Sailing is a fantastic way for guests to get together for a day – it builds close relationships, rewards and exhilarates and most of all, is great fun! Our yachts can also serve as a platform for hospitality where guests can relax and enjoy the wonderful sights of the Solent. Whether you are looking to reward your staff, treat your clients and have the opportunity to get to know them better, or to enjoy a competitive, fun, racing challenge with a larger group, we can provide the perfect package.
No previous experience is required, our highly professional skippers will provide hands-on training, keep you safe and under their expert guidance will have you sailing the yacht yourselves in no time. With two or more yachts, the interaction between the yachts is always friendly but competitive and the informal racing between the yachts ultimately provides a memorable experience that will remain long after the event.
We can arrange charters from one yacht to a fleet of boats that are all matched from our base in Ocean Village Marina, Southampton – the marina and city centre close by offer a unique blend of hotels, restaurants, clubs, bars and meeting rooms. Our most popular yachts are the Beneteau 40.7 yachts which are perfectly suited for up to 10 guests each, but we can provide larger sailing and motor yachts up to 12 guests if required.
We can also offer yachts as a hospitality base to watch a Solent racing event such as Cowes Week. A deluxe package with a delicious lunch onboard and the opportunity to view the racing from close up – what better way to spend a day!
We know itineraries vary and we arrange your event to suit your requirements.
0900 Arrive at Ocean Village Marina, Southampton – we will meet you and introduce you to your skipper. Breakfast and refreshments will be served and following the safety briefing, you will set sail up Southampton Water and into the Solent for a morning’s sail which will include helming, hoisting of sails, winching and navigation,
Everyone gets the chance to get fully involved in all the roles onboard, but if any guests do not wish to participate, they are welcome to sit back and enjoy the ride. Refreshments will be served during the morning.

1400 Return the yacht for an afternoon’s sailing in the Solent. This can be leisurely sail to see the sights of this beautiful stretch of water and a chance to relax, or if you have two or more yachts, we can organise an informal race around the buoys back to Ocean Village Marina so the crew can maximise their newly-found sailing skills! It’s great fun and the crew are very much encouraged to sail the yachts themselves and to make decisions without the help of the skipper, although he is on hand at all times to keep a guiding eye on the proceedings.
Afternoon tea and cakes will be served.
