“Perfect present!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We were given this by our children as our joint 50 th birthday present and I must say it was the perfect gift. The whole day was wonderful, lovely lunch with a swim watch by a friendly seal. Weather was beautiful on the sail before lunch but a sudden storm hit on the way back which actually made for exciting sailing. We felt save in the hands of David and Rafiel and would like to book again, this time for the whole family.

“Return visit even better ”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Another brilliant day in great company in the capable hands of Nigel! We were glad we caught the last day of cowes week and we even saw a seal. The lunch was delicious and the service we received was first class. We even took the helm, very exhilarating day with our fellow sailors who were all lovely we had a good laugh and will definitely return next year probably bring more friends and hire a full yacht the sail with Michelin chef onboard looks lovely! Don't miss out on such a brilliant day

This was my birthday present and was absolutely fantastic. The weather was kind, the food was excellent and the crew went out of their way to make it a great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and in particular brushing up our competent crew skills.

“Fantastic day out”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We managed to get a last minute cancellation with Escape and on the last day of Cowes week! My husband and I, plus 8 other people had a fantastic day's sailing. Good wind at about 20 knots, so quite exhilarating and fun. David the skipper and Rafael were brilliant and very friednly. Everyone was asked if they wanted to helm or crew and several people had a go. We anchored at Newtown Creek for lunch where we saw a seal basking in the sunshine. The lunch was excellent and plentiful and we had a bottle of local wine which was very reasonably priced. We will definitely do this again as we thoroughly enjoyed the experience, thank you.

“Great day out!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Thankyou to the Captain and Rafael for a great day out sailing on The Solent. There was only one thing lacking and that was 'wind' !! That's the only thing that Escape Yachting can't rely on! There was plenty to eat and drink....alcoholic and non alcoholic. Good lunch anchored in a calm Alum Bay. I'm sure the sea was warm enough for a swim but I'm afraid it has too be a bit warmer for me!
I feel sorry for you all tonight as you head up to watch the Fireworks and Red Arrows in Cowes in the rain. Good luck!
We will return sometime soon. Thankyou.
