OPEN TO ENTRIES
This regatta is a fantastic opportunity to network with industry 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 unrivalled 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.
The Reginald Fessenden Challenge 2021 is open to entries so contact us for more information.
