Cowes Sailing Weekend
Http:// Join me for a fun weekend of Sailing over Cowes weekend. If like me you have only Sailed a couple of times or you've never tried, this is the perfect opportunity for you to have ago. The Yachts come with our own Skipper and its our job as the crew to muck in and help with the ropes and steering if you wish. In addition to the day to day running of the Yacht you'll get to see some of the Cowes Festival, Fireworks and Red Arrows in Cowes on the Friday & Saturday evenings. Rough itinerary will be to meet at Port Solent Marina on Friday afternoon around 4pm head to Cowes around 6pm to watch the Fireworks and Red Arrows from the Yacht or a shore. The Itinerary for Saturday is subject to change weather factors how much Sailing people want to do etc but it maybe possible to sail ton the Needles. Saturday evening in Cowes there are plenty of places to eat and drink plus there will be live music to enjoy. Sunday subject to tides we will head to Bucklers Hard which is a beautiful place with a nice pub. I hope to be able to stop here for 2-3 hrs so we can get off for an early lunch, beer or ice cream before heading back to Port Solent. For your accommodation you will spend two nights on the Beneteau Matched First 40 Yacht based on two people sharing a cabin at a cost of £269per person. The Yachts comprise of two double cabins and two separate Saloon Berths. If you would like the Saloon Berth this can be purchased at £169 You will need to arrange with your crew or individually your meals at the very least you will need food/snacks/drinks for lunches on board. Evenings you have the choice of buying something and having it on the boat or enjoying the local bars and restaurants in Cowes.
