Sail the harbours and bays of the Solent, experiencing the perfect mix of adventure, culture, and relaxation with Venture Sailing. The beauty of our sailing weekends is that we provide a mini adventure in an unusual environment that appeal to both sailors and to those who are newcomers to living on a boat. There are so many experiences thrown in that they always feel like you have been away for more than a few days.All you need to do is book and turn up with enough clothing for an active outdoor weekend and a sleeping bag.

Organising a truly memorable weekend can be a tricky task, so why not leave it all to us and we’ll ensure you and your friends have a weekend they’ll never forget.

It doesn’t matter whether your friends are seasoned sailors or total yachting novices, this is a great opportunity to do something new and different and get spoilt rotten along the way

You will be involved ‘hands-on’ from the beginning and might even find yourself helming the boat down the Solent.

Sample Itinerary:
Friday – Meet the yacht at your chosen meeting point and after settling in to the yacht its time to explore some of the many bars and restaurants.

Saturday – Set sail for the day to the Isle of Wight your skipper will be happy to teach you all the basics of sailing a yacht or let you relax in the sun, maybe drop anchor in one of the many bays around the Solent for a spot of lunch & plenty of time for a swim off the back of the yacht.

Saturday Night – We will be tied up in Cowes with plenty of time to sample the nightlife with great restaurants to chose from and many bars playing live music.

Sunday – After a leisurely breakfast we will be setting sail back across the solent with a day sailing exploring the solent. We will aim to back on the dock early afternoon.
