Boaters Meeting – Wednesday 15th March 2017 – Barrie Neilson of Sailing Holidays

Barrie Neilson joined the Flotilla Sailing Club in 1979 as a flotilla engineer and subsequently worked as flotilla skipper for six years in Greece, Florida and the former Yugoslavia.


In 1983 he and his partner Heidi took over the business and, in 1987 renamed it Sailing Holidays Ltd, operating with eleven Jaguar 27 yachts.  Years later, Sailing Holidays now has 178 yachts in Greece, all of which are run on flotilla sailing holidays around the Greek islands, and Barrie and Heidi and their grown up children still enjoy flotilla sailing with their customers and friends.  Sailing Holidays remains the only non-corporate flotilla and bareboat specialist in the United Kingdom.

Barrie will tell us something of the changes over the years, and of the enduring pleasures of sailing the Greek islands.sailing-holidays-1
