Ocean Blend – Yacht Sailing,Jet Ski and Powerboating
Staying in Brighton – Ocean Blend
A classy and stylish event
Our Ocean Blend is a fantastic group event that combines a sailing trip, powerboat ride and jet ski blast – making this an event suited to all tastes. Participate in sailing, the thrills of powerboating and jet skiing from a great location and you will experience an unbeatable and unforgettable day out!
We will take you out as a total beginner and give you a taste of what yachting is all about. After a short briefing with the skipper you will motor out of the marina and then get busy hosting the sails. The session can be spent getting to grips with sailing basics under the watchful eye of one of our Yachtmaster’s, or you can just sit back and relax whilst sailing along the sussex coastline.
Powerboat & Jet Skis:
Our jet skis and high speed powerboat RIB are seriously fast and fun – but be warned – they need to be handled with care! These power machines are a must do activity from Brighton, giving you the chance to see all the wonderful sights whilst practicing some tricky manoeuvres at speed!
What an amazing experience! Thanks so much to Ash and the team for the Jet ski session – truly remarkable!! Can’t wait to get back into it!!!
It was just fantastic! I was crashing through the waves getting air and everything!Just want to add the chap who took us out was so polite and very professional, just the best service!I know it seems pricey however their overheads must be enormous, so more than happy to pay. The experience was absolutely worth it!
This experience is not suitable for people with back problems.
