Whether you are a first time sailor who has always wanted to venture onto the open seas or if you just want to brush up your sailings skills this full day sailing experience is perfect.
Your skipper will introduce you to the basics and then you will sail for the rest of the day taking turns behind the wheel with the other participants.
This is a great way to enjoy this wonderful sport, on the safe waters of the Solent.
Your experience begins with coffee and a safety briefing, then your RYA Yachtsmaster skipper will introduce you to the basics of sailing. Then it's hands-on sailing for the rest of the day with everyone taking turns behind the wheel, steering the boat out into the Solent and Southampton Water. After a pub lunch ashore (not included in this voucher) alongside a top Marina, you will be able to carry on improving your sailing skills or just sit back and relax in the well protected cockpit. All refreshments afloat are included. Please dress warmly and casually with extra layers. All safety equipment is provided for you. No previous sailing experience is required and non-swimmers are welcome.
The experience lasts from 10:00am to approximately 05:00pm

Great day out I had a great day out on the Solent crossing all the way to Cowes. The instructors were first rate; friendly and confidence inspiring. I would recommend this to anybody. Also it is worth noting that the yacht was much more stable than I had expected, no chance of being sea sick. 17 May 2013
What i thought was going to be a GOOD day out in fact turned out to be an Excellent and exciting day. You are given tuition in the first stages of the morning then its all left to you and the others to sail the yacht under the eye of the instructors 06 July 2012
We live by the sea but don't spend enough time out there appreciating it so I bought my husband a learn to sail day from buyagift with no expectations of what it would be like. He enjoyed himself so much learning how to steer and everything that he wants to join the local sailing club and go on regular pleasure trips so thanks buyagift for introducing us to a new hobby! 16 November 2010
My partner is an avid sailing enthusiast and is always complaining that I never help out enough with the rigging and steering when we're out at sea so I bought myself a hands on sailing day from buyagift and made him wait for me on the shore while I had a whale of a time enjoying the sea views and learning how to sail. Ha ha Derek. Brilliant day! 16 November 2010
