Community Sailing Trip Across the Channel (La Manche) !

We include you into planning each days itinerary. We are true to a real sailing spirit and plan together with the wind, weather and you! Therefore, please just treat the below itinerary as a general idea. We will customize it to meet your crew wishes and the current weather. Only the mad ones sail against the wind! Day 1: HAMBLE is our host marina and easily accessible by train and road from Southampton Airport or from London. Please allow sufficient time to reach the marina in time to meet the other crew and then we will provision the yacht and set sail!Day 2: ISLE OF WIGHT: Famous as a holiday destination and for its scenic landscapes, the Isle of Wight has also a long maritime tradition. We will stop over in Cowes, famous for the regatta and breathe in the Victorian charm of the island.Day 3: BUCKLERS HARD: To reach Bucklers Hard we will need to sail the picturesque river Beaulieu upstream. The Georgian cottages were built in the 18th century by the second duke of Montagu, as a shipbuilding and trading harbour for the West Indies. Today the estate hosts a maritime museum. In this quiet and scenic place we can stay for our first night either by the pontoon or on a buoy.Day 4: THE NEEDLES: These two sharp chalk stacks are the guardians of the Solent. They are the last landmarks when coming out of the straight and entering the Channel. The Needles lighthouse was built in 1859, and manned until 1992!Day 5: ALDERNEY: The third largest of the Channel Islands, Alderney is a self-governing Crown Dependency with its own parliament. The island is only 6km long, so everything is within walking distance. There are many forts, bunkers and ruins that we can explore!Day 6: GUERNSEY: Guernsey is where we will best feel the culture and singular status of the Channel IslandsDay 7: DIÉLETTE: An old and typical fishing village, this is one of the harbours along the French coast we may stop in.

All the miles sailed, coasts visited, skills gained and time shared with others will make you bond and build relationships. Cherish these, keep in touch and remember that our sailing family is there.
