Mixing a boardroom meeting with some time on the water is a great way to inspire and reward your team.  Sailing requires clear communication, cohesion and planning, working together in a race environment to get the boat sailing fast requires a high-performing team that works together to get results both on and off the water.

Suitable for groups from 4 - 80 people.  

No previous sailing experience is required.

Make Your Boardroom More Productive

Our Boardroom to Boat package gives you access to boardroom facilities at one our beautiful marina-side locations. Alongside all the usual meeting room facilities, there’s an option of a gourmet catering package to keep your team watered and fed throughout the day. After your meeting – or maybe as a mid-session intermission – your team will board a yacht (or yachts) for either some high-action team building or a genteel cruise out on the Solent. We will tailor your sailing experience to fit your requirements and create a bespoke and personalised itinerary.

After your time on the water, return to the boardroom (or bar!) for a debrief on your sailing experience and transfer your learning to the efficient running of your business.

"Sailing a race yacht with the same people you've just had a board meeting with really creates and cements relationships"

Your Day

Your day will consist of an element of sailing, and an element of shorebased traditional meeting or conference.  This allows you important time, shoreside, to discuss key business issues in a traditional setting (meeting room, food and beverage, audio visual, presentations etc.)  The sailing element will be tied into your day alongside your meeting, and will be tailored exactly to you making sure your people leave the day having taken the business message on board, and acted it out in some sense on the water.
