Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent 7 days on the summer cruise, visiting various ports along the south coast then over to Alderney and Cherbourg. As a coastal skipper it is always excellent experience to sail with other of similar skills and although it’s not a training week there is always something to learn, and Simon is always willing to explain anything you want to know.
The other crew on board were all excellent and we got on well as we all share the same passion for sailing.
Although the weather made it challenging at times being on the water in a F8, it was great to be with Simon with his wealth of sailing knowledge and the yacht keeping us and the yacht safe.
One of the highlights was being accompanied by a pod of dolphins for and hour or so mid channel.

Excellent experience all round even when the going was less than smooth!

Thanks to everyone on board!

Excellent 5 day experience sailing in the Solent. Based out of Gosport our instructor Nick was very knowledgeable and helpful in all aspects of operating the yacht. Even in windy and unnerving conditions the crew felt safe.

This is a fabulous Sailing School!
With Broad Reach so far I’ve passed my Coastal Skipper, YM Coastal and recently my YM Offshore. Not to mention various training weekends and a Channel crossing. Quality training, a great boat to sail and the foods not bad!
Anyone thinking of starting sailing or progressing their sailing skills, you won’t go wrong using Broad Reach.

Just completed my dayskipper course with Broadreach sailing. Was very nervous at first but the instructor Nick soon made us all feel calm and engaged in the process. It turned out to be a fantastic week. The instruction was brilliant and comprehensive. The food was delicious. The other crew were lovely and the boat was a joy to sail. I can’t recommend this company highly enough.

I did my Competent Crew course with Tony at Broad Reach last summer and, as someone completely new to sailing, found Tony to be a a kind and knowledgeable instructor. I was nervous when I first got on the boat and he did all he could to make the course enjoyable for me.
Fast forward a year and some more miles under my belt, I went back to do my Day Skipper. Tony was very thorough with his teaching and also tailors the course to the students' needs and interests. We visited different places around the Solent - Cowes, Hamble, Beaulieu, Newtown Creek, Yarmouth- which makes for a nice holiday too.
The yacht is comfortable and well maintained and the food is excellent! I'd really recommend Broad Reach and hope to be back for my Coastal Skipper soon.
