Solent Skippered Yacht Charter - Sailing Breaks, Holidays
Buster Nixon – Yachtforce Skipper Teaching Lorna

Solent Skippered Yacht Charter – Sailing Breaks, Weekends & Holidays are fantastic fun for the family or friends. Taking a yacht charter with your own Skipper (Captain) or Instructor is excellent for flotilla training, improving sailing skills, building boat handling confidence and specific skills or drills training for yourself, family, children and friends. Skippered yacht charter is a fantastic, flexible way to learn new skills and tricks of the trade or to simply take a family sailing holiday, kick back and relax.

Skippered Yacht Charter is allowed for a maximum of 5 clients + Skipper – no matter if you are a beginner, Day Skipper or Coastal Skipper wanting to brush up on some yacht sailing skills, if you opt for ‘skippered yacht charter’ and take your own private yacht Skipper you can dictate your own itinerary, exactly where you go and what you want to learn – but with someone else to take overall responsibility of your voyage and teach you along the way. Our very friendly and patient yacht Skippers are all commercially endorsed by the MCA ensuring they have all the qualities and skills to make your yacht charter memorable and enjoyable.

If you want a less formalised approach and just need a helping hand and guidance – no problem.
Speak to us with regards your requirements, what size boat you think you would require, how many berths, how long a charter and what you wish to get from the experience. We run chilled out skippered charter weekends, week long explorations, ‘kick back and relax’ style family yacht holidays plus intensive sailing skills and drills sessions.
