Private Sailing

Private Sailing

We can’t guarantee the Dolphins but we do sometimes get lucky, especially in Poole Bay! But we can always deliver a truly memorable experience  – whether its a gentle potter around the Solent visiting some of the historic ports and taverns, exploring the Jurassic coast or a thrash around the buoys, its up to you. Our skippers will work with you to ensure you get the most out of your day afloat, involving you and your guests in as many of the activities required to sail the boat as desired.

We can also configure the boats to adapt to the needs of all ages, reducing the sail area to adjust the motion to suit the less energetic or piling on the sail for more excitement. 

Example Programme for a Private Sailing day from Poole:

0900 hrs Arrive at the Marina on Poole Quay and meet your skipper for a Safety Briefing and coffee on the yacht
0930 hrs Depart for a practice sail in the Harbour. Everyone will be fully involved in steering, sail handling and general teamwork.
1030 hrs Sail out of the harbour into Poole Bay for a cruise along the spectacular Jurassic Dorset Coast. 
1300 hrs Anchor in Studland Bay for lunch and  maybe a swim to look for seahorses! 
1430 hrs Afternoon sailing  to include race practice and/or further exploration giving everyone the chance to steer.
1630 hrs A gentle cruise back in to Poole Harbour to look at the beautiful scenery.
1700 hrs Return to the marina, situated close to a range of pubs and restuarants, to depart at your leisure.

Please note that this is just a suggested programme and can be fully tailored to suit your own requirements.

Hen and Stag Parties welcome.
