Corporate Sailing Events

Sailing is a very effective, flexible, dynamic and cost effective tool that can be tailored to your requirements. You can use a sailing trip for corporate hospitality, teambuilding, employee moral building or networking. Every year more and more companies are discovering the benefits of corporate sailing days, so why don’t you join them? Below is a brief over view of each area sailing can bring benefits for you and your company:

Team Building – These trips are specifically designed to help improve a team’s efficiency. Sailing has long been a popular teambuilding activity involving everybody on the boat and helping to break down barriers.

Regattas – Whether it’s serious or friendly, a regatta will not only provide plenty of fun but is also a great team building activity for every-body involved. It can be run as a multiday event to provide more networking opportunities.

Entertainment – If you’re looking to impress a potential client, clinch a contract or you want to reward your employees we have a database full of companies willing to whisk you away for an unforgettable day at sea.

 

Team Building

Team Building Events

We can help you create, strengthen, develop and ultimately transform your team, whether it’s an established, merged or entirely new group of people. Team building is a valuable tool for any business, big or small and will improve your teams efficiency, it is an investment you should be making if you want to push your company further and achieve your teams true potential.

Our tailored team building packages can either be bold and brash team building events, or they could be suitable ones, such as corporate regattas where everybody learns to work together through the act of sailing. With all of our trips we will talk to you and in cases of large events potentially meet face to face to discuss what you are specifically looking to get out of the session on the water.

• Communication skills
• Problem solving
• Decision making
• Leadership
• Process efficiency
• Bolster confidence
• Team work with a range of personnel
• Breaking down and overcoming barriers
• Hidden potentials of employees

Networking Days

Networking Sailing events

After a short burst of excursion, sailing offers plenty of time for mingling in a new and often alien environment. Sailing is one of the greatest forms of Networking for any business.

Over the last couple of years sailing has started to boom in popularity among many corporations as a form of networking and building links between individuals and suppliers or customers who may deal with each other on a regular basis but never meet face to face.

This is a chance to get rid of the barriers and labels brought on by work clothing that you get at most corporate networking events and take people into an often alien environment. Here they can talk, mingle and form business relationships that you can use further down the line to improve the efficiency of the respective organisations.

 

With over 7,500 yachts available all over the world we can cater for any budget, whether you’re looking for a couple of keelboats for a relaxed evening or Maxi round the world racing yacht with your own personal hostess and catering team.
