Friday Halloween - Day Sail in the Solent

Hi All,

We are running a Day sail in the Solent around the Halloween weekend.y.

For those who have never sailed before this is a great opportunity to get out on a boat and learn about everything. The skipper will be able to walk you through all the different aspects of the boat. Including navigation, helming, sails, triming...


Where do we sleep?
Just to fill in any of the uninitiated, typically yachts are considered to have 4 rooms, three of these rooms are actual rooms and the fourth is the main cabin where the table usually lowers and turns into a bed.

Experience required: None
