Corporate Team Building

Corporate Team Building

Companies recognise that staff training is an investment in the future that pays immediate dividends in productivity & efficiency. For corporate entertaining or as an incentive to your staff and customers, yachting is second to none.

On a yacht, free from the influences of organisational culture & status, participants can develop the skills that make teams and leaders more effective. Our programs are flexible to suit your time schedule, group size & budget. Our experienced instructors are professional trainers and experts in their fields. Our programs emphasise safety, while being exciting & effective.

We can organise training from groups of 4 up to 30 or more. On either small racing keelboats or large racing catamarans, it depends upon the group size. Please call for more details.

No previous sailing experience is required.

Participants learn:

To operate in different & challenging circumstances

To identify their strengths & weaknesses

The roles of leaders & followers in building effective teams

To approach responsibilities with increased confidence & credibility

Effective Communication: active listening & constructive feedback

Timely decision-making

Effective use of available resources

To work effectively with different personalities

Wednesday Afternoon / Twilight Racing

Why not treat your staff or clients to an afternoon or evening of fun by entering a yacht in Royal Brighton Yacht Club races. These races are held each Wednesday afternoon and evenings (evenings during daylight savings) and are designed entirely for crews participating to enjoy themselves.

It is a ‘pursuit’ style event with the yachts start time depending on the speed and handicap of the yacht (smallest boats start first). The school has various sized yachts available depending on the size of the group.

The afternoon begins at 12.30pm leaving the marina for a short practice before the start. After the race we return to the yacht club for the presentation and a drink. Feel free to stay on for dinner.

The twilights begin at 5.30pm leaving the marina for a short practice before the start. After the race we return to the yacht club for the presentation and a drink. Feel free to stay on for dinner.

  • Up to 6-7 persons/yacht – up to 4 yachts available

If the weather is unsafe for sailing on the day the event will be postponed.
