2017 Solent Regattas and Events

There's lots going on here in the Solent in 2017 and our RIB's are available for hire by Photographers and Spectators or as Support boats to competing yachts.

Most regattas offer places for individuals or alternatively the whole RIB may be chartered. There are many other regattas and our RIBs are also available
- let us know the Regatta you want to be at and we will assist.

Some of the normal Events we attend are listed below, as an indication of price, depending upon the Regatta,
per person 'around £100' for photographers most races, RI is more - for whole RIBs £550 + for the day dependent upon
Regatta and numbers -
