    Default Minorca/Menorca charter

    Looking at hiring a yacht for a bareboat charter in Menorca later this year. Does anyone have any experience of/recommendations for charter companies/itineraries etc.
    Not sailed there before, no even sure how to spell it, but first mate has taken a fancy to it.

    Ten years ago we used Menorca Cruising School, based in Port Mahon. Sensible money for a Gibsea 33.

    Great cruising ground, but tricky and expensive in high season.

    Thanks Rotrax
    When you say tricky, do you mean its busy in high season, or tricky to sail around? We're planning on going late Sept so hopefully the worst of the crowds will have thinned by then.

    Tricky to find an anchorage or berth without spending loads.

    Out of season/school holidays should be OK.

    Cuitadella is lovely. Great food if you know how to avoid the tourist traps.

    We are based in Alcudia & Pollenca NE Mallorca 7 yachts 33- 43 Ft 35Nm from Ciutadella if you fancy sailing across its a great landfall. Otherwise Im sure Menorca cruising will be able to help

    Hello, we have booked a boat through Latesail for the end of July. All was good from a booking point of view but not been yet so no idea if it will meet expectations!
