XCS18 Cross Channel Sailex - A one week Sailex to France and/or the Channel Islands - Lead Skipper Andy McWilliam
We have chartered two Oceanis 38's from Fairview Sailing and will seek to add a further yacht should there be sufficient demand. Plans are at an early stage but don't let that deter you, sign up and chip in with your ideas for this event.
The aim of this trip will be to cross the Channel from Port Hamble to France or the Channel Islands and explore the area before returning to the Solent. Possible islands to visit include - Alderney, Guernsey, Sark, Jersey and Herm. This expedition will give those aspiring to RYA Yachtmaster Practical Courses the possibility of qualifying passages.With strong tides, challenging navigation and exciting sailing, a trip to these beautiful islands is one not to be missed! Areas like the “Alderney Race” and “The Swinge” offer opportunities for some of the fastest SOG you will experience on a Yacht.
The Lead Skipper will be Andy McWilliam and costs for this Sailex will be £400 per berth based on a crew of 5 for each yacht. As of January 2018 this event is fully booked although we do have another Solent event available in June - The South Coast Jaunt that still has one berth available.
