If you are looking to organise a team building event in the next few months, look no further! Thames RIB Blasts and Treasure Hunts are a great way to see the City with an adrenaline kick added for extra excitement! This is the perfect activity to do alongside a meeting. We also have Clay Pigeon Shooting to offer from either a stunning 85' Motor Yacht, or a Sailing Barge for which Tower Bridge will open during the event. The Tower Guoman Hotel is perfectly positioned next to St Katherine's Pier where we operate most of our Thames Events from. Between January and March 2014 the hotel are offering Day Delegate Packages from £49 per person - what better way of motivating your team for the year ahead! Interested?

Franklyn Keith Musto's philosophy concurs with ours here at Solent Events, in that there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing! Musto began sailing aged 15, and went on to be a leading dingy sailor and an Olympic medal winner. Following the Olympics he set up a sail making business before turning and concentrating solely on clothing. In the New Years honours list Mr Musto received an OBE for services to the economy. Unlike most of his contemporaries, Keith (as he is known) was never happy to accept that being cold and wet were necessary inconveniences of sailing. Solent Events uniform is predominantly Musto, and we think its great! Branding clothing is a great way to make your event more bespoke. Ask us for options when you next enquire.

Last Tuesday on a sunny winter day we welcomed 48 guests to the New Forest for a Land Sea and Air Event. For this event based at Rhinefield House Hotel, each team were provided with a Samsung Galaxy Tablet pre-loaded with our very own state of the art treasure hunt software. The teams were given instructions with where they had to be and at what time for sessions in Mini Coopers, on board our high speed Ribs and in Twin Squirrel helicopters flying over the Solent to complete their challenge, meeting characters along the way.
