Ports

Jersey is an island in the English Channel, the largest of the Channel Islands and a Crown Dependency, affiliated to the British Isles. The capital Saint Helier provides Museums, restaurants, hotels and Nightlife. A warm climate, a green agricultural landscape and a francophile culture give Jersey a distinct atmosphere from the rest of the UK. Just 9 miles by 5, Jersey is compact enough to explore during a brief stop-over.

Southampton, on the shores of the Solent, is the largest port of England. The bustling town offers plenty of distractions, and is known (sometimes reviled) for its brutalist architecture. However, the city hosts a number of fine museums, the Tudor House, and long stretches of medieval walls. Also, the beautiful English countryside is just a short drive away. The yearly Southampton boat show in september should be on any Windseeker’s calendar. And don’t forget to visit the Isle of Wight!
