Additional information

Join us for a weekend of fantastic racing in the world’s most prestigious sailing event. If you have never taken part, you have not lived! We offer a number of packages, starting from individual places to fully skippered yacht ready for hard racing, team building and corporate entertainment.

We can, of course, provide any kind of branding required, including hull and sails advertising. Unless requested, we do not place more than 6 crew on board, which means that everyone gets to race, which is exactly what the weekend is about.

You can do as much or as little as you like, of course, but we find that everyone tends to have much more fun if they actually get to be part of the crew, rather than just enjoy the scenery!

…Excellent! Really good fun, I didn’t know anyone when I came and it was fine, we still keep in touch. The racing was just unbelievable, soooo many boats. Starboard tack rules!…

…Thank you for the race, our spinnaker looked fantastic, particularly as we managed to hoist it up ourselves! It’s a great feeling to be working the spinnaker with company logo on it with all these boats around you. Double the pressure not to rip it up! Thanks for a great day, we loved it…

…Thank you, the training day prior to the race was a very good idea, sorted us out… back for Cowes week, no doubt, thanks for a great weekend…
