Booking a sail

How to book a sail.

Want to go sailing?

The job of the Crewmaster is prepare the sailing programme and to take the bookings for any sails, please contact him using the details below if you would like to sail or you can contact the skipper of the sail you are interested in  using the telephone number, when shown, after his name on the sailing programme.

Each month the Crewmaster will prepare a sailing programme which is based upon the suitability of the tides that allow access from Douglas marina.

The sails vary in duration and we offer short sails of approximately 4 hours duration, day sails which typically could be 8 hours and cruises which vary in length from 2 to 7 days. The sails are shown on the sailing programme along with the departure time.  

Some of the short sail slots are allocated to our Community Group members and these will be published on the programme. If you are a group that represents a body of people who meet our ethos then please feel free to contact us to discuss sailing with us.  

We try to operate a self -service system whereby the programme is created for you to view and for you to select the sails which are suitable for you. A bit like going into a café and picking from the menu but we will try and put on specials if you request it. If you don’t see something that’s suits you please tell us.

So how do you go about booking a sail? Well that’s easy have a look at the sailing programme that’s published and either email crewmaster@manx.net or call him on 471222 and he will try and fulfil your wish. On occasions this may not be possible due to a variety of reasons and in these cases an alternative sail maybe suggested.

The sailing programme whilst prepared in advance cannot guarantee that the weather is going to be suitable so please bear with us if the sail has to be cancelled.

Happy sailing and we look forward to having your company on-board POMIII.
