Help secure the future of Escape Yachting during COVID19 by supporting us with the purchase of gift vouchers for our day trips and holidays.

New stretch target

Our target will enable us to invest in our committed staff, skippers and crew, by providing guaranteed employment this year and next year at a time when the visitor economy will be recovering from the effects of lockdown during COVID-19.


COVID-19 has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses - particularly for small tourism businesses during this period when travel is restricted. However, with your help, Escape Yachting can sail into a bright future.

Crowdfunder are offering up their platform to allow all UK small businesses to pre-sell their events for cash now on a promise to redeem these at a later date, when this crisis is all over.

Solent Local Enterprise Partnership is offering to match fund £ for £ with a grant the money raised by this appeal. So when you spend on a voucher with Escape Yachting, we will receive this grant. This is a fantastic offer, so please help us to achieve our target!

Please support our small business so we can support our committed staff, skippers and crew, by buying a voucher for use on our sailing day trips on the Solent or on one of our wonderful all-inclusive sailing holidays in the Caribbean, Croatia, Canada or anywhere else!

We are making those vouchers as flexible as possible by setting a 18 month expiry from the date of purchase, so there is plenty of time for to you to come to visit and enjoy yourselves on a day trip or a sailing holiday this Summer 2020 or next Summer 2021.

WHAT MAKES ESCAPE SO SPECIAL?

The clue is in our name! We founded Escape Yachting because we thought that the big, commercial charter and cruise companies were out of touch with what you want. They push lengthy courses, tiring racing days, exhausting team-building and expensive packages. With us you escape the ordinary, with relaxation, flexibility and a friendly experience for people of all ages in safety and comfort. You can be confident, from our excellent reviews and awards, that we are all about top-rated personalised service and attention to detail.

We have worked so hard to build up our small business over the past 10 years, only to have everything threatened by this crisis, during which we are temporarily closed. We can't wait to be open again and to take our lovely guests sailing and to be able to support our wonderful hard-working crew!

Thank you so much for your support.
