Came as a package on Secret Escapes to include a stay in The Thatched Cottage Hotel in Brockenhurst. Great day, lovely food, gorgeous yacht, crew were great. Would love to go again but maybe with them in The Bahamas or Croatia.

You may have read my review of our sailing holiday and wedding trip last year.

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?
