Destination Jersey,
Description

This is a great opportunity to do some mile-building and visit a great destination - the Channel Islands. As we have 7 days available, we'll aim to visit Alderney, Sark, Guernsey and Jersey, with maybe a short stop in Cherbourg too.

Join the boat in Gosport on Bank holiday monday for an introduction to the boat. Depending on the weather and tides, we'll set off for a night sail aiming to arrive at our first destination the next day. That could be early in somewhere like Alderney, or a little later if we keep going down to Jersey. The scenery around the Channel Islands is magnificent, but there are some big challenges on the way - navigating the Channel at night, shipping lanes and huge tidal ranges. We may stop at anchor on route depending on progress. Mid Channel will give us a taste of off-shore sailing.

In any event, when we stop there'll be time to rest, explore and get nice meals ashore. On Sunday we'll aim to return to Gosport between 4pm and 6pm.

The cost includes your berth on our brand new Nautitech Open 40 catamaran for the week, professional skipper/instructor, fuel & gas, use of all safety gear and snacks & drinks on board whilst sailing. Extras are a share of the mooring costs when we stop and eating out most evenings.
