Another Season Done!

Another Season Done!

What a season that was!  A new collaboration with a premium New Zealand wine brand saw us running a classy wine bar for the world famous Round the Island Race for the presenting partner, Cloudy Bay with celebrity appearances from brand ambassador Ben Fogle. The sun shone the entire weekend and hundreds of sailors and visitors to Cowes enjoyed the lovely range of wines along with food pairings lovingly prepared by the amazing Ministry of Food Hampshire

With yachts racing on the water for clients as well as the shore side presence, this was one of our busier weekends after Lendy Cowes Week.

With plenty of bespoke regattas, Rib Treasure Hunts, Luxury sailing and Powerboat Charters, we managed to keep ourselves busy right up until the last few days in September.

September is always a busy month and was no exception this year. Multiple match racing regattas, The newly re-modeled Little Britain Challenge Cup (for the construction industry) and several conference and party events entwined with marine based hospitality wound up a very busy year. Staff reward events and team building days dominated the month with one post regatta party at ‘Glamping Site’ Vintage Vacations on the Isle of Wight seeing a client return for a second year having previously said they never do the same event twice.  One of our more memorable September events has to be a super lavish birthday party event that included two 75 foot motor yachts, Ribs, Jet Skis and absolutely every detail humanly possible to make this a day to remember!

Wouldn’t it be lovely to now relax and take a long break?… Absolutely no chance of that with clients, suppliers and venues to catch up with to plan for 2018!
