£480 pricing info ›
Newtown Isle of Wight

A more relaxed full-day of sailing, typically attractive to a family group, which could include enjoying lunch at anchor.

The Solent boasts many idyllic anchorages to choose from, either eating lunch on board, or accessing some delightful pubs and cafes using the tender to row ashore.  Examples include, Alum Bay, Totland Bay, possibly including the Waterfront restaurant, Newtown Creek, with the New Inn (consistently voted Isle of Wight Dining Pub of the Year) as an enticing possibility, Osborne Bay, Queen Victoria’s former private beach and, last but not least, Priory Bay, with the option of going ashore for lunch in style at the Priory Bay Hotel.
