Looking for a sailing adventure or perhaps you need mileage? Why not join us on a 7 day distance cruise to the West Country or Channel Islands or maybe a weekend dash across the Channel to France? The emphasis during these cruises is very much on fun, enjoyment and confidence building. These cruises are suitable for anybody with some basic sailing experience and are very useful for the more experienced looking to take their Coastal or Yachtmaster practical examinations.
These weekends provide the perfect opportunity to cross the Channel under the guidance of an experienced and patient instructor. The yacht will normally set sail on Friday evening and complete an overnight passage to Cherbourg arriving mid morning on Saturday. Saturday afternoon is free to enable the crew to either catch up on sleep or explore the city. The yacht will set sail on Saturday evening for an overnight passage back to the Solent where she will arrive Sunday lunchtime. Both passages will give the opportunity to experience offshore sailing and navigation, watch keeping and of course negotiating the busy English Channel shipping lanes.
The three and four day trips will follow a similar pattern but will take in other ports of call such as Alderney, St Vaast and possibly Guernsey.
