Corporate Event Ideas

Cowes Week
Cowes Week
From the 3rd to the 10th August, the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week will be in full flow.

Cowes Week is one of the few opportunities to see amateur racers pitch themselves against Olympic champions in the most intense and competitive 'round the cans' racing of the calendar.

However, you don't need to be racing to take part in Cowes Week. This event is ideal for corporate entertaining. Why not entertain your clients for the day by inviting them to see the racing from a privileged and unique angle while enjoying refreshments and an on board lunch.

Or use the event to entertain your colleagues; it's a great way to build rapport or just to say thank you.

Bella is available for on a daily or a full week basis throughout Cowes Week.

Joining Bella in Lymington at 09.00 we will sail to Cowes for the commencement of the racing, returning at around 17.00. You will have the opportunity to go ashore at Cowes or stay on Bella all day.

Staff Rewards and Recognition
Staff Rewards and Recognition
Financial rewards are quickly forgotten but sailing can give your staff a once in lifetime experience that they will treasure.

Bella is a stunning yacht; she is very well presented and sails effortlessly. It would be tricky not to feel special when you step onboard and this might be how you’d like to make your staff feel when they have gone that extra mile for you.

Bella is fully equipped with all the kit your staff will need for a day at sea so they can simply arrive at Lymington Yacht Haven ready to relax and reflect on how they achieved this experience.

Management Training and Staff Development
Management Training and Staff Development
Why not get a whole lot more out of your routine management meetings by holding one on the water? Bella offers a fantastic opportunity for you to develop your staff in alternative ways that will undoubtedly be appreciated by the team and you’ll reap the benefits of this back in the business long term.

Such days can be tailored to meet your own requirements but ideas that have worked really well in the past for companies like Tesco include: setting the team the challenge of provisioning the boat (cooking onboard is very different from preparing from a dinner party at home!); learning about navigation; taking part in quizzes on international buoyage systems, practical tasks like working out how to rescue a MOB, and there’s always time for exploring the Solent’s areas of natural beauty too.

Client Entertainment
Client Entertainment
Cheltenham Gold Cup? Six Nations at Twickenham? Fantastic days out for your clients, but everybody always gets invited to these events and how much time do you actually spend talking with your guests when you get there? Sailing is a unique client entertainment solution.

It will probably be the first time your client has been invited sailing, you and your client will definitely have a shared experience that will stay with you both for a very long time and, even if you only choose one day on the water, your client will not be able to escape from you! Sailing promises quality one to one time for you and your client.

Bella’s skipper, Mike runs his own business as well as Bella; he has spent years working at a senior level in the corporate world (for Mercedes-Benz, Honda and Suzuki GB, for example) so you and your clients will be appropriately entertained throughout your time on Bella.

Team Building
Team Building
Sailing is an excellent way to develop and build a team. On a yacht, as in business, everyone counts to the final outcome. No matter what the 'rank’ of the individual, they can make or break the ultimate performance of the team.

Sailing highlights key personality differences and naturally demands a greater understanding of colleagues in the team in order to achieve the ultimate performance of the yacht.

Very often, as in business, team members can feel out of their normal comfort zone while others will feel perfectly at home and in command, as a consequence normal team dynamics can be turned completely topsy- turvey. The way colleagues view each other is often very different post the event than it was prior to the event.

Essential to our team building event is planning; we will work with you to make sure that we know the individuals involved, the objective of the event and that we have effective pre and post event briefing and de-briefing events.

Our events can be based on single or multiple yachts over one or more days.
