Description of Philip's sailboat

Challenger is based in Cowes, Isle of Wight, the heart of the English sailing community. There’s nowhere better than Cowes for sailing and water activities. The town is the home of Cowes Week, the oldest and biggest sailing regatta in the world. Cowes is a vibrant, exciting place at any time, with sporting and cultural events throughout the year and plenty of places to shop and eat. Challenger is a Beneteau 40.7 which is equally at home racing during Cowes Week or gentle cruises to Osbourne bay or Newtown creek. As well as Cowes week Challenger is also a regular competitor in cross channel and Round The Island Races. Challenger is coded for commercial charters and fully equipped with life-jackets and wet weather gear. She is available with a local professional skipper who will be happy to advise the best locations for your trip; be it a gentle cruise, stag event or local regatta. If you are interested in spending some time on Challenger, please contact me via Click and Boat messaging. Hope to see you soon. Phil

Fantastic day with Phil on his lovely boat. Phil was brilliant at keeping in touch as we had bad weather planned. Really flexible with times. Very knowledgeable, and patient teaching us the ropes. We had a wonderful trip celebrating my dads 60th. Even when it poured with rain, Phil had the kit. Was a brilliant experience- thank you so much Phil for making such a memorable day.
