The Season’s Not Over Yet!

It only feels like yesterday that we were prepping our boats for SailGP & Cowes Week at the start of August, somehow it’s already September and we’re left wondering where the time has gone?! Kids have gone back to school and for many companies, September marks the time to thank employees for their efforts over the year with a summer staff party/ reward day!

If you’re struggling for ideas for what to do then why not make the day extra special by chartering with us for a day out on The Solent? Start by having your guests arrive for bacon rolls & tea/ coffee at a local bistro situated in your chosen starting port, during this our lead skipper will come to meet and brief your group on the day ahead – as well as running through a short safety brief. Then, once ready, escort your group down to the boat(s) where the event truly begins. 

From here, the day is of your making, cruise from port to port with casual stop offs for the morning or add some competition to your day with our tablet based Treasure Hunt where teams head to specific locations to complete way-point based challenges.

Break up the day by organising lunch at your venue of choice, or for larger groups we can help organise a BBQ lunch at The Royal Ocean Racing Club which hosts spectacular views over The Solent and is the perfect spot for your team to regroup for the afternoon. 

For those after a more low key and easy lunch option, the Blue Crab in Yarmouth do a superb fish and chips with overly generous portions – perfect for a picnic style lunch by the shore.

In the afternoon, it’s back to the boat and out for some blasting around/high speed manoeuvres and potentially head out over to see the island’s famous Needles landmark.

Finish up your day by stepping ashore at your chosen finishing port and heading into the closest bar for drinks!
