We had such an amazing day celebrating our year's anniversary! David and the rest of staff were really friendly and even gave people the opportunity to sail the yacht which my boyfriend particularly loved!! We sailed to the Isle of Wight and had our dinner there which was extremely delicious, I normally do eat fish, however I had the roasted Salmon which was fabulous! Thank you all for the Matthew, David and the rest of the staff for such a lovely experience, we are definitely booking again!

Thanks, Lizzie, for writing such a positive review of your Sail with Dinner to celebrate your special anniversary! What a lovely way to enjoy a day out together and I am so pleased that you both enjoyed yourselves so much on board. We look forward to seeing you on board again soon. Why not come with a group of friends and have a private, exclusive yacht to yourselves next time!

Had a wonderful time with a great crew (Thanks Nigel and David).
The guys were efficient, friendly and ensured we have a great time.. we even managed to take a swim just off the coast of the IOW.
Food was good and when the last man set down to sleep we were thoroughly exhausted.

Highly recommended.

Thanks, Paul, for your excellent review of your great evening on board with your friends during your stag weekend! I am so pleased that you enjoyed yourselves so much on your Sali with Dinner and impressed that you also took a dip in the Solent during your trip while we were anchored off the Isle of Wight! We had a great time with you all on board and we look forward to seeing you again soon - perhaps on an anniversary trip next summer!

We have just had a wonderful evening trip and dinner on board the most beautiful yacht. The crew were very fabulous and very handsome!!! We were all able to take part if we wanted to in handling the boat and to have champagne and dinner alongside the Needles was a truly memorable occasion.
Well done Escape Yachting we will return.

I booked a lunch time sail to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our sail was on the 8 March 2014, it was just the two of us plus David from Escape and we went in an Elan 344 (10m sail yacht).

Just having the two of us on board was amazing, the yacht felt like ours and my husband (who would love to have his own yacht one day) got to ask hundreds of questions and do any part of the sailing he wished. I too had the chance to help but spent most of the time relaxing.

David was really friendly, very knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable. The lunch was superb and we ate in a near deserted bay - light noise from the water, the occasional bird squawking and the sun shining. It was one of the best lunch experiences of my life.

The private hire was such a treat and seeing the huge smile on my husband's face all day is something I will always remember. Saving for our own yacht began today!

Thanks Laura for your excellent review of your lovely day out to celebrate your husband's birthday! We are so pleased that you had such a special experience and that the yacht, the skipper, the lunch and the sailing were all just perfect! It matters a great deal to us that our guests have a memorable, happy and relaxing sailing experience with us and so we are delighted that we achieved that for you. Although you had a private yacht to yourselves this time, do come back with a group of friends and share the experience. It will be good practice for when they all join you on your own yacht one day!

We had a great day celebrating my mums birthday and the crew were fabulous- really friendly and fun. Particularly when my sister went over-board and her shoe had to be rescued! The food was a really high standard and we were very well looked after. Thanks very much!

Thank you for writing such a great review of your day of sailing with your family to celebrate your Mum's birthday! It was a great surprise for her and you had such lovely weather that it really madr the day - as did the moment when your sister stepped off the back of the yacht when we were anchored for lunch! A memorable and and very amusing moment for everyone - even her! I am so pleased that you were so well looked after and will pass on your thanks to the skipper and crew. We look forward to seeing you all on board again for the next family day out!
