Explore Poole Harbour with Sail Poole Harbour
The graphic on the right shows some of the destinations. Our cruising grounds are the whole of Poole harbour, from Wareham in the west to the harbour mouth in the east. Outside the harbour, there is the ever popular destination of Studland Bay.
For the 2021 season we are offering two handover options:
Handover option 1:
Lake Yard (www.lakeyard.co.uk)
At Lake Yard Skate sits on a mooring buoy which you would have access to for the entirety of your charter.
Handover option 2
Poole Quay Boat Haven (www.poolequayboathaven.co.uk)
Poole Quay Boat Haven is the premier visitor marina for Poole Harbour. You would have a marina berth for the first night of your charter.
This graphic shows some of the potential destinations.
It is approximately 12 to 13 NM from Wareham to Studland. This is 4-5 hours sailing on Skate.
