Sail to Reward Regatta

10 June 2024

The Sail to Reward Regatta is a new event to bring teams together from the hotel and hospitality sector to compete in a sailing regatta. It's the ultimate combination for a successful hospitality event:

  • a day of great racing
  • team building
  • networking
  • fun for your teams on and off the water
  • raising valuable funds for the Room to Reward Charity

The regatta is a one day event, staged from Ocean Village Marina and the Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa on the spectacular, modern fleet of Sunsail 41.0 yachts.

The winning team will be awarded the Mermaid Trophy, kindly sponsored by Mermaid Gin.
