Experience Sailing Weekend Details

Join the boat on the Friday evening to allow a full days sailing on the Saturday. The exact cruise will depend on the wind and the tide but we have Chichester and Brighton to the East, Christchurch and Poole to the west or perhaps enjoy a nice meal and a glass of wine in France (so don’t forget your passport).

Typical 2 day cruise

Leave Saturday morning with the tide pushing you down through the Solent. Perhaps lunch with the Needles in sight, arriving in Poole late afternoon or early evening before enjoying a relaxed evening ashore.  After a hearty breakfast on Sunday morning it’s time to leave for Hamble, perhaps a spinnaker run back through the Needles before arriving back in Hamble for a quick tidy up.

Typical 3 Day cruise

Leave Saturday morning with our course set for Northern France. Negotiate the shipping lanes before arriving in France Saturday evening in time for a late supper.  Enjoy a relaxing Sunday in France, taking in a few sights, before getting an early night.  It’s up before dawn for the sail back to Blighty and a quick tidy up.

Join the boat on a Friday evening and have 2/3 days sailing before returning on Sunday/Monday afternoon.
