Racing Yacht Charter

All our racing yachts are available for charter. This means you can have the boat just for your group for all the major events around the world.

We ship our yachts to the Caribbean and the Med every year. Ready for you.

Mile building trips

Fancy a trip to France? Or the Med? We have lots on offer, long-range mile builders (UK to Med) as well as week-long trips closer to home.

It’s an ideal way to get the qualifying miles for your next course, practice skippering or just chill out and enjoy a different place and local food every night. What can be better!

Day Sailing Experience

We offer half day and full day sailing experience. No experience necessary, come along and have a great day out on the water!

Make sure you have a look, it’s great fun and you can buy gift vouchers too! Solent Day Sailing.

Corporate events

Every season we work with some pretty exciting clients, providing top notch client entertainment and corporate days out for them. We do relaxed sailing days out, group teaching, or if you fancy something a bit more intense – we do full on match racing and fleet racing.
