Team Building Events

What does your company do for team building?

If your next corporate meeting or convention happens to be in San Diego, or if you’re a local company, we have an exciting team building option for your organization- a San Diego Sailing Regatta!

The sailing regatta is designed for all types of people and no prior sailing experience is required.  With capacity for up to 150 people, each team of 6 sailors will be led by a professionally licensed Coast Guard Captain. Immediately following an introduction and safety briefing, each group will have an opportunity to learn the terminology and crew positions before practicing together as a newly formed sailing team. Positions aboard the yacht include the navigator, time-keeper, mainsail trimmer, port jib trimmer, starboard jib trimmer, and the driver. After practice, all boats will line up for the most exhilarating part of the race, the start!

Sailing takes preparation, communication, and execution to achieve a common goal. On a sailboat, the only constant is change so adjusting to varying conditions is the only way to succeed (sound familiar?). Fine-tuning the sails, correcting for the current, and anticipating the next wind shift are vital and necessary skills for victory. Racing is fun and provides valuable lessons that can be applied to everyday professional and personal development. Let’s break down the office structure for an afternoon and show you how sailing is one of the best business analogies there is.

Yachts from Beneteau and Catalina are very comfortable and stable. The flat, protected waters of San Diego Bay keep all passengers dry and seasickness is never an issue with our team building events. All the crew will enjoy views of Harbor Island, Shelter Island, Coronado Bridge, Seaport Village, Downtown skyline, Aircraft Carriers, sea lions, and the occasional dolphins. Sailing in San Diego is a year around venture so call or email us today for to schedule your group for a San Diego sailing team building event. Harbor Sailboats has hosted over 1,000 companies big and small from all parts of the globe.

“We had such a wonderful time!  It was a truly unique experience for our group since we are restricted to our office almost every day.  I know that all thirteen of our teams were very impressed with out captains and the quality of the boats…my team had Aaron who was funny yet did an amazing job explaining how things worked and why.  And he was incredibly patient.  Overall, it was well put together and everyone was really pleased with the outcome.We cant wait to do it again next time we are in San Diego.”
