We can tailor your trip to your requirements, you might like a cross channel trip to France?

General Cruise Details

Join Our Lizzie for a graceful journey exploring the vibrant and historic Solent. Navigate these sheltered waters to the beautiful towns of Cowes, Yarmouth, Lymington, or for tranquility and the beauty of nature, try the Beaulieu River.

 The destinations we visit are largely up to you and what you would prefer, subject to factors like the tide. Our Lizzie’s Crew are there to tailor your experience to you for maximum enjoyment. 

 With more time, we can explore a wider range of places and create a custom itinerary just for you, depending on weather and tides. Our usual destinations stretch from Littlehampton to Weymouth, with plenty in between. On longer journeys, we can venture to Brixham, Dartmouth, or Torquay, if time and weather permits. 

 For cross-channel trips, it’s helpful to discuss preferences beforehand, especially for passport information. When the weather is known it is possible to create a plan at the last minute. We are flexible, though we recommend prior sailing experience for cross-channel trips.

 Our Lizzie is a classic gaff ketch and was built for downwind sailing…. it’s much more comfortable that way; sometimes it’s nice to let the weather decide where we go!

 It’s your experience, so your choice.

 Rest assured, wherever we sail, your safety, comfort, and enjoyment are our top priorities.

General Itinerary

Arrive at 8 – 9.00am on the morning of your charter.

(We can accommodate you arriving the night before most trips if it suits you better. Just let us know, and we’ll do our best to make it happen at no extra charge)

After a briefing with tea / coffee and a hot roll, croissants etc we finalise our destination if not already done and get underway.

There are hot drinks (or cold ones) snacks or lunch to enjoy on the way. We normally pull into a destination for the evening where you can eat out or have dinner onboard.

After enjoying the evening and a good night’s sleep there is a choice of breakfast the next morning before we sail again.

We aim to get back at 4 or 5pm on the last day of your journey, giving you time to pack, enjoy a leisurely final drink and then depart.

Don’t worry – we do all the cleaning and tidying up after your trip!
