The Henri Coandã Challenge

This regatta is a fantastic opportunity to network with industry peers, promote your brand amongst a relevant audience, enjoy a team building activity and have a fun day, sailing in the UK’s premier sailing area, the Solent.

Importantly we will be raising money for the charity, Aerobility. Established in 1993 by a group of passionate aviators, Aerobility offers disabled people, without exception, the opportunity to fly an aeroplane.  This is an amazing charity that really does deserve our help.

Whether you choose to bring a team from head office, or captivate key clients or business partners, a day on a yacht is an unrivalled way to build stronger working relationships. Combine that with networking drinks and a BBQ at the nearby Royal Southern Yacht Club – and the result is an exciting and productive event!

You and your invited team will sail together on a premium sailing yacht, under the guidance of a professional skipper – so don’t worry, no previous sailing experience is required. 

Any company is invited to join.

The 2022 Regatta is open to entries so contact us for more information.
