Picture this - the wind in your hair, the wide empty ocean embracing you, an unforgettable adventure on your to-do list and nothing but your intuition to guide you. This is what being out on a sailboat feels like. A sailboat is a boat that doesn’t run on fuel or motors. Its motion is guided simply by the wind and the sails. For the undaunted and the gutsy, an escapade out on a sailboat is the way to make your vacation all the more exciting. You can have the sea all to yourself with your favourite company and make a day of it.
Regardless of whether you’re a sailing enthusiast or a complete beginner, a sailing boat can make your day out fun. All you have to do is get a hang of a handful of how-tos with regard to managing a sailboat. This is important because sailboats require manual operation and unless you hire a skipper, you will be the one doing it. Hence, to be able to sail well, you need to know how to read the weather, feel the tide, understand the wind and know your boat like the back of your hand. Yes, the cables, knots, pressure, masts, keels and all!
You can also obtain a nautical licence or a seaman’s licence that has been made compulsory in some countries to ensure safe sailing. Sailboats can help you glide across the great blue and into a volcanic sunset! What’s more? They’re sustainable, comfortable and big enough to fit just your favourite people.
Sailboats go where the wind takes them. Until of course, you adjust the sails. Sailing boats work according to the laws of aerodynamics and hydrodynamics. The wind pushes against the sails and guides the motion of the water as well. Together, they help propel your sailboat forward, toward your new adventure! A successful sailing experience begins with a basic understanding of how a sailboat works. In the end, only you can guide the motion of your sailboat and the course of your journey.
To be an efficient and controlled sailor, it’s important to know how each and every part of the boat functions. The most important part of a sailboat is the keel or the centreboard found underneath a sailboat. Sometimes the water current can push against the side of the sailboat. The keel keeps the boat from sliding sideways. Some keels have a heavy concentration of lead or iron to offer form stability and ballast that prevents them from capsizing. Some sailing boats don’t have heavy keels but a centreboard that depends on the weight of the sailors to maintain balance. Your position ensures that the boat doesn’t capsize and as a sailor, you need to be aware of it at all times.
Finally, the angles of your sail determine whether your sailboat will move straight ahead, reverse, take a turn or remain where it is. Use your sailboat’s telltales or mastheads to figure out the wind’s direction. To master the wind is to master your day out at the sea.
While sailboats work with the wind, motorboats rely on engines and fuel to make their way through the ocean. This means a sailboat is sustainable. Not just that, it is quiet and peaceful, just the way a day out at the sea should be. The fuel costs make sailboats the more economical option between the two. Moreover, burning fuel can create an odour that can overpower everything else and become quite unbearable.
No experience is ever fulfilling enough without the excitement of the journey. Sailboats bring challenge and excitement to your adventure, something that will make your journey fun before you’ve even reached your destination. When you want to embark on a fun trip with your loved ones, a sailboat can help make it memorable. You can slow down the boat when you want, stop it, let it glide around without any noise and enjoy tackling the challenges of operating it with your favourite company.
Both boats have their benefits depending on your needs. If you’re looking to get somewhere fast, a motorboat comes in handy. However, if you’re looking to have a good time out in the blue, sailboats are ideal. They’re safer, more reliable since they don’t run out of fuel and are a great way to build team spirit and discipline. Not many adventures are as thrilling as being out on a sailboat.
Goa’s great blue embrace makes it an irresistible haven for sailors and their sailboats. The sea, a tantalising turquoise blending into the many hues of the dusk is a sight for the sore eyes and the daring souls. If you enjoy sunsets from the beach, you don’t even know how magnificent they can be from the sea.
Sailing in Goa opens up a unique opportunity to indulge in the many offbeat travel opportunities the state has to offer. You can plan a date, a proposal, a honeymoon, a day out with your friends or even your family. The possibility of enjoying a day away from the crowd with nothing but just the sound of the sea can be a life-changing experience.
The charters for sailboats start at Dona Paula. This beach is located along the coastline that moves up north to meet the river Mandovi. You could choose to sail up the river Mandovi to get a panoramic view of Panjim city, the Atal Setu bridge towering over it, the Salim Ali bird sanctuary in Chorao and even glimpses of Old Goa. If you’re the more adventurous kind, you could sail down south to discover the lesser-known, offbeat Goa that hides many beautiful secrets in plain sight. Agonda, Palolem, Gokarna are some aesthetic locations to go visit on a sailboat. You could choose to stop at each one of these beaches, something that wouldn’t be economically feasible on a motorboat. You can even stop at a diving spot such as the Grande Island and take a tour of the deep blue. However, it is advisable to do it under expert guidance if you lack the knowledge, gear or experience. The sky's the limit as you sail into the expansive Arabian Sea.
Sailing in a sailboat or a catamaran is unlike anything else you have ever done. While yachts can be bigger and more complex to operate, sailboats can easily navigate into shallow waters and open up new opportunities for exploration. Being out on a sailboat can be quite a thrilling experience accompanied by plenty of planning and with no time to be idle (unless of course, you decide to take a break). You can choose to take your day wherever you want to with your sailboat without the worry of traffic and fuel costs.
The cost of renting a sailboat in Goa varies depending on multiple factors. The weather condition, the type of boat, the number of people, the boat’s age, and the season, affect the rental process directly and hence affect the rental rates too. Moreover, if you do decide to get a small motor put in or request the service of a skipper or a professional crew, it can further affect the final rent amount. Hence, it is advisable to invest some time in research before you book a sailboat in Goa. Make sure you know where you want to go, with whom and for how long.
The rent for a typical sailboat in Goa starts at around ₹20,000 a day and can vary depending on the size of your boat and your date of reservation. You wouldn’t need to pay for fuel and the rent amount will be the only expense you will have to make for your boat. Lastly, before you decide to rent a sailboat, make sure you update yourself with the necessary knowledge about handling it.
Goa’s golden coastline is a dream come true for sailors. The water is just calm enough along the entire western border to indulge in a smooth sailing experience.

One of the most loved sites for both sailors and divers alike is the Grande Island, also known as Ilha Grande. The water is a crisp green and home to some exotic flora and fauna worth witnessing. It makes for a perfect picnic destination.
If you’re up for a bigger adventure, you can sail along Goa’s Northern and Southern coasts to explore their hidden secrets. Apart from that, the Dona Paula bayside is full of historical sights and stories worth exploring.

The regulations with regard to nautical licences depend entirely on the laws of the region where you would like to sail. Even then, while some states in India might not make a nautical licence obligatory, the rental service owner might.
