We had an amazing morning of sailing, with a fabulous lunch in Newtown Creek on the Isle of Wight, and really good sail back. David (skipper) and crew were polite and helpful with a sense of humour. I would highly recommend this trip.

What a super afternoon out Sailing from Lymington to IOW with Escape Yachting. The weather was good, the sea calm but with sufficient wind to have a great experience.

Organised almost to military standards as smooth as a Swiss watch. Captain David and crew Sam looked after us with practiced professionalism. It was obvious David knew his stuff but he managed to issue instructions or commentary using non-nautical terms and even the odd joke...More
