A New Year’s Yacht Sailing Party for all those not wanting to do the ‘usual thing’. Get away on board a yacht among excellent company on the Solent – great for small groups, couples and singles. A fantastic 3 day / 2 nights sailing extravaganza taking in some great places, great sailing and great learning experience on an a cracking patch of water. Why spend a fortune on New Year’s Eve or being at a party where you really don’t want to be? Chill out and have some fun with us over New Year. There will be a great combination of the sailing … and the social!
Some people have asked for an alternative to the usual boring, expensive New Year’s Parties. So this is your chance! Grab a place onboard! Sail during day light hours and do some night sailing and get to understand the night-time navigational challenges and methods we use. We don’t have to sail all night but can get a few hours in because it gets dark early! We teach people the art of sailing if they haven’t sailed before… let people expand upon their knowledge base if they are already sailors… and bring people on. We give everyone the opportunity to be completely involved in the sailing – or if they’d prefer – just chill out.
Once safely tied up for both evenings have a cockpit party with cocktails. Eat aboard to keep the cost down as going out for meals around that time is hellishly expensive – more on the catering later! Explore the local hostelries after dinner as there is plenty of live music available at the local ports… Relax & Enjoy!
It Is Hot.
Firstly – lets get the thought of the cold away from you. We have the most amazingly efficient diesel heating system aboard the boats and when you are in port and tied up alongside we have several blow heaters aboard to supplement the hot air supply! Honestly… we sail all through the winter, on occasions we go across the English Channel to France and the Channel Islands… and though it can be fresh on deck on occasions – down below we are in shorts and tee shirts when the heat is on! We also have what we call ‘Cockpit Tents’ that allow us to completely enclose the cockpit space and use that area effectively if the numbers on one of the boat swells when we are having a ‘social’ once safely tied up ashore. We also supply you with the sailing specialised wet weather gear in case of bad weather – but we will give you a kit list of what to bring with you if you sign up.
We start from Hamble on the Tuesday morning and finish on the Thursday evening back at our home base. Plenty of free parking with on site 24 hr staffing for a comfort feel when leaving your car – or easily accessible by rail. We raft up alongside each other at night and plug into the electric shore-power in the marinas. There are great shower and toilet facilities ashore and also every yacht has its own marine toilet and hot water shower aboard (though it is not quite like the power showers ashore!).
This photo is of December sailing – and I kid you not – Paul was in shorts the next day!
We keep the price down. All meals will be taken aboard to reduce the costs – a huge factor to consider. All breakfasts, snacks, lunches, dinner and the New Year’s Meal are included along with champagne, wine and cocktails on New Year’s Eve.
The New Year’s Eve meal will be a large, high quality affair and is fully supplied! Kicking off with a cockpit party, champagne, cocktails and appetisers followed by scrumptious 4 course dinner all served with appropriate wines followed by coffee, mints and a digestif.
