Isle of Wight Sailing & Charters / Boat Trips

Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week

Isle of Wight sailing is considered some of the best in the world. Take to the seas and leave land behind – you’ll get a different perspective of the stunning coastline of the Island, whilst enjoying the the popular offshore waters of the Channel and the Solent. 

Often known as “the home of yachting”, the Isle of Wight is a sailor’s paradise; with many sailing events and courses running throughout the year, and hidden coves, estuaries and professionally managed harbours alike to discover – making it the ideal destination for a sailing holiday.

It’s easy for sailors of any level to “set sail” from the Isle of Wight. Why not charter a boat with family, friends or colleagues? There’s plenty of opportunity to get as involved as you want to. Or brush up your sailing skills at one of our top yachting and sailing schools. If you already sail, why not come over and moor your own boat in one of our many well run harbours.

We’re world famous for our week long sailing regatta at Cowes Week every August – it’s one of longest running sailing regattas anywhere, why not join in the fun on water or as a spectator on land – there’s always plenty to see and do. Some of the biggest names in world sailing come from / trained on the Isle of Wight!

June sees the epic Round the Island Race where thousands of boats big and small set sail on a course that covers the whole of the Island coastline; participants include locals and celebrities alike. It’s a thrilling voyage and land lubbers have a fantastic choice of view-points across the Island from where they can watch this stunning race.

Those looking for a buzz should book a rib ride from or to the Island; you’re certain to get an adrenaline high! Fynn Marine offer ribs and other sailing on hourly, daily or weekly hires, with other providers offering similar services around the Island.

If you fancy something more relaxed, a boat trip around some of the Island’s coastline is sure to please. From lobster safaris to tours round our iconic Needles, there’s something to entertain the whole family.

The Isle of Wight was made for getting out on the water, so come and join us – we even have our very Festival of the Sea celebrating our maritime connections.
