Cross Channel & West Country Yacht Cruise

Cherbourg

Cherbourg in France

Cruise to France, Channel Islands or West Country from £449pp (3 days)
A cross channel yacht cruise or ‘channel hop’ allows you to explore the delights of France, Normandy, the Channel Isles or cruise to the beautiful West Country by yacht. Obtain that all important mile-building with a distance cruise for the logbook, experience crossing the channel, build valuable day and night sailing experience, make foreign landfalls and of course… sample the rich delights of the culture, cuisine and wine! Treat yourself to a sailing holiday.
If, for some reason, weather means that we cannot go cross channel – we will make the best of the available cruising grounds from Chichester to Weymouth and go west beyond.

You will have the opportunity to take part in navigation and pilotage and thoroughly test your knowledge and sailing skills – all under the expert guidance of our professional Skippers.
Cruises generally will take place on board one of our excellently equipped 9 berth, 3 double cabin Jeanneau 37 with heating, equipped with radar, plotter repeater and auto-helm.

  • 2018 The Jurassic Coast 3 day cruise goes West out of the Solent past the Iconic Needles landmark off the Isle of Wight to Poole and the gorgeous sandy National Trust owned  Studland Bay (great for swimming) with its famous Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site white cliffs at Old Harry Rocks. If conditions allow we can continue further West past St Alban’s Head navigating around the potential overfalls, possibly stopping off for a lunch stop in the dramatic Chapmans Pool. Further along the spectacular undulating fossil rich coastline you go past Lulworth Cove towards Weymouth.  If we go past Poole we can moor either up the river at the Town Quay in Weymouth or possibly in the modern Portland Harbour Marina just North of Portland Bill. There is fantastic locally caught fish and  seafood at numerous restaurants and we eat out on one evening ashore. Depending upon the prevailing conditions we can sometimes return south of the Isle of Wight returning into the Eastern Solent.
