A great challenge for your team!
Instruction will be given by our professional skipper who will set clear goals for the day. Assisted where necessary by the skipper your
team will be expected to complete their tasks using all available aids on the boat. Each member of the team will have the opportunity to trim sails
as well as steer the boat. No previous sailing experience is required.
These days provide an unsurpassed 'out of office' environment for a group to develop Team Spirit.
Sailing a fifty foot boat effectively requires your team to work together in a practical sense. These days are a great leveller and allow your team valuable time away from the pressures of the work environment to enhance team cohesion.
At the end of the day we are happy to provide a debriefing where we reflect on your team work and achievements.
