Notes:

  • Prices shown are for members and do not usually include mooring fees, fuel and food.
  • Prices are per berth and include skippered boat charter. There may be a damage waiver of up to £100 if the boat is damaged. See Club Crew Conditions. Other costs vary between events. Costs will depend on the number of crew and will be confirmed before you book.
  • Non Members must join BTOSC at time of booking
  • A 50% deposit is needed to reserve a place with the balance due no later than 2 weeks before the event takes place.
  • If there is insufficient interest, and as a result the event is not financially viable two weeks prior to the cruise then it may be cancelled.
  • All events are subject to weather conditions. The Skipper’s decision is final.

The club tries to have as much variety as possible in the sailing programme but we are always looking for new ideas. It only takes five or six people to make a boat viable so if you have an idea for a trip and a few friends to support you, the club will try and arrange a skipper and a boat. We have arranged a few of these trips in the past including some team building events. Give the Cruising Sec a call or approach any Club Officer.

Most of our events take place over a weekend but during the week charter rates are much lower and the waters of the Solent less crowded. A 4/5-day charter also allows for some longer passages. We have included some in the programme this year but if you would like more please contact the Cruising Secretary.
