Enjoy a delightful lunch in the riverside coffee shop before hitting the open ocean for a truly unique and magical experience, sailing a historic vessel across the Solent. 120 years old and an authentic and genuine rarity, Valerie is believed to be one of only 12 Stow & Son Yachts to have survived from around 80 built. A true beauty, she has been lovingly restored with Victorian-inspired splendour and boasts sleek decks, wooden spars and a traditional tiller. For four hours, you will have the unique opportunity to be a part of her rich history and with a professional and experienced skipper and mate to guide you, you can have a go at preparing and hoisting the sails, grinding the winches, and even steering the boat yourself! Whether you decide to get fully involved or you prefer to simply relax and enjoy the sea air, this is guaranteed to be a day to remember.
