Find out how Britannia can inspire and reward your best people to drive better business performance.


Britannia Corporate Events are a specialist provider of team sailing days. Based in Port Hamble Marina on the South Coast of England we are ideally situated on the River Hamble – just minutes from the Solent, the premier sailing area in the UK.

Established since 1998, Britannia own and manage a fleet of high quality race-prepared yachts. These yachts are designed to be sailed by a team which creates a natural team building environment, as the sailing crew communicate and work together to sail the yacht.

As well as single day team building and bespoke sailing days, Britannia also manages and runs several large, prestigious industry regattas. These regattas bring together competitors from within an industry (for example Legal or IT) and provide fantastic in-house team building, client entertainment and cross-company networking opportunities.

Our yachts also race competitively in regattas in the UK and Caribbean. Teams can charter a yacht with skipper to take part, or for those with more experience, contact us for bareboat charter options.
