You meet at the Lymington Yacht Haven - which is a little difficult to find, but ask any local and they can help. Matthew the Manager greeted us and told us what we could expect and do during our 6 hour days sailing. The Yacht we had for the day was a Sun Odyssey 45 and suitable for up to... More

In cannot give enough praise for Matthew and he team, we were treated like royalty on our trip. Days prior to travelling we were kept fully updated by Matthew and the team.

This was a birthday present from my wife and a better celebration of my venerable stage of life I could not have wished for. We were lucky in that our four fellow sailors were very good company and the two crew were very nice young men who fitted in perfectly with their six passengers. The weather was dull and overcast...

Spend a lovely afternoon\eve on a yacht. Done it before 3 years ago and loved it so much that we decided to pray for good weather and do it again. Lovely staff and food. Would definitely recommend.

I found this company via a Travelzoo offer as was looking for something a little different to do. The day was booked easily, and the 'team' we're very helpful in what and how the day goes.
