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 blue 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.”

Amy Thompson

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.

Yacht sailing is on bigger sailing yacht and requires different more intensive training, such as; RYA Competent Crew and RYA Dayskipper.
