Corporate Sailing At Solent
The Solent refers to the waters that separate the Isle of Wight from the mainland of England and is a major shipping route for many shipping companies which include passengers, freight and military vessels.
Sheltered by the Isle of Wight, it has allowed Southampton to remain a very successful port. Portsmouth lies on its shores and Spithead, an area off Gilkicker Point near Gosport, is known as the place where the Royal Navy is traditionally reviewed by the monarch even till today.
This area holds great ecological and landscape importance, simply because of the coastal and estuarine habitats along the edge of the Solent. Most of this area has been designated as a Special Area of Conservation. Surrounding it are important nature reserves which include the New Forest National Park, and the Isle of Wight AONB.
Organising a corporate sailing in the Solent is a very good idea. Your company staff would love the beautiful and relaxing environment while at the same time, it has abundant space for you to even engage in team building activities in the sea safely.
