How to Plan a Corporate Sailing Day: Tips and Tricks

Plan a corporate sailing day

Organising a corporate sailing event can be a fantastic way to boost team morale, foster collaboration, and create memorable experiences. Here are some tips on how to successfully plan a Corporate Sailing Day, ensuring your experience is both effective and enjoyable and leaves your stakeholders feeling, motivated, rewarded and inspired.

1. Set Clear Objectives

Define the purpose of your event. Whether it’s team building, client entertainment, or a reward for employees, having clear objectives will guide your planning and help measure success.

2. Choose the Right Location

Select a location that is easily accessible for all participants. The Solent, for example, offers stunning scenery and reliable sailing conditions, making it an ideal choice for corporate events.

3. Select a Reputable Provider

Partner with an experienced sailing event provider. Here at Britannia Events, we offer bespoke, tailored packages and professional crew, ensuring safety and a smooth experience.

4. Plan the Itinerary

Create a balanced itinerary that includes sailing time, breaks, and social activities. A mix of competitive sailing and relaxed networking time can cater to different interests and energy levels within the group.

5. Consider Catering

Good food and drinks can elevate the experience. Arrange catering that suits the event’s tone—whether it’s lunch on board followed by a casual BBQ at the Royal Southern Yacht Club or a laid back lunch ashore in Cowes at Coast, we can help you arrange a dining experience that enhances your experience.

6. Prepare for the British Weather! 

Weather can be unpredictable. But that shouldn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a successful day. Here at Britannia, we can provide your team with the appropriate sailing attire to ensure their day is still fun, and all of our skippers are experts in navigating the Solent, whatever the weather. 

7. Communicate Clearly

We can ensure your participants are provided with detailed information about the event, including what to wear, safety instructions, and the day’s schedule. Clear communication helps set expectations and ensures everyone is prepared.

8. Focus on Team Building

Incorporate team-building activities that require collaboration and communication. Sailing inherently promotes teamwork, making it the ideal event for promoting a strong team unit that can work together in sometimes stressful situations.

9. Capture the Moments

Hire a photographer or designate someone to capture photos and videos. These memories can be shared within the company and used for future promotional materials.

10. Gather Feedback

After the event, solicit feedback from participants to understand what worked well and what could be improved. This information is invaluable for planning future events.

By following these tips, you can organise a corporate sailing day that is not only enjoyable but also strengthens team dynamics and achieves your business goals.
