Had a fabulous afternoon's sailing with David and Cyril. It was absolutely brilliant, would recommend it to everyone. David and Cyril could not have been more attentive and provided us with a beautiful meal. Will definitely do it again.

Cap'n Crutch and 5 shipmates set out for a life on the ocean wave from Lymington and Skipper David along with First mate Raphael made sure we did the sailing experience to the max. Ferries and other boats very sensibly gave us a wide berth and we sailed the Solent before mooring for a wonderful evening dinner in early evening... More

This company is amazing - especially if you have had a go in a dinghy as a youngster and how different it is. You can take part, as those who were sailors who did and those who were not and happy to sit and watch the scenery and the sailing. The Commodore made our trip with his stories of all... More

Wonderful afternoon/evening sailing from Lymington with captain Marcus! Great company, delicious food cooked by Cyril! Our choice to relax or help sail the boat.We had such a lovely time and would highly recommend, we knew no one but that didn't matter as we downed our wine and laughed and enjoyed the fresh air!

Excellent as ever, concise, pleasant, informative safety rules from the skipper, fun crew and weather light, but got stronger, with an experienced man on the tiller reaching 11 knots. Fantastic sailing, convivial company (crew and guests), succulent food and drinks. Would strongly recommend to 'old sailors' and newbies. Rick (71 years young)

I booked a solent day trip with Escape Yachting for my husband and I in July. We were very lucky with the weather as it was warm and dry. The trip was fantastic, I would recommend it to anyone and the food was delicious. I wouldn't change a thing.

Having not been on a yacht for more than 30 years I was a little worried I might barf over the side. However, I ended up having a whale of a time (pardon the pun). We were a group of 10, having been invited by a friend who had bought the day out as part of a charity raffle. What... More
