Reviews

Weekend bareboat charter around the Solent in February

Overview - Give us a summary of your time with Sunsail?

The sunfast 37's have weathered the years well and provided and excellent caravan for the w/e. We picked up the boat on Thursday evening and settled in very well. The weather was robust for the w/e yet the boat instilled confidence to go sailing

It was all very easy.

She sailed well in heavy weather but also had enough canvas for light airs

The boat was well prepared and the staff well organised so we were able to enjoy the sailing with confidence

A friend of mine and our two 13 year old sons had a great few days sailing in the Solent enjoying everything the area has to offer - great sailing, anchorages, marinas and the sights of the Solent.

Is there anything else you would like to share?

It was a great introduction to cruising for both the boys. My friend's son is now a member of the RYA sailing squad and racing and my son enjoys cruising on the yacht we subsequently bought.

Off Yarmouth IOW on a lovely sunny day with a great sailing breeze and letting the boys take th helm in turn. It was a transforming experience for them.

Extremely easy, relaxed and stress free, just arrive, find allocated boat - off you go sailing. Help is just a phone call away.

There is always someone at the base willing to help, or find someone who can help you. Service is presented with a beaming smile. Thank you.

Port Solent as a location is fantastic as there are a few facilities to keep children occupied before collecting your yacht.

The yachts are a racing cruiser, and offer spinnakers which is unique for most charter companies.

Arrive early, give yourself plenty time to relax after a hard day in the office before loading the yacht and taking off towards the Solent waters to have a fun time using the natural environment to speed along on your Sunsail Yacht.

Approaching the mouth of Portsmouth Harbour, and having all the sails up, turning off the engine and hearing the water roar as we take off by the power of the wind.
