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 sailing 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. 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

This experience is available at Hampshire:

My mother and father are considering buying a houseboat after they retire and I thought that a hands on day of sailing would allow them to experience sailing a boat themselves before they committed to anything! I bought them this buyagift experience for their 30th wedding anniversary and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves learning how to steer the boat etc. Looks like now they are certain about getting their own one! 16 November 2010
I took my wife on your hands on sailing day as a surprise anniversary present. We were completely new to sailing so enjoyed having other participants around us learning to steer and hoist at the same time! 16 November 2010
