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. 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 Spring, Navigation trips with a Fellow of The Royal Institute of Navigation and day sails twice a month in the summer. Occasionally in 2019 we will be hosting longer trips where our guests stay over night in a local hotel and we all meet for a meal in the evening.
Sailing is now finished for 2018 and we would like to wish all our guests a Merry Christmas and a happy and successful new year.
The new programme for 2019 will be published on the website very soon.
We offer Gift Vouchers for a day sail on Sunstar, perfect for Christmas and Birthday presents, contact us for details.
