This was a last minute arrangement for a 40th birthday day out. We were problematic customers due to an injury but the staff were excellent throughout and nothing was too much trouble. When on board, the crew were informative, helpful and very pleasant. The experience itself was wonderful, the good weather obviously helped but being allowed to do as much... More

Escape Yachting were fantastic from start to finish. Every enquiry whilst booking was rapidly responded to. Our skipper David and crew Tim were helpful and attentive throughout the whole experience. There is no pressure to do anything except relax and enjoy, however, you are welcomed to steer and can help with the sails etc if you want too. The weather... More

What a wonderful day last Sunday! We were two families together (9 of us) and the crew ensured we had a fantastic (and relaxing!) experience of sailing. They allowed everyone to take control and were incredibly calm and welcoming when the 4 boys (aged 10 and 8) wanted to steer for most of the time. It was lovely when we... More

Matthew and his team stepped in when our original hen weekend plans went pear shaped back at the beginning of the year. Every single email I sent was answered within 24 hours, and Matthew was the most helpful and considerate host. Our trip on the 'sail with lunch' was perfect in every way. We were welcomed aboard by David and... More

Had a really great afternoon/evening out on The Solent in very good conditions - enough sun and warmth but also enough wind (Force 4/5) to make it exciting. We were a group of 2 couples and had another group of 3 couples who were great fun too. We were excellently looked after by Skipper Nigel and '1st Officer Harry'. Harry... More

There are some things you do that really will keep you smiling when you think back on it. I assure you, this is one of them. Now, obviously the weather helps, our day was just about perfect for sailing, sun, scattered clouds and wind, not too much, just enough to make it 'interesting' and throw the odd wave over the...
