Adventure Cruises 2018

Sailing Adventures! Once again for the summer of 2018 we will be taking several extended cruises from our home berth in the Solent. This time to France, the Channel Islands, the West Country and the Scilly Isles.

Each trip of five to seven days will cover between 100 and 300 nautical miles. During each 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 the 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.

Trip costs include all food on board, mooring fees and use of waterproofs but not transport to and from the start and finish points

  To view the details of each cruise see the tabs below or explore the map - click on the menu icon imenu iconn the top left corner of the map screen and select your area of interest. The map is fully interactive and you can explore the ports, harbours and routes by clicking on the pins and lines.

Destination Guide

Cruise 1 : Gosport-St Malo via Channel Islands (5th-10th June 2018)

Visit various ports & harbours on the Cherbourg peninsula as well as the beautiful islands of Guernsey, Herm and Sark with their wild flower meadows, secluded beaches and no cars! A great way to visit the Islands, especially if it is for the first time. Navigators will enjoy the challenging pilotage provided by these Islands. The final destination of St Malo is a spectacular maritime walled city, you can walk round the whole city in less than a day, there are some excellent restaurants and some very interesting local shops and museums. The pilotage into St Malo is interesting and entry is through an extremely large lock which adds to the fun !!

Testimonials

Could you just pass on my thanks to Lou, for a fantastic and very exciting trip to Honfleur this weekend.
It was a genuine pleasure to be in the company of such a nice bunch of people all who knew way more than me and to end up in probably one of the most beautiful parts of France.
Very hard to actually think of anything that could improve this weekend
Great skipper, great crew.
The safety briefing was particularly good. Crew welfare and importance of rest and food good. Monitoring of conditions and preparation, all sensible and impressive. I learnt a lot.
