Sailing Holidays, Charter and Channel Hops

Our sailing holidays can be a mixture of activities, explorations ashore and pure relaxation. We aim to arrive at a new harbour or anchorage each evening after the day's sailing. Whichever direction we head in there are many interesting places to visit.

We set sail with mixed parties on board; single people, couples, friends or families, who book by the berth. However, it is also possible for private parties to charter an entire vessel (please contact Lou or Jim for details).

On board all the boats teamwork is the order of the day. Everyone can join in under the expert guidance of the skipper. Alternatively, you can just tuck yourself up in a corner with a good book - how much or how little you choose to do on your sailing holiday is entirely up to you.

Adventure Cruises

This summer will be taking several extended cruises from our home berth in the Solent to France, the Channel Islands, the West Country and the Scilly Isles.
Each trip of seven days will cover between 300 and 400 nautical miles. During the cruise you will get the chance to hone your crewing or skippering skills or just relax and enjoy the sailing. We have hand picked the ports of call along the way so exploring ashore should be just as interesting. Some of the cruises offered will involve spending two or more days and nights at sea, and can have the feel of a real ocean passage.

Channel Hops to France or the Channel Islands

After joining your crew on Thursday/Friday evening, we set off for a day crossing to either or Cherbourg or St Vaast, arriving for an evening meal ashore. You will be free to explore the town Saturday/Sunday before leaving for a night crossing home. This trip provides experience navigating busy shipping lanes by day and night, pilotage into an unfamiliar port & once safely berthed, time to sample great French cuisine. Potential Coastal Skippers/Yachtmasters should see this as an opportunity to complete a 60M qualifying passage.
