Why blow your own trumpet?
A great corporate day on the water with a very efficient ground crew both before and on the day of the event, together with a thoroughly friendly and professional crew. A really superb day was had by all staff and guests.

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.

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.
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!

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.

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 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 Anderson Group
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!
