  2. Mike Poole reviewed Seychelles Sailing in Mahé, Seychelles

    To the North of the island of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean the Seychelles does not suffer from a lack of sunlight. The Island of Mahe is home to almost all of the 80,000 inhabitants of the Seychelles. It is also the location of the international airpo…"

  3. Mike Poole reviewed The Dalmatian Coast, Dubrovnik to Korcula in Dalmatian Coast, Croatia

    Croatia is a country built for sailing. The sheer length of coastline (over three and a half thousand miles of it) for this average sized European country is staggering! Not only does this mean that it is easier to find a secluded anchorage (the island …"

  16. Mike Poole reviewed Sailing Norway's Coastline in Vestlandet, Norway

    It may not be the first thing that you would associate with Norway but the climate can prove to be nice and mild even in the Lofoten Islands to the North of the Arctic Circle. Consider chartering a yacht in Norway for a holiday where you really do get aw…"

  18. Mike Poole reviewed Sailing from Toulon in Toulon, France

    When people think of luxury yachting they often think of the South of France, the Cote d`Azur. Not only do some very popular glamorous events take place in Cannes or Monte Carlo just along the coast in Monaco but the 30 harbours have an almost overwhelmi…"

  19. Mike Poole reviewed Sailing in the Bahamas in Bahamas
