I booked a lunch time sail to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our sail was on the 8 March 2014, it was just the two of us plus David from Escape and we went in an Elan 344 (10m sail yacht). Just having the two of us on board was amazing, the yacht felt like ours and my husband (who would... More

We had a great day celebrating my mums birthday and the crew were fabulous- really friendly and fun. Particularly when my sister went over-board and her shoe had to be rescued! The food was a really high standard and we were very well looked after. Thanks very much!

A perfect days sail in early July 2013 in what was picture perfect weather and with a great bunch of people, in all there were 11 of us and the day couldn’t have been handled better with David, the skipper really just being in the background and helping us all to set course and give gentle instructions.

We sailed across to a nature reserve on the Isle of Wight which was a stunning location and enjoyed a really delicious two course dinner and champagne that... More

Organised this as a surprise for my husband's birthday last weekend and it was a roaring success. 7 of us in total on an immaculate 45 foot Bavaria yacht.

My husband and I had an absolutely lovely time on Saturday on board the yacht. I don't think we could have chosen a nicer day for it- the whole year. It was sunny, so very pleasant, but there was also enough wind to enable us to hoist the sails. I mainly sat back and relaxed with a glass of wine,... More
