TEAM BUILDING & RETREATS
Sailing for Success on the San Francisco Bay
How can sailing help your team or company be more successful? Simple: it’s unique, it builds critical business skills like trust, risk, delegation and communication and it’s really fun.
Many team building exercises are contrived and overused. Sailing on San Francisco Bay is unforgettable—and requires that you know what to do and work together to get it done. Now you can strengthen your team’s cohesion with the wind in your hair, the water beneath your keel and smiles on your faces.
Communication. Leadership. Risk-taking. Listening. Taking action. These are just some of the skills your team will refine during our on-the-water teambuilding outings.
Our retreats are open to sailors of every level and done on a range of boats from 35’-90’. They will bring your team to a new level of connection and understanding—all while learning the parts, principles and tactics of sailing on the most spectacular urban sailing ground in the world.
We’ll create a custom itinerary for your team that includes:
– Pre-sail talk about your learning objectives for the day
– Hands-on discussion of the parts and roles aboard the boat and all safety precautions
– Sailing past iconic landmarks like Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco cityfront
– Rotating through various on-board positions (helmsman, trimmer, navigator, lookout)
– Post-sail discussion (possibly over a cold beer), covering learnings from the day and how to apply them on the job
As powerful as team building is, sometimes what you really want is to treat your team to something unique and relaxing—a celebration of their accomplishments and hard work, a way to let them know they rock.
Our sailing offsites, which can accommodate up to 40 people, include:
– Optional pre-sail meeting at the clubhouse with your team (past year’s achievements, next year’s goals, group hugs…)
– Sailing on gorgeous, Coast Guard-licensed, fully-crewed sailboats on the San Francisco Bay
– Catered, gourmet, easy-to-eat meals
– Drinks and refreshments
– Opportunity to pause during the sail and appreciate, award or otherwise communicate to the team
– Completely customizable itineraries
Spare your team another cooking or wine-tasting event. Instead, treat them to an unforgettable experience. Contact us now to find out about our sailing team building and offsite retreats.
