Day Sails – a family day out, gift or taste of future adventures?

It is no good just talking about ‘learning to sail’ or ‘going to sea on a tall ship’. Sometimes you just have to seize the day and sign up for a nautical adventure. Classic Sailing mostly specialise in sailing holidays where you stay on board overnight and have a chance to really bond as crew and immerse yourself in our world of traditional sailing. When we do offer day sails you can rest assured that we want you to come back for a longer voyage, so the professional crew will be working hard to make the day special so we can get you hooked on sailing and fall in love with our eye catching vessels.

Treat yourself to a day sail or bring the whole family or a bunch of mates for some fresh sea air and a bit of hearty rope pulling. All you have to do is decide whether to sail on a classic tall ship with ratlines to climb and sail setting that requires teams of people, or go for a more intimate experience on our smaller vessels where two or three of you could set a sail in a few minutes and have more time to enjoy the view.
