South Coast Cruising

Whether you loved your first time Cowes trip or have never sailed on the Solent, soak it all up. These trips are for under 18 and over 18 year olds.

Longer cruising on the Solent

South Coast Cruising gives you the chance to stretch your sea legs further afield than experienced on your first time trip.

Starting from Cowes on the Isle of Wight, you will enjoy a more hands-on sailing experience and muck in with all duties onboard while visiting new places around the Solent.

You might be sailing for longer, but the essence of the first time trips you enjoyed so much is retained. Water fights? Crabbing? Games? Yep, you have still got the lot!

Tadiwa's Story

It's like I have freedom. You don't see that every day in your life, a boat with other people who get you on it.

Being diagnosed with a brain tumour made Tadiwa feel different. A sailing trip helped him feel free, independent, and most importantly, make friends with people who understood him.
