Student Comments
Join us for a fun, full mid-week social day sail on the Solent with one of our experienced skippers. We are ideally placed to get you out into the Solent for a full day on the water, joining us at 9.15am and returning at about 5pm. Your skipper will give you the opportunity to get involved as much or as little as you would like and hopefully you will learn some sailing skills so you can experience what it is like to sail a yacht. You can get involved in hoisting and trimming the sails and if you like even take the helm. We will find a mooring for a sailors lunch! Life jackets and wet weather clothing are included just bring warm comfortable clothes and non-slip, non-marking shoes. A perfect day sailing for the absolute beginner. Cost from £89 per person per day midweek We will need at least 5 to join this trip to make it worth running if you are aged 5 to 17 you must book with a parent or guardian. There is no upper age limit, but average physical ability is required.
