Why you should make Porto Montenegro part of your 2018 cruising calendar
From New Zealand’s Millennium Cup and the St Barths Bucket to the Superyacht Cup in Mallorca and Greece’s Spetses Classic, yacht owners with a penchant for thrilling racing are spoilt for choice. However, if you’re looking for more intimate action and an itinerary that suits your exact preferences, few destinations can rival Porto Montenegro Yacht Club’s (PMYC) Stay and Sail packages.
Taking place in Boka Bay, surrounded by the stunning scenery of Montenegro, the Stay and Sail packages offer guests a combination of gorgeous cruising by day and world class accommodation by night. PMYC's impressive fleet of sailboats includes a range of seven metre J70s, eight metre Blu26s and a Tofinou 9.5 catering for all skill levels and able to take up to five passengers plus a skipper. Of course, after a long days sailing a luxurious place to rest your head is a must and guests can choose from a range of high-end hotels including the Regent Porto Montenegro, Hotel Pine and Hotel Palma. Small groups can also take advantage of Porto Montenegro's one to four bed residences which come complete with private terraces, gym access and 24-hour concierge.
Those looking for more competitive action can also opt for one of Porto Montenegro's bespoke regattas. Lasting from two to five days, each of PMYC’s regattas is tailored to your specifications and battled out on the yacht club’s eight J70 sailboats making them the perfect option for both competitive sailing and vacations with family and friends – especially as RYA certified sailing courses can be included as part of the experience.
And, while with four to six hours of sailing per day during your stay days will be full, should you wish to extend your time in Porto Montenegro you will find plenty to keep you entertained year round. As well as its member lounge and 64 metre infinity pool, the yacht club boasts berths for yachts up to 250 metres, a fitness centre, tennis courts, two restaurants and a nightclub and is surrounded by chic hotels and residences.
Away from the marina there are a whole host of activities to keep restless sailors entertained during their days off. While swimming and water sports are the obvious options during the summer months, those visiting in winter – traditionally thought to be the off season – are at no more of a disadvantage. PMYC’s lifestyle concierge team are on hand to arrange everything from skiing and snowmobiling in Kolasin to off road Jeep tours, helicopter rides and hiking. For those looking for a little downtime, a trip to the local traditional markets, relaxing spa treatments and high-end shopping are all also on the agenda.
