Weekend Sailing

Escape from it all with a weekend sailing. Learn new skills, improve existing ones, build miles or just come for a jolly. A weekend sailing on a boat is like a week on a beach.

We have a number of weekend sailing options to choose from on a variety of boats.

Have a go at skippering a 60nm passage over to Weymouth or Cherbourg and back on our weekend Mile Building trips. Experience Gaff Rig Sailing on our traditional wooden sailing boat built in 1908. Practice your Boat Handling in a marina, dash around the Isle of Wight in the annual Round the Island Race, sail a 72ft steel yacht on a Heavy Weather Sailing weekend, practice using a sextant or just come for a fun weekend of sailing in the Solent.

One thing is for sure - whatever weekend sailing option you choose you will come back feeling refreshed and recharged.
