Experience sailing for the first time aboard the Clipper 60 Taeping. With the wind in your hair and the sun on your face, you’ll be aboard a 60ft Ocean Race Yacht with an impressive pedigree. This proven boat has sailed around the world four times, crewed by amateur sailors yet it is the perfect yacht for beginners. Under the guidance of an experienced skipper and mate, everyone has the opportunity to be an active member of the crew for a day and try out all aspects of sailing, from taking the wheel of Taeping as she speeds through the Solent, to working on the foredeck for sail changes. It’s the perfect hands on introduction to sailing but also suitable for those who just need reminding of how wonderful life on deck is.

Your day will begin as you meet the crew for your first cuppa at 10.00 before heading down to the pontoons to board Taeping. A professional crew will then introduce you to the yacht and give a short safety briefing before slipping lines and motoring out of the river to the Solent. Then you will help hoist the sails and get your first taste of sailing, as Taeping starts to move under wind power alone. This is a hands on experience, so you will be actively involved in sailing Taeping throughout the day. There is an opportunity for everyone to take the wheel and steer the yacht and when not steering there are plenty of other important jobs on board to keep you busy as you become a valuable member of the crew aboard this 60ft Ocean Race Yacht for the day. The focus of the trip is learning through doing and the professional crew will introduce you to sailing in a relaxed, informal environment. A baguette lunch is served under sail before returning to the Marina in Hamble at approximately 16.00.
