Yacht Week has created a bespoke 7-day sailing trip-of-a-lifetime designed for sophisticated and party-loving crowds in their late 30s, 40s and beyond. Taking place from 22nd – 28th June in Sardinia, Yacht Week’s ‘Refined Route’ brings a touch of style and luxury, together with parties, exploration, and culture to connect with the perennially young at heart. It’s a chance for those who might have booked a villa in Ibiza or Mykonos with friends to try something new and exciting, sleeping under the stars and sailing through the crystal-clear Mediterranean, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Emerald Coast. Places are limited and are on sale now at www.theyachtweek.com/sardinia-40.

They say that 40 is the new 30 but with Yacht Week’s Refined Route it doesn’t need to be. This is a bucket-list experience carefully tailored to like-minded peers who share the same zest for life. The Refined Route delivers everything that makes Yacht Week so popular with young, adventurous travelers across the world, with a sprinkle of added sophistication. It’s also a chance for those who went on Yacht Week when they were younger to experience that magic once again.

Yacht Week has been creating unforgettable sailing trips for 17 years and there is no better location than the spectacular Emerald Coast to start a new adventure. Guests will board a luxurious yacht with a skipper and host, trained to deliver an incredible experience and prepare meals using local, in-season produce. They will learn to sail and adapt to ‘yacht life’ as they carve through the glittering waters of the Sardinian coastline – even sailing to the magical French town of Bonifacio on the island of Corsica, enjoying swim stops in beautiful natural bays and open-air parties along the way.

When they’ve worked up an appetite, guests can delight their senses with exquisite French and Italian cuisine. Dinners are a social affair as Yacht Week’s Refined Route visits some favorite foodie hotspots, from steak houses to traditional restaurants, with live music and incredible views. Sardinian sunsets are a sight to behold, and guests can soak these up while enjoying a cocktail with friends, old and new, on land or back aboard their yacht.

When it’s time to party at sea, Yacht Week provides the iconic circle raft and tunnel raft parties. Yachts join together to create a space where guests can step out of ‘real life’, jump on a floating daybed or inflatable flamingo with more cocktails and the crew, and party to live DJs dropping the perfect summer tunes. It’s also time for yacht-hopping to meet and hang out with the rest of the flotilla.

The parties continue on land, with the Dockside Party in the beautiful port town of La Maddalena, after sailing the translucent seas of the stunning La Maddalena archipelago; a scatter of 7 large islands and 55 tiny isolotti, with some of the most spectacular beaches in Italy.

For those who want a bit more action, there is plenty on offer, from exploring the wild terrain of southern Corica in a 4×4 buggy to scuba diving in some of the clearest water in the Mediterranean, to the adrenaline hit of jet-skiing across the waves. Guests can even hike up to the historic old town of Bonifacio atop the sheer white cliffs with unforgettable coastal views.

When it’s time to relax, there is always beachside yoga, a swim in the calm, blue waters, or another cocktail and a memorable sunset.

It’s true, that life does begin at 40 for some, but those in their late 30s looking for a sophisticated way to travel are welcome on the Refined Route too. Those ready to jump on board should get their crew of friends together, head over to https://www.theyachtweek.com/sardinia-refined-route to book a yacht and prepare to set sail for the ultimate adventure.
