Easy Going Weekend Sailing Trip for All Levels

Here is another trip for everyone incl. absolute Beginners, within easy reach of London and we try something new: You can either join Friday evening or Saturday morning avoiding the rush out of the office on Friday evening and sleeping only one night on the boat, if you come on Saturday. If you can come only for one day that is possible too. The price does not change, but we will either return to Southampton or Cowes from where you can easily return to London, so absolute flexibility. (Just let me know upfront).

Hope to see you all...

Saturday 09/07:
We start at around 0930 with a safety briefing and then, depending on weather, wind and crew we aim to sail around the Solent and to the Isle of Wight, visiting Beaulieu and Cowes or maybe Lymington or Yarmouth. Then go ashore for a stroll and/or dinner and stay overnight in one of the marinas, sleeping on the boat. There are some really nice pubs and bars if we decide to "push the boat out" a bit...

Sunday 10/07: 
Depending on weather and the night before we will get up at a leisurely time, have breakfast on the boat and have another day of leisurely sailing. We will arrive at around 1600 tidy the boat and return to London. So you can be back in time for the football final.

The yacht is a 38 foot Beneteau with MCA safety coding for 8 people. We will be 6 to 8 people on board and everyone will get involved in every part of sailing. This trip is for people of all levels including complete beginners.

If the trip is cancelled you will receive a refund, if the trip is changed you will not. By joining this trip you confirm that you are in good health and are a competent swimmer.

You take part at your own risk and absolve the Skipper and crew from all liability arising out of any action or inaction, with the exception of intentional harm.

The weekend will go ahead as the yacht is booked and paid for. This trip is also advertised on other sailing meetup groups, so some crew members may be from those.
