Even as your contemporaries sail to the Caribbean to celebrate to Christmas, you take a different course. Hire a yacht from Camper & Nicholsons (CNI) to sail to different shores - cruise the Indian Ocean and Southern Hemisphere. One of the reasons the company is taking a different route is because the Caribbean no longer has the idyllic, white, deserted beaches. Since more number of people travel to the same destination so it is increasingly becoming difficult to find a quiet space. Also the wind in the area during the season is rough, so if you are looking for a tranquil sailing experience in the blue seas then Caribbean is not it.

That is why CNI with its exclusive 60 meter yacht Cloud 9 has extended the cruising ground to remote areas to let sailors to recapture the sense of freedom and adventure such cruising allows. On Cloud 9 you can go to Seychelles, Maldives, and Thailand. Other yachts in the fleet include the 64.5-meter (212-foot) Silver Angel, which will cruise Madagascar, the Seychelles, and the Maldives; and the 56-meter (184-foot) Galaxy, which will charter in the Maldives in November. You can further go to Australia in Galaxy for December and January, and New Zealand through mid-March. Fiji and Tahiti follow, wrapping up her winter program.
