Corporate Entertainment, Team Building & Conference Venues
Sailing days are one of the best forms of corporate entertainment. Be it the thrill of racing or the luxury of languid cruising, there is nothing like being at sea with a gentle breeze blowing and the lapping of the waves to make everyone forget the office. Add to this, good company, a glass of bubbly to wash down the “nibbles” or excellent food and you have almost reached utopia.
A proven advantage of a day’s yachting is that you the host have a captive audience for at least eight hours. Unlike Ascot, where the guests keep “popping” off to the bookies, or the rugby, where they will insist on cheering on the game, with yachts they can’t escape. Experience has shown that the majority of our guests have never been in a yacht before, which places you the host, in a unique position.
With very little effort, company teams gel easily together when forced to live eat and on occasions sleep in a very close environment. We can assess your staff whilst onboard and submit a comprehensive written report or submit a more casual verbal debrief. Some companies have used a weekend away as a reward for staff that has shown merit.
Our normal programme is to meet in Haslar Marina (Gosport) for a good breakfast with Bucks Fizz, sail over to Cowes for an excellent lunch with wine and eventually end up back at the Marina for tea. We tailor your days to exactly what you require and have the resources and contacts to produce virtually anything you want. All you have to do is ask and we will do our very best to accommodate you.

Sailing in Majorca
We also have a 36 ft Jeanneau in Majorca for an unusual sailing with tuition holiday for all the family. We operate out of Alcudia Marina in the North of the Island and have access to varied sizes of yachts and luxury powerboats.
Day sailing out of the Bay of Alcudia allows easy access to many little coves, ideal for sunbathing and swimming. Port Pollenca is only hours away and the Yacht Club offers some of the finest cuisine in the Island with 5 star service.
Alternatively you can anchor off Hotel Formentor where the King of Spain and our own Royal Family stay on occasions. Good restaurants abound in the North at very reasonable prices.
The Island of Minorca is but a day’s sail away from Alcudia and offers some of the nicest sandy deserted beaches in the Mediterranean. Shopping at the markets provides entertainment and many bargains.
The east coast of Majorca is reached within hours offering many varied ports, varying from small fishing villages through to “Gin Palace” Marinas. At any stage, anchorages in small sheltered coves are a must for a gentle dip in the Sea.
For the more ambitious the South coast is easily achievable within two days and offers long white sandy beaches, nightlife and a Casino. By arrangement we can deliver the yachts to the South before your arrival.
