Solent Sailing Experience
Learn to sail aboard this proven Ocean Race Yacht
Clipper 60s Taeping, Serica and Mermerus have impressive histories, successfully completing four circumnavigations around the world. This day introduces participants to the principles of sailing in a relaxed, informal environment. A real “hands on” day out – everyone has the chance to actively crew the yacht, taking a turn at aspects from steering to working on the foredeck. Throughout the day the professional skipper and mate will be on hand to teach crew members the basics of sailing and talk them through all the manoeuvres.
