Covering All Bases For Corporate Sailing

If you are planning on a corporate sailing trip, there are certain things that you need to check out before embarking on such an exciting event for your company. Each charter company that deals with corporate sailing is different and has different options and fine print that you have to be fully aware of before signing on the dotted line.

For a start, check if your charter sailing company offers a comprehensive package where your company  does not have to pay a cent more once you begin your journey or a basic package which only covers certain amenities while others have to be paid for later. Such additional expenses can spring a nasty surprise if you are not careful.

There are some basic questions that need to be covered when chartering a corporate sailing event. One of these questions involves the food that will be provided on the trip. Check out if there is a chef who will be preparing the food for the trip or if you will have to do the meal planning yourself. If there is a chef, verify who will have the final say on what will be served.

As part of your corporate sailing, check what activities are included with the package. There are some packages that will include some of the activities that are available when in port, but others will not cover anything that is done at the different ports that are visited.

Keeping these considerations in mind when planning your next corporate sailing event can ensure that everything goes smoothly. This will be well appreciated by your superiors and colleagues.

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.

With its beautiful seas and tranquil surroundings, it serves also as an important recreational area for water sports, particularly yachting. It has been hosting the Cowes Week sailing event annually.

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.
