Yacht Sailing – Gosport
Lagoon Watersports are running RYA yacht courses from Gosport in the Solent from November to May. From May to November our yacht courses will be run from Brighton. Although Brighton is a great location for our yacht courses, the coastline is exposed and in the winter and early spring months the weather can be too rough for safe sailing. To avoid course cancellations we are sailing from the Solent for part of the year as the area offers sheltered waters for the more rough weather conditions. The Solent is a mecca for sailing with surroundings steeped in history and natural beauty, with pretty fishing ports, islands and a wealth of activities. On your course you will not only experience an area that is world renowned for its sailing but also fantastic stopovers, pubs and restaurants for aprés sail.Read More...
Gosport Marina is part of Premier Marinas, located at the mouth of Portsmouth Harbour, just minutes from the eastern edge of the cruising grounds of the Solent. Popular with cruisers and racers alike, the marina offers superb facilities and makes a great start point for boating in The Solent. On a day’s cruise from here, you can easily reach Chichester’s natural harbour, visit the famous Isle of Wight yacht havens, or venture further afield to Beaulieu, Lymington or Poole. These trips are perfect for passage planning, tidal work, navigational skills, anchoring and of course sailing, sailing, sailing!

Was most impressed with Will Lowes, the skipper. He had a very relaxed, though efficient and professional, manner and managed extremely well the range of ages and experiences on board. He was upbeat throughout, got everyone working well together and taught extremely effectively. Not only a good sailor, but a good teacher.
The instructors were really helpful and aware of our individual needs. I loved this weekend, I want to do more! Lovely instructors and great fun!
Outstanding course. Content delivered in a efficient, effective and friendly way
Our instructor Jo is brilliant. Excellent teacher. Very knowledgeable and capable. The highlight of the course was the sunrise as we sailed out of Gosport.

Be aware rebooking fees are charged for cancellations made with less than 4 weeks notice.
Our cancellation policy applies in all circumstances including no shows, illness, relocation, transport failure and bereavement.
The reason for this is when you make a booking with us we assign staff and equipment to deliver the booking, we are therefore unable to offer that space to anyone else. We will have made commitments to staff for your booking and we may have turned away other bookings. Unfortunately we are unable to get insurance that covers us for this loss. We therefore do not offer refunds for cancellations as we are likely to incur costs.
