Performance Yacht Charter

Performance Yacht Charter have something available for everyone.  Sailing aboard Northern Child, the beautiful Swan 51 or her exceptionally fast little sister, First 40 Southern Child (formerly Smile and Wave). Both yachts are fully race prepared with North Sails and their 2012 results speak for themselves.  We can tailor your charter to your requirements on a number of high quality, well maintained performance yachts.

I wanted to let you know what a great time we had on ‘Southern Child’ on RTI 2014. The wind was rubbish, at one point we were sailing in 1kn of breeze and doing 2kn of boat speed thanks to the tide down the backside of the Island. 

However, Chris and Gareth looked after my guests brilliantly and the whole day passed in an instructive and amusing fashion. We all had a ball, rather red (lobster-ish), and dying for a pint by the end but thoroughly enjoying the day overall. 

We could not recommend the yacht more highly and will be chartering again. We managed to get round in a little bit over 11 hours, with good pressure after Bembridge. 

Thank you again for allowing us to use the yacht. It is a great event for all comers, both who have sailed a lot and the complete beginner. Thank you too to Chris and Gareth who made the day for my guests.
