Safe sailing introduction for all types under the expert tutelage of Matthew, David & George. Landlubbers were nervous but everyone came away singing the praises of their time on board. Anchoring for a nice lunch in a scenic Vectis creek allowed time for calm reflection before taking the wheel with a Force 5 blowing! Our chairman, Andrew, even got forward... More

Our sailing trip on the Solent was a wedding anniversary present and it was a fantastic day out. We were on a mid-week, morning sailing which was very well organised, with professional service throughout. After a couple of hours sailing in the Solent - fortunately in good weather conditions - we stopped for lunch at Newtown Creek on the Isle... More

This trip is fantastic. I was apprehensive about it, in that I wasn't sure how hand on or hands off it would be regarding the sailing, and of course no-one could guarantee good company. I needn't have worried. David and his crew made it clear from the start that we could have as much or as little involvement with the... More

I organised a day's sailing for some of my team and customers. Hugely successful in every way! The meeting venue at the marina was excellent allowing us to enjoy a decent breakfast before we set off. We had 2 yachts, both fantastic, lots of room with great crew who were very knowledgeable and couldn't have been more helpful to make... More

We were given this by our children as our joint 50 th birthday present and I must say it was the perfect gift. The whole day was wonderful, lovely lunch with a swim watch by a friendly seal. Weather was beautiful on the sail before lunch but a sudden storm hit on the way back which actually made for exciting... More

This was my birthday present and was absolutely fantastic. The weather was kind, the food was excellent and the crew went out of their way to make it a great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and in particular brushing up our competent crew skills.

Thankyou to the Captain and Rafael for a great day out sailing on The Solent. There was only one thing lacking and that was 'wind' !! That's the only thing that Escape Yachting can't rely on! There was plenty to eat and drink....alcoholic and non alcoholic. Good lunch anchored in a calm Alum Bay. I'm sure the sea was warm... More
