This regatta is a fantastic opportunity to network with peers, promote your brand amongst a relevant audience, enjoy a team building activity and have a fun day, sailing in the UK's premier sailing area, the Solent.
Whether you choose to bring a team from head office, or captivate key clients or business partners, a day on a yacht is an unrivaled way to build stronger working relationships. Combine that with networking drinks and a BBQ at the nearby Royal Southern Yacht Club - and the result is an exciting and productive event!
You and your invited team will sail together on a premium sailing yacht, under the guidance of a professional skipper - so don't worry, no previous sailing experience is required.
Any company is invited to join.
The Chestnut Tree Challenge brochure is now available for download and the 2018 regatta is open to entries so contact us for more information.
On Tuesday 29th May you and your guests will arrive in Port Hamble Marina and enjoy a fantastic evening hosted by the Chestnut Tree House to raise funds for their amazing Children's Hospice.
The evening will start with a BBQ and follow with some fundraising activities.
The bar will be open till late but don't drink too much, you will have a busy day on Wednesday!
The next morning after breakfast in Banana Wharf you will head out on the Solent for a day of race training then the all important racing.
A short break for lunch then the decider race for the Chestnut Tree Challenge 2018 Trophy!
