SailTime Europe opens its new Hamble base
SailTime Europe is pleased to announce the launch of its new base at Hamble Point
Marina. The base offers new and existing members the chance to enjoy the Solent,
one of the UKs top boating destinations. Said to be the centre of the UK yachting
scene, Hamble is only a short journey away from most of the South of England.
The new base will be managed by SailTimes Phillip Holroyd Smith. Appointed as
SailTime Hambles Base Manager, he is also SailTime Corporates Business
Phillip Holroyd Smiths role is to grow SailTime Corporate as a separate division of
SailTime Europe, offering boating experiences to a range of businesses and
corporations throughout the UK and abroad. He will also manage the boats at
Hamble Point Marina, which will include both sail and power boats, and develope the
Hamble memberships to create a new network of members.
Holroyd Smith comes with a wealth of experience in sales, corporate events and
business development as well as years of sailing and racing experience. For the last
seven years, he grew his company Impression Sailing and Events Group by
organising large regattas and corporate sailing experiences, and also by taking the
company away from on-the-water events to land-based corporate activities. This
knowledge will enable Philip to ensure that SailTime Corporate offers the best
possible experience for corporate members and their guests.
SailTime Europe expands with new offices and appointments
Phillip said I was really impressed with the SailTime programme and what the
company is able to offer to its members at a fraction of the price that it would
normally cost. I can see huge potential for SailTime to develop and grow both at its
new base in Hamble and through SailTime Corporate. By implementing a complete
sales strategy I hope to be able to offer SailTime and its members new opportunities
and to take the company into new market areas.
Another new SailTime base will also open in the near future at Lymington, and Sarah
Collinson has been promoted to Base Manager of both the upcoming SailTime
Lymington and existing SailTime Poole base.
John Bostock, SailTime Europe Managing Director, said, Sarah has been a huge
part of the SailTime team since she started with us helping to launch SailTime
Training, which is now the largest RYA training school in the UK and were delighted
to promote her from SailTime Training Manager to her new role as Base Manager.
As SailTime is expanding and employee roles are changing, Sarah was the perfect
person to take over the management of both the existing Poole and soon-to-be
Lymington base as she knows the business, our Owner Members, and Members
