Description
Beloved of yachtsmen, oar enthusiasts and those who would otherwise drown – sailing is right there for you to master.

It seems complicated doesn’t it? Lots of ropes, masts and colourful footwear. But it doesn’t have to be that way. On this basic, introductory course, you’ll be shown the ins and outs of sailing in a relaxed, non-threatening manner.

Before you even see a drop of water, all the basics and safety procedures will be spelled out to you on the terra firma of the dock, over a cup of tea, coffee or melted butter. Then you meet your craft for the day. And it’s not just any old craft. The Clipper 60, Taeping has seen more waves than someone fanatically devoted to the Queen.  This is because this boat-shaped hero has successfully completed four circumnavigations around the world. The whole world! Not World of Leather or Pound World. The actual world. Or the watery parts of it anyway.

During the day, the principles of sailing will be revealed to you wondrously in an informal environment. This is real “hands on” day out with everyone, even you at the back, having a chance to actively crew the yacht, taking a turn at all ship tasks such as steering, clipping sails, working on the foredeck, stroking the ship’s cat and washing the cabin boy.

Ever wanted to sail? Of course you have! I can see it in your eyes. You blue, blue beautiful eyes. Enjoy this excellent introduction to sailing on the Solent.
