Solent Challenge 2017

Solent Challenge 2017
Build your team on the water at our Solent Challenge 

The team sailing race will be held on the 31st August in Portsmouth. This event will include a practice race in the morning followed by the main event in the afternoon. 

A trophy will be awarded to the winning team. There will be stiff competition for the fourth DSUK Solent Cup; we are hoping that many teams/companies will enjoy this new exciting team building event that also helps raise much needed funds for DSUK. 

The capacity of the boat is 10, as there will be two Sunsail staff on board. 

The day includes Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. 

Event Location: Portsmouth

Event Date: 31/08/2017 to 31/08/2017


A boat costs £1800 for companies or groups of friends up to 10.
Individuals can enter at £180 per person and will be assigned to a crew.

Everyone will be encouraged to raise £50 in addition to the cost of the boat, helping us raise a total of £5000 (if 10 boats are filled). 

It may be possible to have fewer crew members than 10; however this will depend on the experience of the participants. The boat will still cost £1800.

If individuals or small companies wish to partake then we will endeavour to create a new team or place you on existing teams.
