Corporate Sailing - Activites  

What is Sail Training?

Sail training is an outdoor adventure activity. Its purpose is not to teach how to sail; it's principally to help them learn about themselves in a team environment, to discover hidden strengths and talents, to understand the value of others and of working as one of a team.

It requires an individual to confront many demanding challenges, both physical and emotional.  

It is an activity that inspires and develops self-confidence and responsibility, an understanding and acceptance of others whatever their social or cultural background and a willingness to rely on the team work of your fellow crew members.

Adopting a consultative approach we work closely with our clients. Making sure we achieve the goals and objectives of the event.

The nature of sail training makes it ideal for team building. All the people on the boat have to co-operate to sail the boat, everyone team member has a role and with our experienced instructors we can ensure that no one person 'dominates'.

It is completely removed from the politics of the normal work place environment, its outdoors, clean and with a 'Breath Inspiring' view
