We did the Solent day out twice in the summer. It's a lovely relaxing day. David was skipper both times and he will encourage you to steer if you want to, or relax if you prefer that. The food is very nice and wine can be ordered as well. Sailing, food and wine - what more could you want?

A lovely lunch and knowledgeable skipper made for a great day. I sat back and enjoyed the sunshine but everyone was invited to get involved should they want to. Jess and Monty were friendly and helpful as well as very professional. We stayed outside as the weather was glorious though you could sit inside if you wish to.

We had a lovely day out with Escape Yachting. 10 on our yacht looked after by David and Oscar. We were lucky with the weather but wind didn't pick up until on the way back so only about 35mins of good sailing. Met at 9am.....left harbour at 0945 after safety briefing and introduction. Champagne offered whilst leaving the harbour followed... More

Thank you for your review of your great day out on the Solent. I hope we are not only getting 4 out of 5 stars because of the wind - as that is not something we have any control over! It sounds like the wind did pick up in the afternoon and you had a good sail back to Lymington... More
