Sailing experiences, Brighton & the Hamble - experiences on the sea!

If you're looking for a gift idea for someone who enjoys being on or near the water and who loves being outdoors, then how about giving them a sailing experience from Brighton or in the Hamble?

With the sea wind in your hair, the fresh sea air in your lungs, and the sight of England's south coast in view, you can learn a new skill, pick out the landmarks you recognise and do something completely different.  On a boat you can really escape from it all and do something different! 

There are some great gift ideas, from yachting sailing evenings to half days;  and Virgin Experience Days now even offer a night on a boat in West Sussex!  With all experiences, please note the Need to Know (for Virgin Experience Days) or Key Info for Red Letter Days which have info on accessibility, availability, weather, numbers, dress code, spectators and more

Go out sailing with a sailing experience on the south coast of England

Enjoy a Yacht Sailing Evening for Two 

This 2 hour experience could be the perfect end to a romantic day or the start of a romantic evening!   There's a safety briefing first on the Sigma 26th performance yacht, and you'll be given official sailing gear and lifejacket.   You can take the wheel or just sit back and enjoy the water and views of Brighton & Hove with your fellow crew members. 

Light refreshments are provided during the sail.  When you get back to dry land, logbooks can be signed off if you want to take your sailing further.  All for £169 instead of £199, as this website is part of the Animal Human Wellbeing family so you get 15% off!
