We booked an afternoon sail with dinner and a night on board the yacht. David and Montague were welcoming and took us through the safety procedures which was reassuring as the weather wasn't great. Heavy rain for part of the day and strong winds, which made for exhilarating sailing. This was the end of August!
The other passengers were all ladies so my hubby was out-numbered but everyone was a good laugh and we all got on well - the drinks helped....
The meal was lovely and incredible that it was cooked in such a small galley in not ideal conditions.
We were the only people to stay on board and our cabin was very comfortable. We slept really well. We showered on the boat, though we could have used the more powerful showers in the yacht club if we wished.
We had breakfast in the yacht club and this was lovely too.
We bade our farewells to David and Montague and spent the rest of our time in Lymington and Bucklers Hard an area we hadn't explored before. The sun shone all day and we felt we had been on holiday.
A lovely birthday celebration. Thank you.

Thank you Escape Yachting for the opportunity to sail with you from Lymington to the Isle of Wight on such a comfortable yacht - twice. It was wonderful to experience the different quality of light (and temperature) between a morning and an evening sail. The power of the Solent’s tides amazed me both times.
David and Chris, your calm and competent skippering ensured the trips were an absolute joy. Montague thanks looking after me so well.

We went out with David and Monty and some other lovely people yesterday ...it was sublimely perfect ... and we LOVED it .
David and Monty took great care of us and we had the best of days sailing in Omertà ..a magnificent yacht that calmly took the seas in her stride while we enjoyed our champagne on her beautiful deck... a truly memorable day and we would go again in a heartbeat .

Our hosts, David and Montague looked after us brilliantly, the sun shone, the breezes blew and the Omerta scudded across the Solent to a delightful supper moored up a quiet creek on the Isle of Wight. Then a glorious sail back into the sunset over Lymington. A wonderful celebration for our 70th birthdays. Definitely do it again, even if it was raining!

What a wonderfully relaxing and tranquil afternoon spent on the yacht. We were welcomed with a glass of bubbles or orange and spent the afternoon doing nothing (just what I needed) the weather was fantastic which helped. I was able to swam in the sea which was lovely and to top it off the food was amazing. The staff are very friendly and even allow you to sail the yacht if you want.
The people we met on the yacht were lovely and friendly
All in all a fanastic afternoon out thank you

Everyone got a glass of champagne when on board. It was a beautiful day, and the sea was calm. I enjoy swimming in the Solent sea, it was my first time, so a bit nervous about the current. Wish I swam a bit longer and further away from the yacht. Dinner was good, crew staff were very attentive. The sunset was amazing. I strongly recommend this activity, it is a perfect experience!
