For a very special adventure, join us on our Class 40 racer/cruiser yacht Fortissimo, to sail into the heart of London (or back from London)! Sailing into and out of the River Thames and amongst the sights of London is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Sail past the Seven Sisters and the White Cliffs of Dover into the Thames, under the QE2 Bridge. Negotiate the Thames Barrier and pass the sights including, the O2 building and Greenwich to St Katharine’s Dock, close to Tower Bridge.
You can opt to join us for the passage from Portsmouth to London or for the return passage from London to Portsmouth.
Spaces are limited and are on a first come, first to sail basis!
The return trip from London will begin on Friday 15th September 2017, arriving in Gosport Sunday 17th September 2017.
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.
Sail from London
Join your yacht at St Katharine’s Dock on the evening of the 14th September for introductions and safety briefing. We set sail at HW around 08.30am on the 15th with opportunities to stop at Queensborough, Ramsgate, Dover or Eastbourne, before arriving in Royal Clarence Marina, Gosport.
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. Her interior has had adaptations made to provide comfortable accommodation, but she is not as luxurious as a dedicated cruising yacht. However, what she lacks below, she more than makes up for in her sailing quality and fun!

What an incredible experience! Sailing the bends and turns of the Thames- following the ‘East Enders’ map- fantastic sailing. Thanks to all at Dream or Two!

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.
