Nice idea but it could turn out to be a nightmare.  The Broads idea was much better.  On the Broads you can get off, go to a pub or resturant, and you are unlikely to meet life threatening situations like strong tides, strong winds, rocky lee shores, reefs and tricky harbour entrances. Bear in mind you could experience all those hazards at once.  Also the type of boat you sail is likely to be smaller and thus more easily handled and more responsive.  In fact only someone with little experience is likely to ask the question you have asked.

So I'd say the Broads is has to be the answer and this is what it can look like out of season.

Actually I was suggesting a trip on the broads *first* to see if the couple works running a boat together in a less highly charged atmosphere/high risk situation, rather than replacing the "trip of a lifetime". Some couples work well sailing together and some definitely don't, and its as well to know which category you come into before the big trip!
