strch-1If you fancy a stag do with a little bit of a competitive edge, then look no further than our two yacht racing package. We’ll provide you with the chance to pit your wits against each other out on the race course and also lay on a pair of perfectly matched cutting edge racing machines to ensure that racing is a truly exhilarating experience.

If you’re a real speed freak, then our pair of Elan 450s should be right up your street. One glance at the extreme lines of these sleek thoroughbreds and you know that you’re in for a treat. These are lightweight flying machines; fleet footed and enormously enjoyable to sail. Yet it is when you hoist that big asymmetric kite that the adrenaline truly starts to flow. Launch her off a decent size wave off the Isle of Wight and there’s every chance to indulge in a spot of high speed surfing. An alternative option is amatch up between our Hanse 505 and 54. These boats are still quick but offer that extra bit of space and luxury.

Whichever pair of yachts you go to, you will end up with a pair of beautifully matched flyers and we’ll throw in a pair of expert racing skippers plus crew who will provide coaching, tips and tricks as you try to gain an advantage over your rivals. there is nothing to beat the thrill of a close fought tacking duel and this is your chance to treat the lads to the ultimate racing experience as you rattle through the tacks and roar down the waves at high speed.

Don’t worry though, there’s ample time for a spot of relaxation and the evenings are devoted to serious partying. The fun starts on the first evening when you arrive in the yachting Mecca of Hamble. This pretty little village is crammed with many of yachting’s premier watering holes and you’ll be able to soak up the atmosphere of a racing weekend before heading for a curry and then more drinks. On Saturday night, the action switches to Cowes, the undisputed home of yachting and also home to a tasty selection of pubs, clubs and top notch restaurants. During the yachting season, this place is absolutely buzzing and this is your chance to be at the heart of the action.

An alternative option, which pitches you right into the heart of the action is to participate in one of the high profile races that take place over the summer. Experience the madness and mayhem of being part of the hundreds of yachts that take part in the incredible Round the Island race in June or get in the mixer at the amazing celebration of sailing that is Cowes Week in August. Call us to discuss the options.
