After a safety briefing with tea or coffee we sail down the harbour and if conditions are right cross the Solent to the Isle of Wight, usually Bembridge or Seaview. Here we have the opportunity of anchoring for a picnic lunch or picking up a buoy and visiting a local sailing club and the surrounding village. During the trip all our guests have the opportunity of taking part in the sailing or just sitting back and relaxing, and on summer days, many people (especially the younger ones!) like to swim from the boat. In the afternoon we return to Chichester and with a favourable wind direction sail right up the harbour to the marina.
Many of the possible variations include sailing through the Forts to Portsmouth Harbour. Here you will have the opportunity of viewing the warships and perhaps having lunch on the Lightship, returning in the afternoon through the submarine barrier. Or simply enjoy sailing in the Solent towards Cowes while watching the great variety of yachts, ships and pleasure boats that use our waters. Whatever you choose, an enjoyable day out!
