Sail to London

Join your yacht in the morning at Royal Clarence Marina, Gosport. After preparations and introductions we head out to sail east. Depending on weather and tides the sail will lead to stops in Eastbourne, Dover or Ramsgate to await the tide for the onward passage into the Thames Estuary and onwards into the River.  The flood tide will enable arrival time at St Katharine’s Dock to be around 18.00hrs.

Join your yacht at St Katharine’s Dock on 19th September for introductions and safety briefing. We set sail at HW with opportunities to stop at Queensborough, Ramsgate, Dover or Eastbourne, before arriving in Royal Clarence Marina, Gosport.

The minimum qualification level for this trip is RYA Competent Crew level. This trip could involve night sailing and fairly long passages. Depending upon the weather there will be opportunities to stop over in Queensborough, Ramsgate, Dover or Eastbourne each way.

Your skipper will be one of our RYA instructors, so giving you the opportunity to learn while you sail.

You will be sailing our racer/cruiser yacht Fortissimo. She is a Class 40 yacht.

However, what she lacks below, she more than makes up for in her sailing quality and fun!

  • What our Clients say
    Great sail from London to Portsmouth; thoroughly enjoyed it. Fortissimo is very different to any boat I have sailed on previously. The difference in speed is exhilarating and surfing down the waves is amazing.
