Weekend adventures

Why not try one of our adventure sailing weekends before we set off on our big adventure, throughout 2017 we will be sailing on cross Channel weekends and visiting the Channel Islands, come and explore these beautiful places and learn about our style of cruising?

On our Training Weekends, we will be spending the time getting to know the boat and how she sails, then we will be setting sail into the English Channel along the coast, depending on weather and tide we might head west towards Weymouth or across the channel to Cherbourg.

Ports of call

Learning on The Solent

Learning on The Solent

The Solent provides the perfect location to conduct our initial training. This gives us time to ensure that everyone has the core skills and is confidently tacking and gybing, reefing and helming before we set off down the channel.

Cowes, Isle of Wight

Cowes, Isle of Wight

We will start and finish in Cowes on the Isle of Wight, there’s nowhere better than Cowes for sailing. This is the home of Cowes Week, the oldest and biggest sailing regatta in the world. Cowes is a vibrant, exciting place at any time, with sporting and cultural events throughout the year. It’s a sophisticated resort you won’t want to miss. The town stretches across the mouth of the River Medina estuary.

Cherbourg

Cherbourg

One of the first places that the Titanic visited on its fateful journey and quickly liberated from the Nazis after the Normandy Landings, Cherbourg has a rich and often tragic past. Both events are marked in outstanding museums in the city, with a brilliant Titanic exhibition in the famous Citè de la Mer ('City of the Sea'), which is also home to the incredible La Redoubtable, the world's largest submarine open to visitors, and the Musée de la Libération ('Liberation Museum') inside the 19th century Fort du Roule that crowns the summit of the Montagne du Roule.

Weymouth

Weymouth

Weymouth is a seaside town in Dorset, southern England. Its sandy beach is dotted with colourful beach huts and backed by Georgian houses. Jurassic skyline, a revolving viewing tower, and Victorian Fort offer great harbour views.
