6 - 8 October 2017 : Solent Cruising Weekend
Solent Cruising Weekend - 6th-8th October
Please Note: Bookings are now closed for the Crew Development/Skills Builder Solent Weekend. But we are running a cruising weekend – ideal for everyone, especially New Members.
The cost of the weekend is £130pp (plus shared expenses).
A Solent Sailing Weekend is an excellent way to sample the fun and challenges of offshore cruising. The Solent is the home of British Yachting – and offers incredibly varied and sometimes challenging sailing.
We usually start on Friday evening, meeting up at Hamble Point Marina where we board our charter boat. We may have supper at the Ketch Rigger (the pub in the Marina) or at a different pub in Hamble Village.
Saturday morning is likely to start with a cooked breakfast on board and the safety briefing before we set sail. Exactly where we go depends on winds and tides, but there are many options.
We will probably spend the Saturday night in a different marina – often on the Isle of Wight, where it's likely we will sample the local cuisine in a local hostelry.
After breakfast on Sunday, we will set sail again across the Solent, seeing more sights along the way and probably eating lunch on the way back.
We return to Hamble Point Marina at around 4.00pm on Sunday afternoon for a quick tidy-up before we head home.
Your Skipper will be a well-qualified experienced offshore sailor who is a member of Corinthians. He/she will be very happy to share their knowledge and love of sailing. You can get as involved in the sailing as much as you like, and we all help with cooking and clearing up, etc.
Solo sailors, either beginners or experienced are all welcome, but it is likely you will share a cabin with another club member. We do our best to accommodate friend requests, but may need to balance out crew experience etc.
At £130 for the weekend, the club weekends are considerably cheaper than commercial trips. Note: you will also need to pay your share of on board expenses including food, drinks, and fuel and mooring fees.
Please book on line.
