Reduced Cost Sailing Weekend on the Solent

Hi all,

I’m organising another sailing weekend, this time on Friday 14th October to Sunday 16th October for any London Sailing Club members who know that there's no such thing as bad weather...just the wrong clothes.  What’s more the weekend will cost significantly less than a normal mid-season sailing weekend at £140 for the weekend including boat and port fees and on-board food for the weekend. This should be a fun relaxed chance to get out on the water for any level of experience.


See below the key details:


Fri 14 Oct

17:30 Dep. from Waterloo (or make your own way to Haslar Marina in Gosport).

19:30 leave bags on the boat and meet at the pub for supper

20:30 pub supper

Night on boat


Sat 15 Oct – Sun 16 Oct

08:00 breakfast on board

09:00 safety briefing and departure for Isle of Wight (depending on weather forecasts and wishes of crew)

Evening: night in marina on the Solent

Return to Haslar Marina in Gosport around 16:00 on Sunday


The boat: 2010 Bavaria 38 berthed at Haslar Marina

What to bring? A soft weekend bag, sunglasses, hat and suncream, something warm, wet weather gear can be hired extra (I will need to check prices), non-marking shoes, sleeping bag, towel and pillow case.

Cost: £140 inclusive of boat hire, fuel and on-board food (pub etc not included). Deposit of £34 payable to confirm place on booking.
