What we can offer

Our matched yacht fleets can accommodate groups of up to 12 persons on each vessel, plus a skipper and crew. For overnight bookings, we can sleep 10, using the Bavaria 46.

Although timing is entirely flexible, a typical day might go as follows:-

Start at 9.30am with a safety briefing on the yacht in Gosport or Lymington and an introduction to its equipment and systems.

Set off around 10 to depart the Harbour and sail across the Solent to the Isle of Wight to anchor in Osborne Bay or Newtown Creek for coffee. Throughout the trip, guests are encouraged to take an active part in the running of the boat - helming, handling sails and ropes, navigation etc.

Its just a short hop from the anchorage to Cowes, the home of Yachting, to moor up in the marina for lunch ashore or onboard. There is time to stretch the legs and explore the Cowes shops.

After lunch, sail back across the Solent, having tea on the move to arrive back at the marina by about 5pm.

High quality food - hot or cold, can also be provided and served fresh on board or everyone can help themselves.

Teamwork races

A key benefit of sailing as a corporate event is that it virtually forces the guests on board (staff or customers) to work together as a team in order to sail the boat to its best.

Our skippers are skilled at leading your group through a day or a weekend of short races that maximise the competition between boats and therefore the team effort within crews.

At the end of the event, we can arrange trophies and prizes that reward the efforts of the guests and keep your company's name in their minds.

Packages

We can be fully flexible and you can have any number of boats where and when you want. But check out our Genoa and Mainsail packages (links at top of page) for examples of great value sailing suggestions.

Contact us by email, phone, fax or letter - we would love to hear from you.

Corporate Sailing Clubs

How about setting up a sailing club within your company. We do all the hard work and there can be little or no cost to the business for what is perceived as a significant benefit to your staff. Add to that the opportunity for bonding outside work and its win, win all round.
