Corporate day sail

Our corporate day sail package offers a very full sailing experience.  A full day on the water is a great way to get to know your clients.  If you are treating your own staff to a day of luxury sailing it will give them a chance to bond.  Sailing not only impresses people, it brings them together.

Spending a day on one of our yachts will be a day to remember.  Your day starts with a safety briefing, followed by coffee and pastries.  After casting off you’ll gently move through the beautiful Ipswich waterfront, heading for the lock gates.  Once through the locks the River Orwell opens out into a surprisingly large expanse of gentle water.  Before much longer you and your guests will sail under the iconic Orwell Bridge.  This is a real ‘wow’ moment and offers a fascinating view of such a well known landmark.

One bank of the river on this part of the sail is a salt marsh; an area of special scientific interest.  You will see a diverse range of birdlife, including large, graceful wildfowl and smaller wading birds.  On the banks of the salt marsh you will be able to see Freston Tower standing watch over the river.  This six storey folly is thought to have been built in 1578, although the exact reason for the construction is something of a mystery.

At this point in the sail the other river bank includes the vast bank of ancient woodland known as Orwell Country Park.  Depending on tide times you may see the wide sandy river beaches popular with locals and visitors alike.

The River Orwell has inspired artists and authors since time began, including the author of Swallows and Amazons; Sir Arthur Randsome.  Sailing is a great way to immerse yourself in this area of outstanding natural beauty, while relaxing on board one of our luxury yachts.
