Get on the Water

 

2018 Sailing Calendar

Hot News!  We have a yacht booked for a three week trip to include Blind Week so get onboard

Week 1:  25/06/18 to 30/06/18  Southampton to Falmouth  cost £240

Sailing from Southampton in Hampshire, the premiere port for departures of luxury cruises, we will sail out of the sheltered waters of the Isle of Wight shadowed Solent, passing the Iconic rock formation – The needles along the coast of Hampshire and Dorset. The area of the Jurassic coast, rounding Portland Bill before crossing the mystical Lyme Bay, steeped in history from the days when it was instrumental in defeating the Armada to the disasters encountered during WW2. There is always a great chance that we will be escorted by a pod of playful Dolphins here, as we continue Westward edging ever nearer to the historic Port of Plymouth; famous for Sir Walter Raleigh. As we sail on we will move from the Devon coastline, onto the more rugged landscape of Cornwall before eventually arriving at the Carrick Rhodes on the river Fal leading us into the Cornish town of Falmouth.

Week 2: 30/06/18 to 07/07/18

Blind Week 2018, Falmouth, please contact Lofty for details on 07854245276

Week 3: 07/07/18 to 13/07/18

The return trip, Falmouth to Southampton Cost £240

Leaving Falmouth in our wake we will sail up the Carrick Rhodes and point our bow eastwards towards Plymouth the home of the Royal Navy’s fleet in the South West of England. The following day we will sail into Torquay; the English riviera on the edge of Lyme Bay. Crossing Lyme Bay where we hope to pick up an escort of Dolphins before rounding Portland Island and resting the night in Weymouth ; King George iii’s favourite seaside resort. A long sail ever eastwards passing Lulworth cove and running adjacent the Purbeck Hills with the Sea Stack of Old Harry rocks off our portside we will sight the dramatic back drop of the needles in the distance marking the entry into the Solent and our refuge for the night in Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. Our final day’s sail will have us rounding the infamous Bramble bank as we alter our course to head up Southampton Water; perhaps accompanied by some of the World’s largest cruise liners, before finally reaching our destination port where we shall disembark.

Do you need experience 

 Yes & No!   First of all we need to know if you do have any experience of sailing, maybe dinghies or yachts, if you have great if you haven’t then no problem.  We’ll make sure that there is always a good mix of people on the boat so the experienced sailors can help those who just want to have a go.  Visa will  make sure that we get you on the right trip, a gentle cruise with regular stops is better for the least experienced while the ones who’ve done it before might go cross channel or do a bit of racing.   Don’t worry if you’ve never set foot on a boat before as every sailor takes great pride in helping someone new to this wonderful pastime.

What does it Cost?

We aim to make every trip good value for money, we can’t give you an exact figure but so you can budget you should reckon on between £30 & £40 per day, remember that includes all your food but not your travel to and from the boat.  Great value and we hope you agree.  Just so you know we are not in this to make money and every penny goes on the trip and no one gets paid!
