With a strong thirst for exploration and adventure, Rob is preparing to utilize his boating background for the ultimate sailing adventure, an around the world voyage. As a captain for the Sailing Collective, Rob might be found foraging herbs, diving for sea urchins, or making deals with a local restaurant for key ingredients in preparation for onboard cooking. Around the table, Rob immerses himself in the lives of his boat mates, engaging in great conversation, helping to build strong relationships between Sailing Collective members. When not at sea, Rob works as an artist in New York.
Sandy Ho grew up in the western suburbs of Sydney Australia and spent most of her time in the kitchen with her mum perfecting her Vietnamese culinary skills. Widely travelling at a young age, she found a great love for food from all over the world and has a ‘try anything once’ attitude. After finishing a BA in Fine Arts, Sandy relocated to Melbourne where she realised her hobby in the kitchen became a real life dream career and left the artist life to learn about food. She headed the kitchen team at Non for Profit bar Shebeen where her flair for menu and recipe planning also led her to move into private catering for many large and small scale events in the Melbourne area. Her interest lies in the use and care of local and sustainable produce which has given her the opportunity to travel, meet and collaborate with the makers of our food. Sandy joins The Sailing Collective with an agenda to spark positive sharing of flavour and food all around the world.
The Balearic islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, Formentera and Cabrera lie off the eastern coast of Spain, just 60 miles from Valencia. With up to 300 days of sunshine per year, the islands possess a cosmopolitan ambiance, and Balearic culture has become as varied as the islands themselves. There’s something for everyone from secluded bays and quaint fishing harbors to smart seaside towns and modern marinas.

Dietary Restrictions: It is important to notify your Sailing Collective representative of any dietary restrictions ahead of time and fill out details in Guest Form
Collapsible bags in place of large rigid suitcases are advised for ease of transport on and off the boat.
During days on the water, you’ll want to be wearing light and comfortable clothing. As the vast majority of your time will be spent outside, prepare for elements - bring a light rain coat just in case, a hat to shield yourself from the sun, and a set of warm clothing. Throughout the week we may dine out at a nice restaurant, so bring gear that you’ll look nice in and suits your style. Loading and unloading from the dingy can be a wet activity, a pair of shoes that you can get wet is recommended.
Some of our Favorite spots include:
PALMA – CABO BLANCO – ES TRENC
Leave Palma port in the southwest direction and run by Cabo Blanco with its stunning cliffs. You can navigate very close to them if the weather is favorable. Shortly after Cape Blanco is the entrance to Cala Pi, if you're not careful you may miss it - enter in and take a nice swim. After Cala Pi, sail the coast of S 'Estanyol and Sa Rápita. Anchor and spend the night in the southeast part of the beach of Es Trenc surrounded by the dark green of the pine woods, near the Colonia de St. Jordi. There are other anchorage areas east of Colonia de St. Jordi, between the isle of Guardis and the isle of Moltona, but one must also beware of the sand banks. Estimated time: approximately 5 hours.
ES TRENC – CABO SALINAS - CALO MONDRAGO - PORTO PETRO - PORTO COLOM
Mooring in Cabrera Park, MallorcaWeigh anchor in Es Trenc and sail to Cabo Salinas or to head to the National Park of the Archipelago of Cabrera, certainly worth to visit, with its castle crowning the entrance to its natural harbor. If you are in Cabrera, you must bear in mind that you cannot anchor anywhere in the archipelago and moor only in places with bouys. You have to ask for permission at least 3 working days prior to your stay and no more than 20 calendar days in advance. When you pass the Cape Salinas, you will be sailing the east coast of Mallorca where you find numerous coves to anchor and swim. You can enter the Natural Park of Cala Mondragó and anchor in turquoise waters with white sandy bottoms, however there are often many visitors on land. You can choose any of the bays or ports such as Porto Petro or Porto Cristo but we advise Porto Colom which is the best choice for anchoring in Mallorca, the only disadvantage of this superb natural harbour is that the water has a rather cloudy appearance, therefore it is not suitable for swimming, but in all other respects it is the perfect spot for anchoring. Estimated time: 4 hours.
PORTO COLOM - PORTO CRISTO - CALA RATJADA
The third day runs along the coast of Porto Cristo. This region is known as Calas de Mallorca -the coast of the coves. In general the bottom is sandy and provides a firm hold for the anchor and the water is crystal clear. The coves which can be reached by car are packed in summer, however, in the others one can still find peaceful anchorages. All the coves are open for anchoring, except Cala Murada, which doesn't offer real protection anyway. During this day you will enjoy the many coves in the area and spend the night in the port of Cala Ratjada or some natural harbor in the area. Estimated time: slightly more than 4 hours.
CALA RATJADA - CALA FORMENTOR
The fourth day will be spent sailing through the bays of Alcudia and Pollensa, which usually generate good summer thermal winds. The coasts and beaches of the two bays are great and have many choices for anchoring and swimming. We recommend spending the night in Cala Formentor moored to a buoy. Estimated time: approximately 5 hours 45 minutes.
CALA FORMENTOR - PORT DE SOLLER
Calobra, MallorcaThe fifth day you will leave by Cap Formentor - a great place for scuba diving. Navigate through the rugged north coast of Majorca with the Sierra Tramuntana. You should visit Sa Calobra and Torrent de Pareis to reach anchor and spend the night in the Port of Soller where we pick if we had dinner on board or in one of the great restaurants of the port. Estimated time: 6 1/2 hours.
PORT DE SOLLER - PORT ANDRAX
Sail from Port de Sóller and head southwest while viewing the Sierra de Tramuntana to port. In this journey you will see Cala Deia, Sa Foradada, Port of Valdemosa, Banyalbufar and Estellencs. All are beautiful spots where you might want to make the time for a great swim. Later, you will enter the channel Dragonera to arrive at the Port of Andratx to spend the night in a sheltered anchorage - one of the nicest in Mallorca Estimated time: 5 hours
Port Adratx – Palma Port
Leave the Port of Andratx towards the city of Palma where you will finish, but not before visiting the island of Toro and Malgrats, the bay of Santa Ponsa and Playa del Mago. The name of Playa del Mago is said to come from a movie filmed there with the same title, starring Michael Caine and Anthony Quinn. In this bay you can eat at the nice beach bar that is reachable by your dinghy. Estimated time: 4 hours. (See more at: www.boatbookings.com)
The Lagoon 450 has everything you could want in a cruising boat: Incredible performance under sail, wide open deck space for lounging, and an incomparable comfort in the saloon and the cabins. The wide hulls of Lagoon 450 offer comfortable cabins with larger floor space than other catamarans of the size. An airy saloon contains an open concept modern galley (kitchen) and comfortable seating all with stunning panoramic visibility of the natural beauty that you came for. The aft deck is covered by a hard top bimini so that there is always plenty of breezy shaded space for lounging when you are taking a break from the sun drenched foredeck. Up front the netted "trampoline" between the hulls is the ultimate place to enjoy this boat under sail with the sun beaming down and the water rushing below you.
