Solent Evening Sail August 2


A fantastic chance to get out on the water on a Friday evening for a fun and social evening sail. Leaving from Gosport at 6.15pm, returning by 9.00pm, depart by 10pm. Advance booking and payment of £40 is required, which includes a light meal and drinks onboard.

No previous experience is necessary for these evening sails. You will be given a chance to get involved in different crew tasks, including helming if you want to, or can just sit back and enjoy being on the water. They will be social relaxed circular sails, intended to make the most of the lighter evenings, and you are welcome to come on your own or with a friend. They will start and finish at Haslar Marina in Gosport. The skipper will be a SheSails member with RYA Day Skipper qualification or above.

There will be between 7 and 10 people on the boat, with the boat size dependent on the number booking but likely to be 33-40ft. We charter the boats from a Sea School based in Haslar and will only confirm the booking once the money has been collected from all participants to cover the charter costs.

When you RSVP this is taken as a firm commitment that you want to attend this activity. Please ensure you provide your full contact details when you RSVP then respond promptly to emails requesting payment.

Full joining details and guidance on what to bring/wear/expect etc will be provided once you have paid, but if you are new to sailing and have any questions please do message the organiser before or after booking.

If the Meetup is shown as full please put yourself on the waitlist and look out for messages. We will consider running two boats if there are enough people and we also do occasionally get cancellations.

Getting into Gosport on a Friday night by car is very busy, so if you are driving you definitely need to allow extra time or alternatively come over on the foot ferry from Portsmouth Harbour (next to the train station) and it is a 10 minute walk to Haslar marina.
