I can whole-heartedly recommend Clipper Events as one of the best corporate sailing firms I have experienced. Its round the world fleet makes for a unique and thrilling sailing experience. The yachts are perfect for team-building for both experienced and inexperienced sailors alike.


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.


Thank you for a very well received two days last week. The event completely achieved what it set out to do, and I have to say, I think it was our most successful event so far. I was very impressed with your sailing team who displayed a courteous, quiet and authoritative leadership style which was well received and noted by the participants. I would be delighted to work with them again.
