If the weather forecast is foul, or the Met Office have issued a ‘Strong Wind Warning’ (Force 6 and above) for the Solent area for the time of your charter, you may postpone your booking for another available date and not incur any charge. This link takes you to their website and if there’s a red line around our section of coast (Area 7) it means there’s a strong wind warning.




Explanations to ‘Tariff Descriptions’ in the table above

FREEDOM’s home mooring is a half tide swinging mooring at Dell Quay so timings revolve around the tide table. This is why the Tariff mentions no set times, just hours in order to stay very flexible.

FREEDOM is afloat approximately 3 hours before high water till 3 hours after. So a 5 hour sail is around the High Tide, and a 10 hour sail is going out on the ebbing tide and returning on the flooding tide.

We are very flexible and will do our best to accommodate your requirements in connection with Alistair’s availability and try and find a convenient date and time.
