Adventure Cruise 2019

Sailing Adventures, climb aboard for a great experience. This year we have two cruises to choose from both of which are 7 days in length and both start and finish at Gosport.  In June we're going to explore the Normandy coast from Cherbourg to Honfleur (one of our favourites). This will be an interesting trip taking in some beautiful little ports with some very interesting pilotage, most of them are drying !!! 

The second trip is in August where we escape the Solent during Cowes week and get in some great mileage down to St Malo. We will be taking both boats on this trip with Lou skippering one and Jim the other (no racing !!). We will explore some of the Brittany coast going to places we haven't been to before and stopping off at Guernsey on the way back. 

We have hand picked the ports of call along the way for both trips but equally we are flexible and as a member of the crew you will have a say in where we go and how long we stay. This is a great chance to build some miles whilst sailing in some fantastic waters, there will be opportunties to skipper legs if you would like and to do some interesting pilotage. Alternatively you could just come along for the ride, relax, take in the sun and the views and get a bit of sailing under your belt.

Trip costs include all food on board, mooring fees and use of waterproofs but not eating ashore.

Destination Guide

GOSPORT - WEST NORMANDY COAST - GOSPORT  8th - 14th June 2019

Here's a little taste of some of the harbours we might visit. Although, as there's so many to choose from, and the tides can be difficult to juggle, it may well change slightly, a chance to get involved with some interesting planning and pilotage.
Cherbourg
Cherbourg is a busy commercial and fishing port but the old town and the seafront restaurants are charming.
St Vaast 
Welcome to the oyster capital of Northern France.  Stunning views at low tide of the bay and the old prison island.
Carentan/Isigny Sur Mer/Grandcamp Maisey
Spoilt for choice for our third stop - all very interesting approaches. If you end up in Isigny - don't forget the cheeeeese!
Port en Bessin
A small fishing harbour west of Arromanches during the Normandy landings of World War II. The village was between Omaha beach to the west in the and gold beach to the east.
Courseulles
A pretty little town near to the famous Juno beach of the D-Day landings
Deauville
Well-known all over the world, Deauville is a high-society seaside resort renowned for its festivities and its prestigious establishments
Honfleur
Ports don't come any prettier than Honfleur on the Seine's estuary. Glorious historic houses jostle for position on the quays, as do galleries and restaurants.
Gosport
Gosport - Brittany Coast - St Malo - Guernsey 10th - 16th August 2019

Looking forward to some new destinations on this cruise along the Brittany Coast, again tidal dependant at times adding to the fun.

Omonville de la Rogue
This destination is very much a staging post to get through the race and make the most of the tide, if weather is not conducive we will head for Cherbourg and go from there.

Dielette
A popular harbour with a town that has seen many changes throughout its long history, it's more recent investment has been improving the towns leisure offer.

Granville
Really looking forward to visiting this ancient walled community on the Brittany Coast. Said to be a lively town and very french.

St Malo
Again a beautiful walled city with small cobbled streets and a view over towards Jersey. You can walk the whole city wall, look out at sea or down into the town. Visit the many artisan shops or spend some time on the beach. Interesting navigation through the larget lock I have ever been in.

Guernsey
Definately a favourite of mine in the Channel Islands, lots of things to see and historical places to visit, good food and shopping if this is your thing. No longer dependant on tides to get into the marina as the external pontoons are now all walk ashore.

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.
