Award-winning Sailing Experience Days on the Solent
We offer private charters only between October and April
Our popular shared charters resume next summer as usual
Sail from Lymington in the New Forest for an unforgettable day out!
Enjoy a glass of champagne as you set sail on your beautiful, large, comfortable and modern yacht. After a few hours of sailing on the Solent you anchor off the Isle of Wight for a delicious freshly prepared two-course meal, served on deck, and the opportunity for a swim! Afterwards there is more sailing as you head back to Lymington – getting involved as much as you wish – or just sitting back and doing nothing but relaxing!
This is a great day out on your own, as a couple, or with a group of friends and family, clients and colleagues. If there are 8 or more people in your group you have an exclusive, private yacht to yourselves! What better way is there to celebrate a special occasion – a birthday, anniversary, stag or hen do, or even a wedding with a difference?
It’s all included
- Two course hot meal, freshly prepared on board
- We cater for special dietary requirements
- Wine list available on board – or bring your own
- Tea and coffee provided
- Cushions and blankets for your comfort
- All safety equipment provided
- Winner of New Forest Brilliance In Business Award for Outstanding Customer Care
Enjoy top-rated quality service on stunning luxury Jeanneau yachts from 40 to 50 feet. Your yacht is not only a joy to sail but exceptionally comfortable. The cockpit features twin steering wheels, so you can have a go at the helm, an open-air saloon with comfortable seating for entertaining around the cockpit table, and an additional dining and lounge area, with toilets, below deck for relaxing on board!
“Five of us had a wonderful trip on the Solent with Escape Yachting in August. The advantage of sailing with this company is that the guests are encouraged to participate in the sailing experience. This is entirely up to individuals and in no way an obligation! But it certainly contributed to a great day’s sailing and the weather was perfect; the icing on the cake. We can heartily recommend sailing with this professional, but relaxed, team.”
On Board Comforts
You can either leave your skipper and crew to do all of the sailing or get involved, learning as you sail along. No experience or qualifications are required.
It’s all about the little touches with Escape Yachting. Your friendly crew, including a qualified professional skipper, will also act as your steward and chef. Who wants to be doing the cooking and washing up while they’re on a day out? You’ve earned the right to relax and spend time enjoying yourself while we take care of all that for you.
Solent Sail and Stay Breaks
Perhaps you need a little longer to relax. Stay overnight on board after or before your Sail with Lunch or Dinner. Join us on board for a weekend or a couple of days midweek, where the choice is yours – where you go, what you eat, what you do.
Visit pretty harbours at Hamble, Beaulieu or Lymington; maybe you prefer a waterside pub on the Isle of Wight or a stroll around Cowes, world-famous home of yachting; even a shopping trip to Gunwharf Quays in historic Portsmouth?
First Class Sailing
Having sailed with us you might be keen to get sailing qualifications. We recommend contacting our training partners First Class Sailing who offer the full range of RYA yachting courses. We have worked with them for a number of years and their ethos fits well with ours.
