Corporate Yacht Charter and Sailing Days
Companies and other organisations are under pressure to achieve increasing cost effectiveness in all activities. Corporate sailing events increasingly favoured as Directors discover the great value and potential payback of a company sailing day.
A corporate sailing day involves the hire of one or more of our superb yachts with professional skipper who will guide your team throughout the day, ensuring everyone can be involved and learn some new sailing skills whilst remaining safe at all times.
As your team learn to work together to sail the boat, they will develop stronger relationships and better communication as sailing clearly demonstrates how if everyone does their own job, whilst supporting each other the result is a smooth and fast trip!
In addition to learning new skills, you can add optional ‘exhilaration’with high-speed rib-rides around the Solent or for groups with more than one yacht, a fun race can be organised between the teams!
Choose the format of your Company Sailing Day
Depending on the objectives of your day, Hamble Point Yacht Charters’experienced team will help you plan the most effective format and itinerary. Speak to us about what you are hoping to achieve so we can help ensure your day exceeds all expectations.
As an example, for team building, a morning of sail training with a quick lunch and an informal afternoon race or treasure hunt is a great way to get teams working together, breaking down barriers in communication and creating shared experiences.
For a client entertainment day, you may prefer something a little less active, with more time to talk about business opportunities. In this case, consider a leisurely sail to Cowes with lunch at one of the prestigious yacht clubs or a day on board Seafin, our 75ft traditional motor cruiser, suitable for groups of up to 30 people all on board the same boat.
Whichever format you choose, we will help tailor the day to be a unique and memorable experience for all your guests.
