Great opportunity to sail around the Black Sea…..




Hi, we’re Pep and Mick and this is our lovely boat Indian Summer. We’ve been living on it in Turkey for the last 5 years and now that we’ve moved to Bulgaria, we’d like to share our boat and our love of sailing with you.

For a few weeks this summer, we’re offering short cruises and day trips around the Black Sea Coast. We’re moored at Sveti Vlas, near Bourgas and our trips will start from there but if you want us to pick you up from another point, get in touch. You can spend the day sailing around Nessebar or going up to Varna. We’ll drop anchor somewhere and eat our lunch out on the ocean, sailing back as the sun sets.


Perhaps you’d like an overnight trip? We’ll take a longer trip either north or south, moor in a small jetty and after dinner at a local restaurant, maybe a nightcap on the boat before settling down in our cosy cabins. The boat sleeps 6 and there’ll be two crew so an overnight trip is for a maximum of 4 – both the cabins have double beds so you can work that out yourselves.


Indian Summer is a 40ft sailing yacht and if you’re interested, we’ll both be happy to share our knowledge of sailing – we’ll teach you the ropes! You can help with all aspects of sailing including setting the sails, rope work and mooring techniques and even getting behind the helm. You can have fun doing a bit of weather forecasting and learning a whole new vocabulary about boats and sailing. Or you can just sit with a glass of wine and watch the dolphins. And don’t forget the possibility of swimming and fishing….or sunbathing on the cushions as the wind blows the sails.

Don’t worry if you’ve never been on a sailing boat before – it’s comfortable, you’ll be in good hands and pretty soon you’ll be taking the wheel.


Our prices are for the boat. Four is a comfortable number of people, although it could be five on a day trip – ask us. The boat isn’t really suitable for small children – 7 or 8 years is probably good – this is mainly about height with regard to the rails. There is a toilet and shower on boat as well as a lounge and cooking area. Food and drink are not included so you’ll need a trip to the supermarket to get all your favourite picnic things – we have a fridge to keep the beers chilled.
