Horizon Sail has this month launched their brand into the travel market with an offering of Croatian sailing tours.
The joint Australian-UK start-up will be operating sailing tours for young professionals and like-minded adventure seekers around the Croatian coast and islands from June 2019.
Horizon Sail co-founder, Wes Baimbridge, had been working as a tour guide in Croatia and around Europe for several years before taking the plunge in starting the company with three friends and former colleagues.
“What we found was that there was a real gap in the market for young professional travellers who want to experience culture, history and gastronomy and not just party all day every day,” said Mr. Baimbridge.
“The Croatian cruising market has been growing steadily for years now and it is really easy to see why with its beautiful coastline, enchanting medieval streets, excellent food scene, laid-back culture and fantastic nightlife”
Horizon Sail have attempted to differentiate themselves from the competition by offering a wide range of trip inclusions, and claiming to be the first sustainability-focussed Croatian sailing company.
“We have found that while many environmental concerns unfortunately haven’t yet gained much local attention in Croatia, the majority of our passengers do care about these things. For example, Horizon Sail will be the first company here to ban plastic straws on our trips,” said Mr. Baimbridge.
Horizon Sail will begin their summer trip departures on the 16th June 2019. For more information visit www.horizon-sail.com
