Let The Sailing Season Commence!

Let The Sailing Season Commence!

With sailing season just around the corner and even the sun making an appearance, we at Solent Events are gearing up for one of our busiest seasons yet! But before we pull on our deck shoes and hoist up the sails, we thought we’d touch deck with you lot and give you an idea of what’s to come with a few of our favourite photos from last year. From some of the best local regattas to an event thrown on the volcanic isle of Lanzarote, these photos are sure to have you itching to get back out on the big blue! 

 

Morning briefs delivered on the dockside by our Skippers get things all kicked off. The Emirates Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth sets a pretty lovely backdrop for the proceedings on this sunny morning.

Calm conditions call for a sunshine yellow spinnaker. Days like this remind us the reason behind the phrase ‘Plain Sailing’ – we can already feel the sun on our faces.

Once the wind picks up however it’s all hands on deck for a bit of healthy competition. The closer the race the more fun, and this one is looking especially exciting!

Taking part in one of the many great local regattas such as the iconic JP Morgan Round the Island Race ramps up the competition to a whole new level as you take to the waters with 1800 other yachts and race against professional teams and Olympians. There really is no spectacle quite like it.

Cowes Week racing

For our best Cowes Week to date we had the stage set accordingly in the form of our very own VIP area overlooking the sights and sounds of the marina. Just the place for our guests to kick back with a glass of Nyetimber and a big plate of food after a long day out on the water…

…but not before a whizz around the Solent on a rib ride to catch the racing up close and cheer the teams on

At the end of the sailing season in 2015 we were asked to organize a regatta further afield in the quest to find some October sunshine for our clients, so off we headed to picturesque island of Lanzarote.

Palm trees, warm weather and a good gust of wind – our idea of paradise! Our guests were treated to the volcanic vistas of the Island during racing.
