Take the helm with your team during a sailing initiation at sea
Introduce your business partners and customers in the sport of sailing
Your guests will be introduced to the ins and outs of sailing in no time so that they can perform the various tasks on board and reach the set destination. Just like in business, teamwork and flexibly responding to changing situations are crucial for running a sailing ship! For most of people, the sea is an unknown environment, what will give an boost to the team spirit!
Upon embarkation, the participants are briefed on sailing in general, different nautical terms, the division of tasks,… after which the fleet collectively puts out to sea. The professional skipper who is always on board provides the necessary oral instructions and lets the participants sail the yacht themselves under his supervision. Your guests will hoist the sails, tack, use the GPS and take the helm, taking into account the current, waves, sandbanks, ... Each team on every yacht is subdivided into 3 smaller teams so that each guest is allotted particular tasks (steering, setting the sails, navigating). Each post will have to learn to cooperate and coordinate correctly with each other so as to navigate the boat to the right destination. Posts are regularly switched so that everyone can acquire all skills.
Our sailing yachts are between 40 feet (12.5 metres) and 64 feet long and accommodate between 8 and 14 people. Such boats will lend a great deal of style to your event as they are considerably larger than “ordinary” yachts (usually measuring only 8 to 9 metres). In addition, such large yachts are less weather sensitive and meet the highest standards to instruct your people safely and in all weather conditions.
On board we provide snacks, fruit and various soft drinks. The return to the harbour is celebrated with a glass of Monopole Heidsieck Silver Top champagne for everyone. As an option, we can also provide premium quality oysters and/or seafood to accompany the champagne…
