Solent Day Sailing - Open To All - From Just £99

Solent Boat Charters runs  Solent day sailings from our central Southampton marina base at Saxon Wharf and Lymington Yacht Haven marina in the western Solent. With free parking on site included, these day sails are perfect for all, even for those with no sailing experience. Unlike other operators, our day sailings are a full day, approximately 9am to 5pm.


Full waterproofs & life jackets are always provided, so just come in sensible footwear and we will do the rest. Tea, coffee and soft drinks are always included, but you will need to bring along your own lunch.


Your professional skipper will take you on a tour of the Solent on one of our Bavaria yachts.  The skipper will help you to be as active as you wish in the sailing of the yacht.  We encourage everyone to get involved, but if you would rather sit back and just enjoy the view, then that`s fine.


Many of our guests use these days to sharpen their skills or introduce friends to the world of sailing. We list these days on our training calendar, but they are very simple sailing days, not a formal course and open to all.

Booking A Solent Day Sail


So it`s simple, open our booking calendar via the link below and look for our Solent Sailing Days costing from just £99 per person. Be careful it`s the yacht you want and where it is based, Southampton or Lymington.

The day starts at our private marina in Saxon Wharf or Lymington Yacht Haven depending on the yacht you have booked.

So be with us by 9.00am or you will miss the boat, literally. Eat your lunch at anchor somewhere in the Solent taken on board and returning at about 5.00 pm. Minimum age 18 or 12 with accompanying adult.

Please feel free to bring a small amount of alcoholic refreshment with you, but know that you will not be able to take part in the sailing of the yacht once you have consumed any alcohol, but sit back and enjoy the sail. These events run from March to October each year. Lunch not included.
