Tailored to individual requirements, these events provide the perfect platform to encourage team skills, awareness, communication, management styles, strategic planning and leadership.  Nothing can compare with a group of individuals working together with a common aim to become one strong team.



 Sailing a yacht blindfolded requires precise
communication skills from the team

 It takes a strong team to achieve the best
results and sailing is an ideal platform
to get the best from your team.

Example of our team challenge sailing events in the UK

Team sailing events can be carried out over one day or as many days as required.

Here is an example of a 2 days team challenge event in the Solent, UK: - 

We will provide any number of yachts with fully qualified skippers who are experienced in working with corporate people and committed to meeting your own objectives. These events are highly rewarding and achieve the desired results.
For example, our 40' yachts will take up to 7 people per team and offer excellent accommodation on board.


These Challenge Events are highly enjoyable and designed to meet your specific requirements while focusing on the key areas of building strong and effective teams and developing the skills of the individuals taking part.

Building your team, your strengths and your success. 
 Highly rewarding for the individuals and the whole team. 
This is an interactive programme where the teams work closely together to achieve a common goal.

12.30 Lunch. This can be taken ashore or on board. At this time we discuss the morning's progress and give feedback.
The teams continue to build their strategies and improve their team skills to sail their yachts as skilfully as possible. This is the final preparation for the race tomorrow.
