Catamaran Sailing Weekend
Join us for a three-day catamaran sailing weekend.
Enough time to head across the Channel or further along the coast to Weymouth.
We'll make the most of the three days and use the tides to head out of the Solent either across the Channel (to Cherbourg or Alderney) or along the coast (East to Brighton or West to Weymouth). The exact destination depends on the weather and the preferences of the guests.
We'll meet on Friday evening and the skipper will familiarise you with the boat and the equipment on board. It doesn't matter if you are running late, you can join us in the pub for a meal, or alternatively come down early on Saturday.
On Saturday morning we'll have a safety brief and then set off for the day. The skipper will get you involved in handling the sails, helming, keeping watch, some navigation and of course the domestics. We usually try to get as far as possible on the Saturday and the use Sunday and Monday for a more leisurely return with an overnight stop on the way. We aim to arrive back in Portsmouth around 4pm.
The cost includes 3 nights and 3 days on board, professional skipper, use of all safety equipment, and fuel. We'll share the cost of food on board and overnight mooring costs (typically around £15/£20 each). Accommodation is in double berths with lee cloths to provide privacy, or you can choose to sleep in the outer saloon or a small crew cabin.
3 of 3 berths available
