Hi, my name is Dominik, Irek for friends. Why? Nobody remembers anymore… I left the IT career in telecommunication and networking to follow my passion of travelling. I suck at being sociable 😉 but it seems I am good at organizing, hosting and skippering, therefore I lead flotilla sailing holidays. I use this page to present the sailing adventures which I plan.

Feel invited to join if you are open enough to sail with “strangers” for a week! See you on the boat!

Dominik CEO of Naleia Yachting Company

Main Features


I organize affordable one week long sailing holidays where you experience authentic sailing on a 12-16m yacht. No previous experience is needed but you will need a sunscreen 🙂


Naleias’ trips are handcrafted for open-hearted people from all over the world. I usually host 5 nationalities on a 9 people yacht and 2 to 5 yachts in a flotilla. Crews live together in the yachts throughout the trip, so you have a chance to really connect with other great people like you.


The sailing route and daily plan is flexible and can be decided day by day on the basis of the crew`s preferences: sailing is normally blended with snorkelling, sunbathing, exploring islands, caves, and going out for dinner in small coastal villages…

Always Included


A comfy bed on a fully equipped 12-16m sailing yacht, tender, end cleaning, tourist taxes, bed linen, towels, etc… If you join solo you share a same-sex cabin.

Blurb Skipper


Pro Skipper who is in charge of sailing. S/he is a part of your crew, facilitates the trip and shows you the best secret spots.

Flotilla Sailing Holidays with Naleians

So, what is it again?

I organize Naleia Yachting trips for anyone with an open heart and a will to enjoy life. It is a week of sailing and living on a yacht, exploring uninhabited bays, walking through historic towns, eating well in local restaurants, snorkeling, and watching sunsets. As I love nature 1 or 2 nights we drop anchor and stay on a remote island, somewhere in the middle of a paradise…

People who join these flotilla holidays mostly don`t know each other but after a couple of days of experiencing Naleia spirit become a crew, build friendships and sometimes even relationships! Often bonds become so strong that after-sailing-reunion is a common thing. Warning! This holiday may change the way you perceive people, world and yourself. For better.

 Feel Invited!

What people say about us

The trip was fantastic! Nico could not have done a better job. His way of leading the team and teaching us how to sail were just great. I honestly don’t have any suggestions on what you could do to improve the experience, and I’ll definitely sail with Naleia again!

I think I have to sue Naleia for my post sailing depression. Too bad. ;-P

In other words: the sailing week in Greece was a blast! I really enjoyed the sailing, the explorations, the crew, the weather! Couldn’t have been better!

The Sardinia / Corsica sailing week was fantastic.  There was a perfect balance of sailing and adventure with swimming and having fun at anchorages. If I could I would sign up for the Sicily week but my work commitments prevent me from doing so….
