Winter Sailing Season

Hi all,

I’m organising another sailing weekend, this time on Friday 27th January to Sunday 29th January 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 cruising boat sailing weekend at £90 for the weekend (including boat and port fees) plus share of food and fuel. This should be a fun relaxed chance to get out on the water for any level of experience.


See below the key details:


Fri 27 Jan

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 28 Jan – Sun 29 Jan

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, hat, 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: £90 inclusive of boat hire, (fuel and on-board food and pub etc not included). Deposit of £34 payable to confirm place on booking.
