Why Southampton Sailing Week?

As a keen Sailor and entrepreneur Chris Rees, noticed that so many people who have lived in Southampton their entire lives had never had the opportunity to go out Sailing, which as a coastal city was shocking! 

He also found another issue through attending networking events, which was that managers and business owners were struggling to build relationships both within their team and with their clients.

Then Southampton Sailing Week was born! As an opportunity to get more people to experience Sailing and build relationships on the water that then continue in offices and boardrooms.

Since then we have seen three editions of Southampton Sailing Week with each being bigger and better than the last. In 2019 Twenty-Seven Yachts headed out across the three days bathed in beautiful Sunshine!
