PUT NEW WIND IN YOUR TEAM'S SAILS!
Set sail on the most fun and exciting team building competition in Southern California. Your teams will sail on luxury cruising sailboats on the sparkling blue Pacific Ocean. No sailing experience is needed. Each boat has a Coast Guard licensed skipper to train and coach your team before and during your race--but your team will steer and sail your own yacht.
Crews have hands-on experience to raise the sails, tack and jibe the boat in different directions, grind the winches, and trim the sails for maximum speed. Each person takes turns to steer the boat. Our team building sailboat races teach communication, cooperation, and synchronicity for successful teamwork together.
Races are held in the afternoons for best winds. A typical schedule includes lunch at the marina before the sail. Afternoon sails depart @ 1:00 PM. The first hour at sea includes hands on training in all positions, followed by the start of the sailboat race @ 2:00 PM. All boats will cross the finish line and return to the marina docks by 4:00-5:00 PM.
A trophy awards ceremony follows the sail over happy hour or dinner back at the marina. Each crew member of the winning boat receives a first place trophy for their victory. An optional debriefing over lessons learned at sea is also provided for your team. Lessons about staying on course, teamwork, communication, strategy and adapting to changing winds and sea are all applicable to success in the workplace.
