In this day and age you are spoilt for choice with an array of events on offer but attitudes have changed and it is not all about extravagance and popping champagne corks.
Corporate hospitality is for everyone, we take large and small firms out for a corporate yacht charter sailing days who have a range of budgets.
So whether you are considering hosting a day out for the first time or looking to try something different, value for money is key to a successful and memorable day but importantly so are results.
To do this you need the right environment, relaxed and informal but you want to be able to chat to your guests without distraction.
It is important to remember why you are doing this and that you have to see a return on your investment.
- You get to spend a whole uninterrupted day with your clients
- You are away from the noise and distractions that other events introduce
- You have the time to spend quality time with each and everyone onboard
- Valued conversations in a neutral location, people relax and open up
- Your guests do not wander off
- They are not distracted by supporting a side at a sporting event
- For many it is a new and untried sport and certainly one that they will remember.
A sure way of achieving this is to offer people the opportunity to do something for the first time.
Whilst some people are nervous about sailing, the challenge that a sailing day offers and the team spirit it generates highlights that sailing is a great choice for any company day out.
You do not have to have sailed before and we provide a fully qualified and experienced skipper and crew along with all the necessary safety equipment to ensure a safe and fun day out.
The dynamics of each and every group we take out on the water differ and as well as the obvious safety role our skippers and crew are there to be attentive to your guests needs.
Part of the attractiveness of sailing is that you can take a mixed group of people and everyone will get something from being out on the water.
From the conversation to the scenery, whether you have sailed many times or never before every day is different. It is part of the unique aspect of sailing that we all enjoy.
We have a tried and tested programme which for most offer the best introduction into sailing.
If you have more specific requirements then once we have established your goals for the day we can construct the perfect day either cruising our way around the Solent visiting different ports or a combination of sail training, instruction and fun racing.
- Entertain new and existing customers
- Incentivise, reward and motivate their staff
- Build close working relationships
A day on the water is a unique and particularly effective way of getting to really know those around you and our team will ensure that all your needs are taken care of allowing you to focus on your own goals for the day.
The popularity of our sailing days is well proven and not just by those who already enjoy the sport sailing.
Newcomers to the sport invariably come away with a greater sense of satisfaction and achievement having enjoyed an exciting new experience.
So even if you may not have considered a sailing event we are confident that you will find our days:
- Great Value
- Great Fun
If nothing else groups gel and friendships develop and by simply being away from their normal environment doing something different is often enough to bring people together when they get back to their normal place of work.
The most important thing to stress is that each day is tailored around your needs and whilst we set out a basic itinerary if you have people with specific objectives we will always try and accommodate them.
In addition team building is recognised as an important factor in driving your team to work together and ensuring that your customers are satisfied.
Sailing is a great leveler and regardless of back ground or experience it provides you with an interesting insight into your team and how they react under different circumstances.
We ensure that our team building days involve everyone regardless of previous experience. Our professional skippers provide a fun and safe environment, offering those new to the sport an opportunity to participate.
