Sail with Lunch or Dinner on the Solent
With our days out on the Solent you experience discovery and inspiration closer to home.
A Solent sailing experience allows you the pleasure of seeing life from a different angle aboard your skippered luxury yacht, sailing from Lymington in the New Forest. On arrival, you are offered a glass of champagne, before setting sail on the Solent on your large, modern yacht. After two hours' sailing you anchor off the Isle of Wight for a freshly prepared two-course meal, served on deck, and the opportunity for a swim! Afterwards there is more sailing as you head 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. Over 3000 guests joined us on board in Summer 2013.

We provide you with a high quality service, using beautiful, large and modern luxury yachts in the Jeanneau fleet from 42 to 50 feet. Your yacht is not only a joy to sail but exceptionally comfortable.
You will appreciate the ease of handling of your yacht. The cockpit features twin steering wheels at the helm, an open-air saloon with comfortable bench seating for entertaining around a generously sized cockpit table, and an additional lounge area below deck for relaxing on board!
"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."
On Board Comfort
You can either leave your crew to do all of the sailing or 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.
Solent Sail and Stay Breaks
Perhaps you need a little longer to relax. Join us on board for a weekend or a couple of days midweek. 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 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!
