What is the difference between Party and Ultra Sail Week?

You decided to do Eurotrip this summer and doing SailWeek is definitely on the list. You are just not sure what Week to pick? Party, Adventure, Ultra Week 1, Ultra Week 2...

Circle raft party on Ultra Sail Week Croatia

What is the difference? What's the gender ratio? What's the average age? What is included? How much is the extra cost?

So many question to ask while trying to figure out what route would be the best for you.
The difference between Adventure and Party is clearly shown in one of our previous blogs.

NUMBER OF BOATS PER WEEK

PARTY

Our story started with the Party Sail Week and up to today It has been the most popular route.

In the high season the number of boats goes up to 30 per week. In early June, late August and September it's more likely the number of boats is going to be around 10-15. On busier weeks we have circle raft parties and on less busier weeks line raft parties.

ULTRA

Ultra Sail Weeks are closely related to the Ultra Europe music festival and in those two weeks we always have around 50 boats per fleet.

One of the most recognizable things about Ultra Sail Week is our famous circle raft party with more than 50 yachts and a DJ.

DATES

  • PARTY: Party starts June 2nd and finishes September 8th. That means You've got 14 weeks to choose from.
  • ULTRA: Ultra is on for just two weeks, from June 30th to July 14th.

AVERAGE AGE

We would say it's the same on both routes. Mostly people from 18 to mid 30s, group of friends, couples, single travellers from all around the world.

Average age on Sailweek cruises is from 18 to 35

GENDER RATIO

Through the last couple of seasons the gender ratio was always somewhere around 50% - 50%. That doesn't mean that we don't have weeks with more guys than girls or other way around.

International mixed gender crews on Sail Week Croatia

GROUP OF FRIENDS

If you are travelling with friends and booked a full yacht, You already know the most of your crew.
If you booked spots we'll place you on a mixed gender yacht with people similar age.

COUPLES

If you are a couple, it's more likely We'll put you on the boat with other couples or group of friends.

SINGLE TRAVELLERS

If you are a single traveller, you'll probably share a bunk bed cabin with other single travellers of same gender. You'll be put on the mixed gender boat.

Of course it's difficult to make the perfect crew lists regarding age, gender and preferences but we always do our best. If you have any special requirements please contact us at info@sailweek.tours or put your preferences in the note while fulfilling the crew list details

WHAT IS INCLUDED

Everything and by that we really mean everything.
