Yacht Sailing Trip

A classy and stylish event

This is a classy and stylish event from Brighton Marina aboard our performance yachts. Enjoy a fantastic sailing cruise aboard our yachts along the Brighton coastline. This can be a hands on experience or you can simply choose to kick back and relax with drink in hand whilst viewing the sights of Brighton from the sea. You will start and finish your cruise in Brighton Marina which offers an array of shops, restaurants, bars, a multi complex cinema and even a casino for some après sail and group bonding.

With your skipper you will board the yacht and after a safety briefing head out of Brighton Marina into the big blue. Once past the marina you will set sail along the Brighton coast soaking up the atmosphere of the ocean whilst viewing Brighton and the Sussex coastline. If you want to be an active crew member your skipper will show you how to hoist the sails, trim the main and take the helm – yes, you will be able to steer the yacht!

“Just to say thank you for taking us out on the boat last Wednesday. We had a great time taking in the Brighton coastline, being chased off the windfarm, and learning a bit about sailing. You hosted us very well including keeping us well fed!

Thank you so much to you and your team for being so reactive and organising something so last minute! It seems the group has a great time.”

Pierre Gouverneur

“The yacht trip it was the most perfect evening and the bride was literally speechless. Your skipper and his mate were absolutely amazing and really made it a fun time. Thank you again so much it will never be forgotten.”

Great evening. We spent our last evening in Brighton on this cruise. It was the perfect end of our week. Our captain and his mate were great. We were able to help with the sails.

The superbly situated Malmaison Brighton hotel very close to Lagoon Watersports, boasts lovely bedrooms with a brasserie and sea-views. If you would like a cheaper alternative there are apartments to rent in the marina or B&Bs near to Brighton Marina in Kemptown. Airbnb or bookings.com are good sites to find apartments and B&Bs.

Part of the enjoyment of our activities out on the ocean is being in the elements, so it is important to be versatile to make the best of the conditions. If we cannot run an activity on a day due to weather conditions and high winds we are fortunate that we can move your activity to Hove Lagoon (4 miles away) where our inland lagoon next to the beach will give shelter for an alternative activity. We cannot refund any event unless we cannot offer any alternative activity or find suitable alternative dates.
