Home is always taken for granted. The Solent's secluded creeks and calm waters are a great place to unwind. With our days out and weekend voyages you can experience discovery and inspiration closer to home.
A Solent sailing experience allows you the pleasure of seeing life from a different angle aboard your own skippered luxury yacht, sailing from Lymington in the New Forest for a Sail with Lunch or a Sail with Dinner . On arrival, you are offered a glass of champagne, before setting sail on the Solent on your large, modern Jeanneau yacht. After two hours' sailing you anchor off the Isle of Wight for a freshly prepared two-course meal, served on deck. Afterwards you sail back to Lymington. This is a great day out for individuals, couples, groups of friends and families, clients and colleagues. If you have eight or more people in your group you can have an exclusive, private yacht to yourselves! Come and celebrate a special occasion (birthday, anniversary) or buy this for someone as a special gift.

"Five of us had a wonderful trip on the Solent with Escape Yachting in August. The advantage of sailing with this company is that the guests are encouraged to participate in the sailing experience. This is entirely up to individuals and in no way an obligation! But it certainly contributed to a great day's sailing and the weather was perfect; the icing on the cake. We can heartily recommend sailing with this professional, but relaxed, team."
You can either leave your crew to do all of the sailing or you can get involved, learning as you sail along. No experience or qualifications are required.
It's all about the little touches with Escape. We provide friendly crew, including a qualified professional skipper, who also act as your personal steward and chef. Who wants to be doing the cooking and washing up while they're on holiday? You've earned the right to relax and spend time enjoying yourself while we take care of all that for you.
Perhaps a little longer is needed to relax. Join us on-board for a weekend or a couple of days mid-week. The choice is yours – where you go, what you eat, what you do.
You can visit pretty harbours at Hamble, Beaulieu or Lymington; maybe you prefer a waterside pub on the Isle of Wight like the charismatic Folly Inn or a stroll around Cowes, home of yachting; even a shopping trip to Gunwharf Quays in historic Portsmouth? You can arrive right on the doorstep by yacht.
You can choose from a wide range of catering options: perhaps you would like champagne on arrival, a four-course lunch and traditional English afternoon tea all provided on board, or a pub lunch ashore. It is up to you!
