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 little sailing experience had joined forces to crew a yacht as if we had all been doing it for many years. The sheer excitement of the day, from the frantic build-up to executing manoeuvres, to the much appreciated moments of relaxation and banter in between, had rendered us a tired but satisfied crew as we headed back to Gunwharf Quays.

Any team requiring motivation or having difficulties bonding would benefit from a day like today, as everyone needs to know when to assert themselves or when to simply stand back and let others take the helm.

Without doubt yesterday was one of the best corporate days I have done. Totally exhilarating, great weather, great crew and overall a fantastic day which will be remembered for a long time I’m sure.
I know we come to expect a very smooth delivery from Clipper Events by now but you completely surpassed all expectations! Thank you so much from all of us, the slickness and quality of everything was noted by many guests so not only have you given us a great event and helped our reputation but I am sure Clipper Events is being spoken about in offices across Europe and the US this morning – well done!

I will definitely be booking a Clipper Events race day for my key clients. You can’t beat that joint commitment of mucking in with the most physically demanding tasks. I also loved being the one told what to do for a change.

The Clipper Race team were very helpful and informative. The overall feedback from all those that participated on the day was very positive and all enquired about next year! Finally the Nautica watches were very well received by the winning team and compliments to the Clipper Events team all round!
I can whole-heartedly recommend Clipper Events as one of the best corporate sailing firms I have experienced. Their round the world fleet makes for a unique and thrilling sailing experience. The yachts are perfect for team-building for both experienced and inexperienced sailors alike.

The calibre of staff both on and off the water is very high. The skipper and mates are always enthusiastic and professional. A level of professionalism that is hard to find elsewhere in the sailing industry. With the size of boats Clipper Events offers, it is easy to spot the other teams on the water, which adds an extra level of competitiveness between the teams as they aim to be first back across the finish line.
Taking a whole yacht in this year’s event made for an excellent team building exercise for all. Net Evidence believes that the quality of the relationships formed and reinforced more than justified the costs. In comparison to holding a trade show where we gain many leads that deliver little, this targeted form of marketing delivers a lot, both directly and indirectly.
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.
Regional Sales Director
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.
Thank you for a very well received two days last week. The event completely achieved what it set out to do, and I have to say, I think it was our most successful event so far. I was very impressed with your sailing team who displayed a courteous, quiet and authoritative leadership style which was well received and noted by the participants. I would be delighted to work with them again.
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.

An excellent weekend of sailing was provided by Clipper Events for us and our guests. The yachts performed very well in challenging conditions, under the expert guidance of the skipper and crew. A top weekend was had by all, which will be remembered for a long time.
Turner & Townsend
Yes it was a fantastic day out! Good group of clients, everybody joined in and all seemed to enjoy themselves! The Clipper team were great too, well organised, good venue, breakfast, briefings, lunch, etc and of course the boat was fantastic – all rounded off by perfect sailing conditions on the Solent. We would definitely look to do it again.
