Team Building Events

TEAM BUILDING events are a great way to build up team cohesion and to develop stronger team relationships. Face to face time in this day and age, especially in the open air of stunning Sydney Harbour, is critical for the efficiency and effectiveness of a work force. 

OUR REGATTA'S are fun, safe and exciting with groups being broken up into teams ranging from 7-15 people (we can cater for up to 400 people!)

CORPORATE REGATTAS  follow a similar format and are the perfect way to entertain CLIENTS visiting our beautiful SYDNEY HARBOUR or to increase team cohesion, efficiency and morale. We like to be as flexible as possible for our corporate clients, meaning we can cater to any of your unique requirements. 

TEAM WORK  is critical when racing a sailing yacht. Teams quickly learn the importance of Team Work and Communication, with our Skippers onboard to encourage everyone's participation. There is great camaraderie on board each yacht, with every crew member pulling their weight.

SAFETY  all of our Team Building Events conduct a safety briefing followed by crew role allocation and team practice..then the racing begins.

Ideal For Good for an icebreaker for a new team or indiviudal clients to get to know each other Effective for improving group culture and developing leadership and communication skills Combining the best bits about yachting - a Team Building sailing regatta followed by some time at anchor to rest and relax with some catering and beverages Fun themed event that combines racing with orienteering. Gets all guests involved but not necessarily physically with the crewing duties. Teams have to think fast and act fast! Same as for the Point to Point Regatta format.  Ideal for those that have been sailing before or even racing and looking for something different combining skill, team work and leadership skills all in one.
