Northern Child is a beautifully presented Swan 51 available for luxury cruising or racing charter in the Solent. It is an ideal way to strengthen relationships with key clients or reward staff in a relaxed in environment outside of the office.
Northern Child has been organising sailing events for over 10 years and can tailor a day to suit your requirements. Northern Child can accommodate up to 12 guests and the 2 professional crew will ensure that you have a safe and memorable experience onboard. The crew can either instruct the guests how to sail Northern Child or allow you to sit back relax and take in the beauty of the Solent.
We can tailor days specifically to the needs of your business as we have experience in providing days for most corporate needs.
Corporate Regatta Days – If you would like to have a day racing during a regatta like Cowes Week we can provide a professionally crewed and skippered yacht for the day.
We can source team kit, boat and sail corporate decals and various other details to make your organisation’s mark on this regatta.
Reward and Entertainment Days – These days are often a bit slower and more sedate. The boat picks you up in Portsmouth after a breakfast ashore, then following a cruise in the Solent while learning the basics of sailing during the morning we find a beautiful anchorage for lunch afloat before putting your new skills into practice on the sail home. We can include as much or as little in the day as you wish.
Racing – We can provide two to four boats of the same specification for private racing in the Solent. We can do this in the traditional race format, or use more fun ideas such as a Solent treasure hunt.
Team Building Skills/ Recruitment/ Managerial Appraisal – We have lots of other less traditional tricks up our sleeves meaning that whatever your reason for getting afloat we can tailor a day to your needs. We have used sailing as a test of managerial ability for a Corporation wanting to assess its applicants; we have games on board using the boat to build the team work skills of the crews; we have managerial qualifications meaning that we can work with you to get the most out of your day, and we are always willing to talk through your particular wishes.
From the moment you book to the time you step of Northern Child we will do our utmost to ensure you have an enjoyable experience and can relax in the knowledge that you and your guest will be looked after.
