“silence was golden!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This was a last minute arrangement for a 40th birthday day out. We were problematic customers due to an injury but the staff were excellent throughout and nothing was too much trouble. When on board, the crew were informative, helpful and very pleasant. The experience itself was wonderful, the good weather obviously helped but being allowed to do as much or as little as you wanted on the boat meant that everyone was able to enjoy themselves and the outstanding memory for me will be the lack of noise when the sails went up and the engine went off and we sailed off into the Solent! A day out that I can't wait to repeat. Thankyou.

“When can i go back?”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Escape Yachting were fantastic from start to finish. Every enquiry whilst booking was rapidly responded to. Our skipper David and crew Tim were helpful and attentive throughout the whole experience. There is no pressure to do anything except relax and enjoy, however, you are welcomed to steer and can help with the sails etc if you want too. The weather was great on our day which allowed us to swim off the boat during the dinner stop (swimming platform and warm shower on the back). We took our own drinks (beers/wines)for the day and this is fine
with them (no hidden high prices once you are captive on board). The meal was cooked fresh and very tasty. All in all a brilliant day out and certainly great value for money Cannot recommend highly enough and will certainly be looking to do it again..
