Actress Mollie Winnard (Kayla from Corrie) takes a spin on a 49′ Sunseeker yacht in Ibiza

With Ibiza’s increasing status as a 5-star destination, we weren’t at all surprised to hear that a company specializing in amazing competitions was planning to offer the momma of all prizes, to take place right here, on the island. And at least one part of that prize was going to be a luxury boat charter, oh yes!

Once in a lifetime prizes | up for grabs

5 Star Giveaways is a brand new online company who offer really incredible, exclusive prizes via their website. Think Rolex watches, luxury holidays with all the trimmings, Chanel handbags, that kinda thing.

Naturally, the UK based team wanted to come out on one of our slinky yachts to shoot some teaser footage and as luck would have it, our 49′ Sunseeker Portofino was freshly refitted and ready for action, yeh baby!

To help promote their hotly anticipated (and soon to be announced) 2019 Ibiza competition, the 5 Star Giveaway team had enlisted the help of UK actress Mollie Winnard, most recently known for playing Kayla in Coronation Street last summer, in a harrowing storyline that saw her screen father imprisoned & her character kidnap the already devastated abuse victim, Bethany Platt. Here is Mollie in action.

Well, after seeing that, we were all a tad nervous, especially Captain Paul, who actually does get kidnapped sometimes – ‘by overzealous hen parties,’ he insists 😉

Captain’s fishy tales aside, our jitters were completely unjustified. Mollie rocked up with a lovely smile, a twinkle in her eye and jaunty spring in her step. Not menacing at all.

Now, as always, we can’t tell you very much about the trip itself, ladies and gents. What happens on the boat, stays on the boat…

Spritzers & Cava for brunch

We can reveal that both chilled cava & rosé wine spritzers featured in the morning’s highlights and were gleefully imbibed by, ahem, one or two of us. It WAS practically brunch by the time we set off though. Which is perfectly civilised for Ibiza, right?

We may have spent a while chillin’ in the turquoise bay of Sol d’en Serra, after heading north along the east coast from Marina Botafoc where the Portofino is moored…

In any case, a marvellous time was had by all, check out our pics <3
