birthday celebration on the water

For the client who wants everything…

When Solent Events were approached to host a complex birthday celebration on the water at short notice, we said “Of Course, no problem at all!”

Not quite your average event when 4 helicopters descend from the heavens in the otherwise sleepy market village of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, our Ribs transferred the guests to the ‘Mothership’ awaiting in the Harbour for breakfast served by a Michelin star chef. A 64 ft vintage racing yacht, built in 1969, followed ready for a spot of sailing in from the Needles lighthouse to Freshwater Bay.

The sommelier onboard poured the finest wines and Champagnes, while the guests reviewed the afternoon activities: from jet skis, wake boarding, water skiing and stand up paddle boarding, to high speed Rib rides, fly-boarding and swimming in the unseasonably warm Solent waters. The day was rounded off with a 10 course meal at a private estate on the Beaulieu River.

We can’t really think of a better way to spend an action packed day, can you?

With the right budget anything is possible, our events are only limited by your imagination – get in touch to discuss the perfect event for you!
