Organising your Corporate Event with 4charter
Any successful businessman will know that their company should run like a well oiled machine, and a huge part of this revolves around encouraging a feeling of together amongst the workforce. A corporate boat charter may seem like an unusual choice for a work day out, but in fact can bring your staff closer together through the need for teamwork whilst out on the open sea.
Solent Sailing Options
Alice offers a variety of packages designed to help you select your optimum corporate sailing event, whether you simply wish to host a dinner party or invest in a weekend sailing charter. If you are not sure exactly which type of corporate sailing event you are after, our experienced team can give advice based on your needs and desires and therefore ensure you will be entirely satisfied with your time on Alice.
A day sail, for example, may be right up your street if you wish to give your staff a taster of the teambuilding opportunities aboard Alice. A party of up to 12 people will have the opportunity to participate in sailing activities such as setting the sail, taking the helm and winding the leeboards, working in unison under the watchful eye of our skipper and barge master Alan, who as a member of the Royal Ocean Racing Club is the ideal teacher for both novice and experienced sailors alike.
Meeting at the prestigious Gun Wharf Quays in Portsmouth, where Alice is docked in the harbour, your party will have the ability to take in the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton from an entirely new angle whilst setting sail down the Solent. Lunch will be served on-board moored alongside the picturesque Cowes harbour, with the scenery and Alice herself making this a top end luxury yacht charter. The more adventurous members of your party may wish to fulfil their need for speed by enjoying a quick blast on our 250HP 50mph RIB to feel the wind in their hair!
Weekend Charters on the Solent
Alternatively, a weekend corporate boat charter can be booked for between 12 and 60 people, as we use a small fleet of yachts in conjunction with Alice to accommodate for larger parties. Your weekend will start at 10am, again at Gun Wharf Quays, where a briefing and yacht allocation will take place before a scenic sail down the Solent to Osborne Bay for lunch. An afternoon race to the Squadron line in Cowes will follow, with the evening spent exploring Cowes before turning in for the night at Cowes Yachthaven.
Day 2 will begin with breakfast at popular Cowes eatery Tiffin’s before racing back to Gun Wharf Quays marina, allowing for a little friendly competition between the sailors as a grand finale to your corporate sailing event. During this time, those looking to go even faster will again be given the opportunity to have a go on an RIB, this time our 225HP 50mph model.
A yacht charter on the Solent may well be just the thing you are looking for in your attempt to come up with innovative and exciting new ways to promote togetherness and cooperation amongst your staff. Alice is the only Thames Sailing Barge in the Portsmouth and Southampton area and so is in very high demand, so it is certainly worth getting in touch and beginning to plan your Solent sailing event soon.Book Today!
