Classic Sailing Holidays, RYA Courses and Skippered Yacht Charter from Hamble in the Solent, on our luxury 55ft Classic Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter - Annabel J

Cornwall, Scilly Isles, Around Britain and Scotland, Brittany, France, the Channel Isles and the Canaries

Classic Sailing Holidays on our Skippered luxury Bristol Pilot Cutter. Based in the Solent, voyages take us along the south coast, the Scilly Isles, the Channel Isles, France, Brittany, Cornwall and Scotland. All voyages are suitable for beginners and experienced sailors alike, and are hands on sailing in the traditional way, but with the modern comforts of a luxury classic yacht.  Ideal for singles, individuals, families and groups.

You do the sailing, and the pace is always tailored to your abilities; consequently, all voyages are suitable for novices as well as the hardened sailors. Our Skipper and crew are very experienced and will instruct you in all aspects of sailing. We have a passion for traditional sailing and aim to provide an enjoyable, rewarding and exciting experience. Annabel J is traditionally rigged so is very much a hands-on adventure. However, there is no pressure if you just want to sit back and enjoy the view!

We specialise in Skippered Sailing holidays for singles, individuals as well as families and groups. Annabel J is also available as a whole boat charter for special events such as Birthdays and Corporate Events.

RYA Courses are available for those who aspire to learn 'the ropes' and gain RYA Qualifications on a traditional vessel. See our sailing schedule for more details.

What an absolutely wonderful 2 weeks - the best holiday I've ever had. Annabel J is a lovely boat and no one would fail to be impressed by her; but more than that, the company was superb and you managed to put together a balanced blend of superb sailing and great trips ashore. I will be back. Diana x
