Our Sunsail corporate team building programmes are tailored to the precise requirements of your business and are designed to facilitate the transfer of team building skills and tactics learned on the water back to the office.
Sunsail offers one day or overnight corporate programmes. The overnight option includes dinner in the relaxed environment of the Portsmouth Harbour Yacht Club with a motivational speaker selected with the needs of your company in mind. Guests then sleep aboard their yacht before embarking on an exciting and challenging day at sea.
The sailing element is the same whether the overnight package is taken or not. The teams will work on building high performance through the balancing of task, team and individual.
A racing module will focus everyone’s attention on matters of planning, delegation and motivation, while fun cruising gives everyone an opportunity to put their new found skills into practice.
A Sunsail team building programme includes a review of individual and team performance to show how the lessons learned at sea can be implemented at work.
