1 to 8 August 2009
Cowes Week is the world’s longest running regatta event, first started in 1826. Steeped in tradition it attracts crews from far and wide including many internationally renowned sailors and celebrities. As Britain’s premier sailing event Cowes Week is one of the finest corporate entertaining opportunities available.
In 2009 the beautiful tall ships J.R. Tolkien and Atlantis will be available for corporate hospitality during the regatta. The J.R. Tolkien is suitable for groups of 20 to 90 guests and offers full service and catering with delicious buffets, deck barbecues and seated dinners (up to 50 people). The Atlantis is suitable for groups of 40 to 140 guest with a superb sundeck and saloon for the perfect company day out. The tall ships are available for day and evening events - sailing or at the quayside. The J.R. Tolkien has been set aside for small groups to join together on a Shared-Ship basis for a fantastic day of hospitality on Tuesday 4th August and places cost £255 per person (+ VAT).
Welcomed on board at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, your guests will enjoy a thrilling day out on the water. There will be plenty of time to sail the tall ship and to watch some of the Cowes Week race action. The timing is down to you - maybe a full day or an afternoon and evening. The highlight of the week is the magnificent firework display on the Friday night when the myriad of small boats jostling for position to see the display make for a very animated evening!
Red Sky Sailing can also offer additional features for your day including race commentators, official programmes, RIB rides, live bands and other entertainment.
