Join us for a 5 day cruise of the English Channel, build your sailing skills and experience, cruise new and unfamiliar waters beyond the Solent and gain more sea miles.
Our Channel and West Country Sailing Weekends have a flexible itinerary depending upon the weather. We may head west along the Dorset coast or south to France and the Channel Islands, hopefully both. Don’t forget your passport!
You will be sailing our fast cruising/racing 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! Sailing regularly at 10 knots means we can travel further afield and have more options. Arriving earlier means you will have time to explore ashore as well.
This year we will be cruising to Guyader in France for the Grand Prix Guyader. This will be a five day cruise starting from Gosport making the most of the wind conditions exploring the Channel Islands, the West Country and North and South Brittany Coasts. Please note that the final destination is not the same as the departure point, and you will have to make your own travel arrangements from Guyader, France.
