Easter Solent Eggstravaganza - 3 Days Easter Sailing

Do something different this Easter - We are running a 3 day trip 6th - 8th April (arriving at the yacht evening of the 5th or early morning on the 6th). We will be taking in some of the great harbours and sailing that the Solent has to offer.

We are planning to run the trip on a Beneteau 423 and the yacht will be professionally skippered for your enjoyment and safety.

Prizes for the best Easter fancy dress - so bunny ears and Easter chick outfits are optional but definitely recommended for this trip! Easter eggs included, but you are welcome to bring more....


Who should come?

No experience required to come but if you are thinking about or planning to do any sailing qualifications this is a good chance to make sure you've covered everything you need to.

For those who have never sailed before this is a great opportunity to try your hand at sailing, or sit back and enjoy the sunshine. The skipper will be able to walk you through many of the different aspects of sailing, including navigation, helming, sails, trimming...
