Sailing & Windsurfing Team Building Event days offer a fantastic opportunity for team bonding and reward days at our excellent facilities just west of London.
We can offer various options to get your team out on the water and enjoying themselves at our excellent facilities just west of London close to Heathrow airport near Ashford on our huge London 500 acre reservoir. A whole day of sailing or windsurfing, a morning meeting with an afternoon of activity, or an evening sailing or windsurfing session… Let us know what you’d like to do and we’ll do our best to provide!
Dinghy Sailing Introduction (minimum of 2hrs) – The instructors will take the group through how to rig a simple dinghy, and go through land-based drills to introduce the basic techniques for how to sail across the wind and turn the boat around by “going about”. On the water, the instructors will coach the group and by the end of the session everyone should be able to sail roughly where they want to, and be ready to compete in a basic race.
Windsurfing Introduction (minimum of 2hrs) – The instructors will run through basic techniques on a land-based simulator and then get the group out on the water practising. By the end of the session everyone will hopefully be able to windsurf about across the wind. Definitely the sport for those who like the water!
Mini Regatta Session (2hrs) – Once everyone is competent enough to sail across the wind we can organise some simple racing to add in an element of competition. Depending on the group size, this can be with everyone in their own boat or as short and sharp relay races.
Gentle Sail (up to 2hrs) – For those in the team who are less confident in the water or who don’t want to get wet, we can have an Instructor or Assistant Instructor sail a larger boat such as a Sport 16 or RS Vision with up to 3 people on board.
Powerboat Tuition – Learn the basics of how to drive a powerboat with a qualified and experienced Powerboat Instructor on board.
Catamaran Joyrides (20mins per group) – One of our high-wind alternatives! Have an instructor sail a Catamaran with up to two people aboard and go screaming across the reservoir at high speed!
Whilst our water-based activities provide learning opportunities and challenges both individually and as a team, we can also facilitate land–based team–building activities
Our watersports team can deliver a variety of fun, land–based exercises that will get participants working together, improving communication and team-work. These can be included within the normal cost of a corporate watersports day.
The large grassy area at the foot of the reservoir provides ample space for a whole variety of land–based games⁄challenges. We can arrange more extensive team–building and communication exercises by contracting in specialists in the corporate communication and team–building industry. This also extends our maximum group size to around 50pax. Give us a call on 01753 683990 with your particular requirements.
