Corporate Entertainment

Corporate Sailing Days

Sailing provides an ideal environment for corporate entertainment and hospitality. As well as being a memorable experience, the client is yours to influence for the whole day. A yacht provides a perfect venue for discussing business over a quiet drink, soaking up the atmosphere – or for relaxing and getting to know your clients better.

You can either sit back and enjoy the thrill of sailing in the Solent, or take a more active role, helming, navigating, crewing and being part of an adventure! As you and your clients master the art of sailing together, the power of a shared experience becomes a unique marketing opportunity – as well as a great way to form close connections.

We provide a specialist, personalised and flexible experience catering for individual corporate needs. We come from the corporate world and have a good understanding of the need to balance networking with having fun. Using our considerable sailing experience, we provide a relaxed environment where clients can be hands on and really get involved with the crewing or can simply sit back and relax and enjoy the day. All our yachts are highly equipped and well maintained and the crew have many years of sailing experience.

Firstaway can provide a skipper, crew and catering service to meet your requirements, leaving you free to look after your clients. We can also put together a flexible itinerary for your corporate sailing day – let us know your timing requirements, the type of event, and the profile of your clients and we can make recommendations to maximise the benefits to your company.

Brilliant Day on the Water

Fantastic days sailing with friends on a wonderful boat. It certainly helped that we had 3 very experienced sailors with us, would highly recommend Firstaway sailing if you want a day on the water in the Solent. - Clive B

Firstaway Yacht Charters

Thanks Sally and Eric for great service and a brilliant day with Firstaway Yacht Charters. Excellent first experience of sailing. Skipper Eric was great and let us all take a turn at the helm. A great way to celebrate special occasions. Boat was clean and well maintained with good facilities too. Would recommend Firstaway to anyone wanting to take a trip sailing. - R & A Jenner

May Bank Holiday Charter of Cascadeur

We were 7 onboard this Jeanneau 12.5 m and while there wasn't much wind, with what little there was we managed 7 kts. Cascadeur is a great charter boat - roomy, clean, well equipped. Eric and Sally were very helpful and clearly know their stuff. - Peter R

Highly recommended

Wonderful people. Sally in particular couldn't have been more helpful. The skippers were professional and experienced, but also good fun and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Thanks all! - Sam N

Day trip with great skipper

Excellent company, with a very well appointed boat (Zara). Nothing was a problem to them, despite me chopping and changing a lot. Our skipper - Gavin - was fantastic. Knowledgable, friendly and great company. I would certainly use this company again.- ASQC

I chartered with Firstaway 3 days a Gib'Sea 37ft yatch. Very well kept and clean. excellent service and assistance, very easy checkin-checkout process. we did some 60 miles chilling around the Solent, Yarmouth harbour was also an excellent experience. highly recommended. - Tommaso M

An exciting day

A beautiful day on the water around the Solent... I was slightly anxious as I don’t have webbed feet but Eric and Sally were great hosts and competent sailors... now looking forward to my next seafaring adventure. - Karen
