Bank Holiday Sailing Weekend Around Isle of Wight to Poole Harbour.

Poole Harbour

Due to popularity of this trip I will now be arranging a second yacht.

I am arrranging a Three day  sailing weekend on MCA coded 42ft yacht from Portsmouth Harbour.


The plan is to meet on friday evening, familiarize ourselves with the yacht.
Saturday morning we will set sail East past Bembridge Ledge, then sail clockwise around the South side of The  Isle of Wight, past Ventnor St Cathrine's point and The  Needles, continuing  West across Christchurch Bay past Sandbanks  entering the beautiful  Poole Harbour.  We  will spend Saturday Evening in Poole.

We will set off early Sunday  morning sailing along The Needles Channel entering The Solent at Hurst Point.  We will spend Sunday evening in Lymington Monday we will explore the Solent, continue East returning to Portsmouth Harbour  about 4pm on Monday  afternoon .


Trip will be a useful mile builder. Chance to practise pilotage and passage planning. Suitable for beginners, experienced RYA instructor on board.


The Yacht is located in Haslar Marina, Gosport. There is free parking. Portsmouth Harbour station is very closeby.


If it suits, it is possible to arrive at the yacht much later Friday evening or even early Saturday morning.
