Launching from Langstone, I'd go to Priory Bay - great beach, then nip to the Pilot Boat in Bembridge for a beer.

Ryde or Cowes are always easy, or go on down to the Folly inn.

Yarmouth or Ventnor are good for a day out of your looking to go further afield. Good pub grub as well. Ventnor, tide depending.
