14 - 16 September

New Members/Bart's Bash - Solent Cruising Weekend – 14th – 16th September

Take advantage of the end of Summer – warm seas and hopefully warm weather – so join us for another Solent Cruising weekend - ideal for everyone, and New Members are especially welcome.

This is a special weekend as there will be 1000's of races going on all around the world to commemorate Andrew 'Bart' Simpson, a double Olympic medallist who tragically lost his life whilst training for the America's Cup in 2013.


Subject to enough boats taking part, we will arrange an informal race – no previous racing experience necessary.

The cost of the weekend is £160pp (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 an experienced Offshore sailor who is a member of Corinthians. Whilst not a qualified Instructor, they 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 £160 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.
