Sailing is a special sport.
Each member on board assumes a set of responsibilities. Most of the times this responsibilities interfere with tasks of other crew members and need cooperation. At a certain moment, it is important to follow the instructions of a colleague and right on the next moment assume leadership. Just like in business, individual initiative and cooperation are crucial.
And also like in the competitive market, a crew has to adapt continuously and exceed the conditions of the environment that surrounds it.
Our activities focus in teamwork on an extremely dynamic and demanding environment, where constant change of conditions require action and fast decision. It is undoubtedly a challenge but at the end of the day your team will certainly be a better team!
Sailing also allows us to build and outdoor activity not so sportive but more into recreation. If your group is not into sport or if your main goal relates more to “networking”, reward your clients or just simply enjoy a different day with your team we may just simply choose another support (a classic sailing boat with catering on board, for example) adapting goals and the skipper’s intervention.
According to your main goals for the event we may choose different support-format combinations taking always as main theme sailing.
If you’re looking for a more sportive event in which teamwork and communication are fundamental then we suggest the “Teambuilding” format and cruising sailing boats. If your main goals are “Networking” or “Client Entertainment” probably the best solution will be a program on board of a classic sailing boat in which “recreation/tour” is more important.
Sailing is exceptionally a great support for team building activities. We work in close collaboration with each company to define a set of precise objectives to embody in the program, wether to improve communication between teams or strengthening collaborative links. Everything is done in a very relaxed environment. Usually team building events include a regatta/course previously defined with certain objectives, competition between boats, briefing and de-briefing. Crew/Groups can be previously defined according to the main goals of the activity.
