Whilst there may be only one wining team, everyone is a winner, taking away an experience that will be talked about at the bar that night, the next day, week, month maybe even until next year when the experience can be relived.

Team Sailing

The stage is set for a showdown, teams are formed the competition is going to be hot! Team Sailing provides a great environment to heighten group interaction, communication, team bonding and team building in a dynamic, fun and safe environment.

Team Sailing has been developed as a great, fun team activity without the intensity of a full team-building program and is referred to as a “soft team building” activity that will provide a sense of achievement for all participants especially those who have not partaken in yachting previously.

Team Building

The warm waters of the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay provide a perfect year round training ground for an adventurous program. The program content is tailored to suit your businesses needs, objectives and goals.

The Team Building sailing program is intended to focus on the performance of individual and team skills in an experiential learning environment that promotes teamwork, communication, leadership, and change management to mention a few.

Yachting provides a natural vehicle for team based learning and bonding, a number of key crew positions on each yacht have to coordinate to successfully navigate and sail the yacht on a course to safely get to the planned destination or finish line.

Your staff will benefit and grow from the experience of this invigorating challenge in a fun and safe environment.

“Andrew was sensitive to the outcome we were after for the event and he facilitated the session accordingly – Thank You”. Mark Postles, Coast Chiropractic Kawana – Team Building Dinghy Event.

The Leadership Challenge

Arriving in the late afternoon for the first evening aboard the vessel, a briefing will be conducted to familiarise your team with the surroundings and set the seen for the next 48 hours of adventure. How those 48 hours unfold will be determined based on the goals and objectives of the event and the prevailing conditions.
Crew teams can be made up of up to 6 guests and a Skipper onboard. A total number of 12 guests can be accommodated per event on 2 yachts. A facilitator is recommended.

Dinghy Sailing Regatta

This is normally a Half-Day Event.
Your team is divided into crews to sail our stable sailing dinghies, they need to learn quickly how to work together to complete the course in the safe waters around the Maroochy Sailing Club on the Maroochy River. It’s very hands on, sometimes wet and an enormous amount of fun!

Custom Format

The custom format provides unlimited options in designing a program whether it is a one-day event or multiple days over several months, e.g. a 2hr session per week. With the assistance of a professional facilitator, the program design and execution can be tailored to suit the needs, objectives and goals of your business.
