Wessex Heartbeat are pleased to be the 'Charity Partner' of Southampton Sailing Week - Regatta21 organised by Rees Leisure and are inviting enthusiastic sailors to join them onboard a new Wessex Heartbeat branded Sunsail 41.0 Yacht on either Thursday 8th July or Friday 9th July.

The day will begin with a light breakfast at the 5 star Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa in Ocean Village before heading down to the pontoon where the Wessex Heartbeat yacht will be waiting.

After a team brief and kitting up with a branded polo shirt, we will head out alongside the other yachts into Southampton Water to hoist the sails and get some practice in before the racing begins.  It will then be down to the teams new found skills out on the water to determine who will win.

All racing is under the guidance of a fully qualified Skipper and First Mate who will be there to teach you the ropes and to ensure the team have a safe and great experience.

Places are now available for Team Wessex Heartbeat Crew at £265 per person but are limited and are on a first come, first served basis and can be booked through Tina Richardson at [email protected]

Wessex Heartbeat Chief Executive John Munro said "We cannot wait to get back on the water this year and continue our connections with amazing local businesses and people.  More importantly, we want to continue to raise awareness on how people can best look after their heart with exercise. What better way than a day sailing, to really get the heart pumping."
