This is a bareboat yacht charter without a skipper, so you’ll need to be at least RYA Day Skipper practical qualified. We don’t provide food so you’ll need to provision the boat yourself. We do however include the following:

  • Yacht hire
  • Accommodation on board
  • Cooking gas
  • Electric in marinas
  • Wet weather kit hire (not footwear)
  • Hire of a Baltic automatic life jacket

Who is this for:

A great week/weekend for those who want to do some sailing with likeminded fellow sailors without the associated cost of taking out a full charter yourself. Enjoy the time afloat and have some fun without the big expense.

What we cover:

You’ll get to plan out some great passages with your fellow sailors, and just enjoy some time afloat, relaxing and having fun. We don’t provide an instructor or skipper for the share-a-yacht-charter events, so you’ll already be an RYA Day Skipper practical qualified sailor or above.

Starts from our Gosport marina base and visits various ports and marinas further afield.

Our Principal says this about the share-a-yacht-charter events:

What better a way to celebrate that new RYA Day Skipper qualification than with a shared yacht charter week/weekend aboard one of our fleet yachts!

A great way to build extra mileage and enjoy some longer passages to locations further afield than the Solent, it’s all up to you and your fellow sailors as to where you want to go!

You’ll get to see first hand why the south coast is the perfect place to build some miles and gain more experience.

With so many locations to chose from (weather dependant of course) you might go and see Portland or Weymouth, or how about metropolitan Brighton Marina or even Cherbourg and the Channel Islands for a great night out when you arrive? A great way to build experience and also have a great holiday without the expense!
