Relax and enjoy the ride as our qualified and experienced skipper takes responsibility for the yacht. You and your crew can get involved in as much or as little of the sailing as you like.
Our skippers are all commercially endorsed RYA/MCA Offshore Yachtmasters with many being actual instructors.
The skipper can simply be there as a back up in case you get into a situation you feel uncomfortable with or can take on a more instructional and coaching role. If you would like more formal instruction, then we can arrange for the skipper to be an instructor.
You would need to provide food and drink for the skipper along with either a berth on board or accommodation ashore.
If you are struggling to get crew then we have a number of options for you to come sailing with us on an individual berth basis. Your best bet is to have a look at this page - Single Berth Booking .

Waterproof jacket and trousers - £10 a day per set.
Security Deposits - Vary from £1000 to £1500
Fantastic days sailing with friends on a wonderful boat. It certainly helped that we had 3 very experienced sailors with us, would highly recommend Firstaway sailing if you want a day on the water in the Solent.- Clive B
Thanks Sally and Eric for great service and a brilliant day with Firstaway Yacht Charters. Excellent first experience of sailing. Skipper Eric was great and let us all take a turn at the helm. A great way to celebrate special occasions. Boat was clean and well maintained with good facilities too. Would recommend Firstaway to anyone wanting to take a trip sailing.- R & A Jenner
We were 7 onboard this Jeanneau 12.5 m and while there wasn't much wind, with what little there was we managed 7 kts. Cascadeur is a great charter boat - roomy, clean, well equipped. Eric and Sally were very helpful and clearly know their stuff.- Peter R
