About Alistair Ghinn & Solent Sailing Days

As a keen Sailor for over 30 years, it’s a pleasure to help others get afloat to also enjoy this beautiful part of the South Coast.

Chichester Harbour is an 'area of outstanding natural beauty' plus there's many other special creeks and inlets in the Solent. 

While I absolutely love sailing and just being afloat, I like to think of myself as a facilitator in sharing this opportunity with as many as possible. 

To this end, I offer PEARL a 'Southerly 105' 35ft Sailing Cruiser for Skippered Charter in the Solent. 

PEARL is an 8 berth sailing cruiser,  well equipped with all the essentials. She's a great for the shallow waters of Chichester harbour and sails very well too. 

PEARL'S home mooring is at Dell Quay, in Chichester Harbour although I can receive guests at either at Itchenor Public Pontoon or Chichester Marina if you prefer being based there with all their facilities and the ease of stepping on and off.

Their website is here

The coding / licence for PEARL is limited to 6 persons and for use in the Solent waters which includes Chichester Harbour and all the other inlets between the Isle of Wight and the Mainland.

To be more precise, the coding states inside the IOW within an area bounded by lines drawn between the church spire, West Wittering, to Trinity Church, Bembridge, to the eastward and the Needles and Hurst Point to the westward.

No alcohol is permitted on board during a charter.



As we're all too aware, the English weather is very variable, and the summer can be very disappointing. So to this end I offer a 'Good Weather Pledge' that if the forecast for your booking is Force 6 and above, or if it's just bad weather you may reschedule your booking to another available date at no extra charge.  The bottom line is I hope your time with Solent Sailing Days is a very positive one, although we have to accept we can't do much about the weather. :) 

Please see the 'Tariff and Options' page for more details which includes

the option to join others aboard Pearl as an individual or as a partial group.

Prices start at £55 per person!


In addition I also offer support services to other boat owners in Chichester Harbour: 

This can include training in seamanship and boat handling, sailing tuition, local knowledge plus

advice and support on purchasing, selling, maintenance, refurbishment and moorings.

The hourly rates are also on the 'Tariff and Options' page found on the top menu.
