The Perfect Team Building Platform

We organise everything from parking to post sailing drinks to make sure that each detail is taken care of and that your guests enjoy a seamless, relaxed day.

We understand that in business valuable time spent away from the distractions of the office can be a real driver to success. Our Boardroom to Boat days are the perfect way to motivate, reward and inspire delegates. 

Spend the morning discussing key issues integral to your business in a meeting room set up with our partner, Solent Hotel and Spa, followed by a relaxing afternoon out on the water, a unique and relationship enhancing experience that we guarantee will help you reach your objectives. What’s more, absolutely no sailing experience is required so is perfect for everyone.

"It was a very well organised event, something different from the normal corporate event day. My team and I had a fantastic time and will look to do it again next year."
