After a safety briefing with tea or coffee we sail down the harbour and, if conditions are right, cross the Solent towards the Isle of Wight. Here we have the possibility 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, some people 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!
Sunstar is available for exclusive charter for a minimum of 4 guests but individuals who would like to come sailing with other like minded people can book onto one of our Sailing Days.
We have wildlife watching trips in the winter, day sails in the summer and occasional longer trips where our guests stay over night in a local hotel and we all meet for a meal in the evening.
