A Full Service
Yacht Charter Company


Cruising Sample Itinerary

Friday

  • Meet one of our staff at Port Hamble Marina and the yacht is available to you from 16:00hrs.
  • You receive a full and thorough briefing about the yacht and all of its equipment *

* If you are a skippered charter client then your skipper will brief you about the boat. Now is a great time to let your skipper know if there is anything in particular you would like to do during your weekend.

  • Relax and enjoy the evening in Port Hamble which is only a short walk away from Hamble Village or Cowes is reachable in an hour and a half (weather dependant)

Saturday

  • Breakfast could either be on board or at the Banana Wharf Bar & Restaurant (located under the Marina office) or The Yacht Catering Company (located within the boat yard at Port Hamble). Both offer a selection of breakfast options.
  • Depending on wind and tides there are a variety of places to visit all within easy reach.

These are just a couple of options if you are new to the Solent:

Option 1: Overnight in Cowes - After a morning sail around the Solent you could opt to stop off at Newtown Creek to enjoy a picnic lunch on board. After lunch Cowes is a short sail away and if you have time you could easily enjoy the beautiful scenery that the Beaulieu River has to offer before mooring up in Cowes for the Evening.

Option 2: Overnight in Yarmouth/Lymington - If the tides are favourable then Yarmouth or Lymington are both great options (Please note that in the height of the summer you are advised to book a berth in advance as both of these locations are popular). Lymington is a beautiful Georgian town with designer Boutiques, which is world renown as a sailing resort; there are two large marinas Berthon and the Yacht Haven which both offer great facilities. Yarmouth is a natural Harbour which is guarded by Yarmouth Castle; the town offers a bustling fishing town with an active community all year round.

Sunday

Option 1: Coming back from Cowes: There is much about the Eastern Solent which is often missed. Osbourne Bay is a popular place to anchor for lunch or even swim on a nice day. Then if you head towards the forts off Portsmouth Harbour there is plenty of interest on route. Stokes Bay is another popular place to anchor. If you dont want to visit Portsmouth itself you can opt to anchor in Priory Bay which is Island side.

Option 2: Coming back from Yarmouth/Lymington: If tides are favourable then The Needles and Alum Bay are not to be missed. Then have a fantastic sail back down to Hamble.
