Team Sailing Instruction

The team sailing instruction activity is perfect for small groups to learn new skills together including how to work cross-functionally, solve problems together, and step out of their comfort zones!

Over the course of four hours, your team boards a luxury sailing yacht for a brief introduction to sailing. The instructor begins with basic sailing concepts and terms, then each participant cycles through the various crew positions on the boat, learning each one.

Each team member has a chance to act as the helmsperson, giving commands and solving problems as they put the boat through several maneuvers. This short introduction to sailing, aboard a performance boat, gives teams the opportunity to work together and use everyone’s skills– all while having fun and taking in great scenery in the process!

Team Building Exercise and Regatta

In this exercise, your team suits up for the exhilarating opportunity to participate in a real regatta on the water! This exercise is suitable for larger groups, as teams are assigned to multiple boats for an introduction to sailing and sailboat racing.

Over the course of five hours, the instructor on each boat provides the team a brief introduction to sailing with each of the participants working the various positions on the boat. Then, the fun really begins when the boats meet up for an informal race!

Each team chooses a helmsman who works with the instructor to lead the team across the finish line
