Adventure Cruise 2019

Sailing Adventures! This year we have three cruises to choose from all of which are 7 days in length and all start and finish at Gosport.  In June we're going to explore the full extent of the Normandy coast from Cherbourg to Boulogne.  We'll be passing the historic beaches of the D-Day landings and visiting some beautiful little harbours along the way. 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.

We have hand picked the ports of call along the way 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. We will be on the good ship Menai III for this trip so all the comforts of home, well, almost !!

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

  To view the details of the 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. We have added some pictures and a bit of an outline about each place we visit. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

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 choise for our third stop - all very interesting approaches. If you end up in Isigny - don't forget the cheeeeese!
Port en Bessin

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.

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.
