On the boat as in the office.
This sailing cruise, which is part of the Sail and Team experience, has the power to transform simple colleagues into a winning team.
A sailing team building experience is one of the best outdoor training experience you can choose for your business team: taking a course on a sailing boat allows you to assess the participants’ aptitude for achieving personal and group goals, to increase cohesion among the members of the team and helps to bring out talents or any leadership attitudes. On the boat, as in the office, it is important to establish a clear definition of roles, so that everyone’s operations are perfectly coordinated: that’s why a sailing team building should be on the top of your priority list as a manager!

09:30 – 11:00
The sailing cruise starts with a theoretical session: gaits, maneuvers, adjusting the genoa and the mainsail. The issue of safety and roles is also addressed by introducing the first metaphors: the boat and its crew as the business company, with its rules and its potential.
11:30 – 14:00
You immediately put into practice what you just learned. First of all, let’s take a look at the weather – which in a business context is equivalent to evaluating the market in which you will operate and the ability to anticipate trends. Then, you go out into the sea, hoisting the sails and gaining confidence with the equipment. The roles are also established: there isn’t only the skipper, everyone in the crew has a role. In this way other metaphors are conveyed: the figure of the skipper is synonymous with leadership in guiding, motivating and managing a work team. The link between the different crew roles and company roles, teamwork and accountability for results is also very strongly at the base of the experience.
14:00 – 14:30
Snack break (on board)
14:30 – 16:00
Introduction of regatta techniques and rules: the start, the choice of the optimal route, the windward edge to reach the windward mark, the tack, downwind/stern navigation, the jibe, the finish.
All these concepts have the equivalent in a business company: the regatta techniques represent the comparison with the competition and the performance and sales results while the choice of the optimal route is nothing more than the effort that is made in the company to use in an optimal way resources and plan business objectives.
17:00 – 19:00
Briefing on the day, questions and explanations. Award ceremony.
