Events That Make Waves In Your Business
At AWD, we take pride in arranging corporate events that are unique, sophisticated, and memorable. As a luxury three day getaway, our corporate sailing event provides you and your team/clients the perfect chance to spend with each other. Our events are very flexible and our corporate planning team will always ensure the event is tailored to the individual requirements of your business. However, below is an example itinerary of what a sailing getaway for you and your team could look like.
Sailing On The Solent, Ocean Village Marina, Southampton
Hampshire is well known for its fantastic coastline. It stretches the length of the Solent, an area world renowned for its sailing. The Solent encompasses a large area of protected water, steeped in historical and natural beauty.
A corporate sailing event getaway hosted by AWD is guaranteed to provide you and your guests with memories for a lifetime. Along with the remarkable experiences offered throughout the trip, guests will be able to relax and recuperate in The Harbour Hotel, Southampton.
This ‘super yacht’ style hotel’ is enriched with first class facilities. Therefore, making it a luxurious place to stay for you and your team. The only 5-star hotel in Southampton, this is a standout venue that boasts:
- an award-winning restaurant,
- a luxury spa with a state-of-the-art gym,
- and a destination rooftop bar.
It’s the perfect base for those sailing on the Solent. As well as being in a desirable location should you wish to visit the quaint villages of the surrounding New Forest.
Day one starts with individual travel to The Harbour Hotel Ocean, in Southampton. As part of our corporate event management services, our event managers will already be at the hotel. They will be ready to welcome you and your guests upon arrival. In addition, the hotel is fully equipped to host any business meetings during the daytime and the first day allows for time to host these meetings.
Guests can explore the area before enjoying drinks at one of the bars overlooking the marina. A drinks reception then takes place at the hotel’s top floor in a spectacular rooftop destination bar. Dinner is then hosted in a private area in The Jetty. Here you’ll be dining on locally-caught seafood with seasonal ingredients, paired with eclectic wines and sea views.
Day 2 starts with breakfast in The Jetty before guests board the yachts in the marine. Guests will then head out along Southampton Water and into the Solent for an exciting day of leisure cruising.
Lunch will be served onboard at Osborne Bay, Isle of Wight overlooking historic Osbourne House. On the way back, guests will get to participate in a fun race back to the marina and upon return, can relax and take advantage of the spa facilities.
The evening offers a luxury champagne drinks reception on the rooftop terrace again, where you can enjoy the breathtaking views overlooking the Solent.
Day three begins with another leisurely breakfast in The Jetty, overlooking the water. The morning allows for plenty of time to have more fun on the water with RIB rides around The Needles and the opportunity to ride on the jet skis.
Southampton Water Activities Centre is a premier south coast water sports centre close by, offering guests the chance to try sailing, windsurfing, power boating or SUP boarding throughout the morning too.
Once the activities have finished, guests will meet back at the Ocean Village Marina for a late lunch, before departing back home.
