Sailing Weekend in the Solent 04-05/08/2012

Hi - I have reserved a nice 40 foot fully MCA coded (i.e. all the safety equipment is on board) yacht in Southampton starting Friday 03/08/2012 evening and returning the yacht late Sunday afternoon 05/08/2012.

We plan to sail in and around the Solent with an emphasis on leisurely cruising.

I am a qualified RYA - Dayskipper and have my VHF licence and a few other qualifications. I have skippered in the Solent and the Mediterranean and organised a few meetups for this group which all were great fun.

The plan is to leave London for Southampton around 1730 on Friday and arrive at the boat around 1900 and go for dinner. The next morning we will set sail, cruise around the Solent hopefully incl a swim for the brave ones and spend the night in a marina to combine sailing and socialising.

We will adapt our route to the weather and the level of the crew to make sure everyone on board is safe and comfortable.

Everyone is welcome from absolute beginner to experienced sailor, the emphasis is on having fun and relaxing and everyone will get involved in every aspect of the sailing.

The cost of charter and food on board is £175 per person plus there will be small expenses for meals, marinas and possibly fuel.

Please feel free to ask if you have any queries.

Hope you can join us

Alexander
