Special Events

Throughout the season Alice is involved in and available to charter for all sorts of special events. These are all at a slightly premium rate but, until we know exactly what you want to do and how many of you will be on board it, is difficult to give an exact price. Check later as more events will be added throughout the season! We are currently planing our next years schedule and as soon as it is complete we will email it direct to you.

just telephone 07979 75 14 33

or send a message from the bookings page and we will come straight back to you with full detail.

Events 2015

Fri 29th May to Sun 31st May 2015 Yarmouth Old Gaffers

The most fantastic weekend. Friday afternoon we will sail down to Yarmouth mooring alongside at about 1800. The full festivities of the YOGAF weekend will be available; Saturday morning will be the Old Gaffers race, Saturday evening is the prize giving with excellent bands playing in the tent.  Sunday about midday we will set of back to Portsmouth.

11th to 14th June 2015 Isle of Wight Festival

Imagine attending the festival with such a superb base for your accommodation.  On Thursday 1100 Alice will set off from Gun Wharf ( right next to Portsmouth Harbour station), at  1400 she will be moored alongside town quay in Newtown – plugged into the mains – the tent up just a magic place from which to enjoy the festival.  Your own Ipod music can play through the Alice system when the bands are silent – rain is just not a problem look at the deck tent.  Enjoy the whole festival from a delightful venue afloat. Alice will leave her mooring at 1100 on Monday 15th returning you all to Portsmouth on board – no queuing.  .  Alice can accommodate 12 all with individual bunks.  This opportunity you must not miss – as a group self catering it comes to only £55 per head per day – and no transport problems “just book now”.

Sat 27th June 2014 Round the Island Race

Watch the finish of this amazing event from a grandstand position afloat.  We will probably spend  Friday night in Gun Wharf and set off first thing to Cowes.  When we arrive we are likely to see the  first boats returning for the finish at about 10am.   The evening can be spent ashore enjoying the after race conversations in the pubs and sailing clubs. On Sunday late morning we will sail gently back to Gun Wharf arriving midday. This is a One and a half day charter and will be great fun, an event not to miss. Just call and agree the schedule you can enjoy at a price to suit your pocket.

Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th July 2015 America’s Cup

Portsmouth has been selected to host two preparation events for yachting’s 35th America’s Cup. The America’s Cup World Series (ACWS) races will take place from 23-26 July 2015 and 21-24 July 2016.

Mon 21st  to Fri 25th July 2015 Cowes Classic Week

This will be fantastic –  watch, from the deck of Alice, all the classic boats racing in the Solent.  Take part in the evening events and explore and board all the classic yachts moored for the week in Cowes.  Call us  – perhaps just a day would suit you, maybe the whole week.  We will be sailing the Solent each day anyway so the Thames sailing barge experience could be awaiting you.

Sat 8th to Fri 14th August 2015 Cowes Week

We still have some days available for this week including the Friday night fireworks. You can book the  week or just a day for this fantastic event. We will moor in Cowes ¬ all the racing can be seen as the  yachts sail right past us. We have our own rib for transporting you to and from the shore. There are so many options:  call us and we can arrange just a day or the whole of Cowes week.

Fri 21st to Sun 23rd August 2015 Bursledon Regatta

A really great weekend.  Children swimming, fireworks, races – everything that one imagined as perfection say 40 years ago.  Not to be missed – we were part of the scenery in 2012.  This year we will be playing and racing.
