An amazing weekend of sailing. Great skipper and crew. I will be recommending this to all at BNP. A great way to bring our team from across Europe together. Very memorable, very exciting.


Without doubt, yesterday was one of the best corporate days I have done. Totally exhilarating, great weather, great crew and overall a fantastic day which will be remembered for a long time I’m sure.


I will definitely be booking a Clipper Events race day for my key clients. You can’t beat that joint commitment of mucking in with the most physically demanding tasks. I also loved being the one told what to do for a change.
