Throughout the experience a professional skipper and crew are on hand to ensure everyone gets the most out of their day. With a choice of vessels, this gift offers the recipient the option to sail on Whitbread 60 Blueprint midweek or Clipper 60 Taeping at weekends.

Amazing day out at sea I bought this present for my boyfriend's birthday and we had an amazing day sailing. The crew were really experienced and informed and helped us to experience a real day of sailing. We started with a safety briefing and tour of the boat and then got involved in all aspects of the sailing from putting the sails up through to all the changes needed to keep the boat sailing at 12 knots an hour. We had an amazing clear day with strong winds, perfect for sailing. We arrived back to shore late afternoon, exhausted but exhilarated from a great day and I would highly recommend this for an active and unusual day out. 06 August 2012

Wonderful absolutely amazing. I was given this as a birthday present and it couldn't have been a better gift. I have always wanted to try sailing and this experience gave me that chance. It is a different world out there and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was just so stimulating. The crew were very professional helpful and informative. I recommend this to anyone who has an interest in sailing or is unsure of it. It's just fantastic. 16 November 2010
