Owner description: Set sail on the Solent aboard your large luxurious yacht, in the safe hands of your friendly, experienced skipper and crew. Get involved or just sit back and enjoy the view! Relax and unwind on deck in the sunshine. A complimentary glass of bubbly on arrival and a delicious freshly prepared lunch or dinner served at anchor off the Isle of Wight is included. Discover new places, new perspectives and learn how to sail - even swim if you're brave enough! Day (Sail with Lunch) or Evening (Sail with Dinner) trips are available. Great for individuals, couples and groups of family, friends, clients and colleagues!

I bought this trip as a 40th birthday treat for my son and his wife. They said they had a brilliant time. The food was excellent, the experience second to non and, to top it all, the sun shone the whole time. A handy hint for other prospective sailors would be not to forget the sun cream !
A lovely way to spend a day. Many thanks to everyone concerned.

Thank you for taking the time to review this special day out! We are always delighted to welcome guests who are celebrating a special occasion and were so pleased that the weather was so good to them on the day! Not much can beat spending a day relaxing on the Solent with friends and family - especially while the sun is shining! I have passed on your thanks to the team who looked after them so well.

I booked this trip as an experience I could share with my daughter who is very keen on kayaking but had never sailed. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and she was able to fully enjoy being part of the crew. The meal that was provided as part of the package was excellent. Great time had by all.

Thank you for your review. I am delighted that your daughter and you had such a good day out with Escape Yachting! It is a joy to everyone on the team to share our love of sailing with our guests, most of whom have not sailed on a large luxury yacht before. Our skippers are very good at getting you involved with sailing the yacht if you wish - or you can just sit back and enjoy the fresh air, sunshine and the views of the Isle of Wight and the English coast whilst sipping your champagne! We look forward to seeing you on board again before too long!

Thank you for your kind review which sums up so well exactly what we are trying to do at Escape Yachting! There is not much that can beat a magical sail on the Solent - especially in the sunny weather we are enjoying at the moment!

I have just returned from celebrating my 40th birthday with Escape Yachting. It was very well organised with good communication from the staff before the event.They kindly answered all our many questions from a group of non sailors!
We were blessed with beautiful weather on the day and it was wonderful to just sit back and be looked after so well. AS we enjoyed chilled champagne our skipper Nigel and Shani sailed us to a very pretty creek off the Island.The two course meal was very tasty and they made us all feel truely pampered-even putting on music at our request.
Due to our 'excitable' state we did not take part in the sailing but we knew this could of been an option should we have wanted.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to celebrate a special occasion in style-we all could not stop smiling for days!!
