Had a great weekend out in the Solent with Hamble Point Charter Skipper and Trainer Paul. I’ve chartered before from Hamble Point and have always been happy. Karen and Alex are extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble. This time I wanted to bring my wife Julie and two kids along. Julie wanted to start her ‘Day Skipper’ training and as I hadn’t skippered a boat for a few years it would be a good refresher for me too. The weather was great which set the scene for the weekend. Paul involved the kids a lot in sailing the yacht, a lot more than I expected; couldn’t believe they got up the on the morning of the second day and completed ‘engine checks’ before we headed off. The kids loved it and can’t wait for the next time and of course Julie and I loved to too and will definitely be out with Paul again very soon for much of the same.
