Stag Weekends UK Idea.

Plan a unique Stag do or Hen weekend, Saturday night Cowes on the Island

Stag & Hen Dos on 7 or 12 berth sailing yachts.

We have been organising uk sailing stag weekends and hen dos since 2003 and are possibly the most experienced yacht charter company for this type of sailing in the Solent.

Our success is based on our natural enthousiasm for sailing and this usually quickly rubs off on the crew. Plus we are continually innovating and improving the schedules as our experience grows. Each season we introduce some new destinations, small bays and creeks tucked away off the beaten track.

Stag weekends and hen parties are suitable for novice and experienced sailors alike. We use modern sailing yachts and our professional skippers will guide you throughout to get the best from your time on the water and ashore.

Safety is paramount and fortunately despite so many trips over so many years we have never had a serious incident on the yachts. Perhaps this is good luck or is safe sailing no accident? Price guidance can be found here.

Sailing stag weekends are our most popular form of yacht charter. The yacht will provide you with your transport, accommodation, food and sporting thrills. You will love the quaint Solent harbours we visit, rivers with historical significance and mysterious creeks full of wildlife. Then there are the waterside bars and cafes at each of the destinations we visit. We invite you to take the helm, plot the course and trim the sails. Note these are private charters.

What’s the Plan?

Meeting Up Friday Evening

Crews join on Friday evening for yacht handover. The marinas have on-site bars, restaurant, showers and secure car parking.

Saturday Sailing

On Saturday morning, crews usually take advantage of the full english breakfast available shoreside. This is followed on the yachts by a safety briefing plus demonstration of the yachts controls plus mooring equipment. Then it is time to cast off and head down river towards our destination. Routes depend on wind and tide to some degree. We try to go with the tide as far as possible so from Lymington, we may sail out to the Needles and spectacular Alum Bay. In the other direction, the Beaulieu River is a great lunch destination, you will love the Master Builders pub on the banks of the old dockyard at Bucklers Hard. Or it may be possible to sail as far as Wootten Creek.

When several yachts are involved on stag weekends, we will organise a series of short fun races around the racing marks used for the Cowes Week regatta. This usually produces some interesting banter once the crews are back ashore in the bar.

Saturday Evening

The most popular Saturday overnight venue is Cowes on the Isle of Wight where we aim to arrive around 5pm. Here you will be berthed in the main marina immediately adjacent to the lively high street. There is quality live music in several of the bars.


On Sunday there is the opportunity to visit some of the beauty spots overlooked the day before. Newtown Creek and Osbourne Bay are favorites. Departures from Hamble follow similar routes but being more central in the Solent may also take in Portsmouth Harbour.



Plan a unique birthday experience with up to 13 people, going on a route of your choosing!
