Testimonials

The whole event was a spectacular success for us as a business and for our personal enjoyment, rounded off with an enjoyable evening.

Utterly brilliant and quite the best corporate day (or otherwise) I have enjoyed in years. I would strongly and unreservedly recommend anybody that is offered an opportunity to sail on these incredible yachts to jump at the chance.

In twenty years of sailing, the experience I had yesterday was up there in the top ten of fantastic sailing days that I can possibly remember.

An amazing weekend of sailing. Great skipper and crew. I will be recommending this to all at BNP. A great way to bring our team from across Europe together. Very memorable, very exciting.

We were all amazed at the extent to which the exhilaration of racing and the level of teamwork required had bonded us. Even more impressive was the fact that, after mere hours of instruction, a group of people with very…
