Team Building

Corporate Team Building Events

We have years of experience with corporate sailing events. We will tailor your sailing event to the needs of your team:
  • We can organize a tightly structured event or provide a less structured event. Sailing allows your team to enjoy themselves and spend quality time together away from the stresses of the office.
  • Sailing on San Francisco Bay is an excellent way to build all aspects of your team.
  • A perfect way to strengthen relationships with key clients.
  • We can arrange Corporate Sailing Charters for parties of 6 to 60. All on one boat or with multiple boats for a racing regatta.
  • We have two fast, performance racing boats. It is much more fun to sail on fast boats that are well-maintained, responsive and designed to win.
  • Both Bay Wolf and Osprey are available for groups up to 24 passengers – Or use both boats for larger groups
3 Convenient Locations
  • Pier 40 San Francisco (next to AT&T ball park)
  • Jack London Square
  • Sausalito
Bay Wolf - Team Challenge
Bay Wolf is the perfect yacht for corporate team building. For up to 24 passengers, she is fast, stylish and fun to sail. All team members get a chance to steer and trim sails. Working together the boat moves quickly as we see the sights of the bay and pass others boats.
 
There is no better boat on San Francisco Bay. One recent CEO (May 2010) was so impressed with the trip for his senior management, that he booked the boat 2 days later for another trip and a 3rd trip for July 2010 and a 4th trip in October 2010 with his family. Nothing says quality like a customer who returns for four trips.

Multiple-boat Regattas (up to 100 people)
We have arranged several multiple-boat regattas which included a combination of sailing instruction, team-building and competition. We know all of the other charter boats on the Bay and work to arrange the best boats and captains for your event. Many of our client trips (listed on the right) involved multiple boats.

Angel Island Barbeque
We can arrange a team-building sailing event that concludes with a barbeque on Angel Island. We combine great sailing with excellent food and drink on the island. We have arranged wine-tastings, scavenger hunts, and hikes around this wonderful island. Call us if you are interested in a Angel Island Barbeque.
 
 
Team-Building Structure 
Our Corporate Team Building events focus on Communication, Problem Solving and Team Competition:
  • Communication:
San Francisco sailing builds effective communication. We will train each team member in different positions (trimming sails, steering, calling tactics, etc). Then we will change positions to let everyone have a chance at the different positions. The crew members' have fun while learning new skills.
  •  Problem Solving:
As the team develops skills on the boat we may begin drills such as Man-overboard (MOB) drills. In the case of the MOB drill, the team must retrieve a float dropped into the water with the boat under sail. This is a difficult task and often requires several attempts. Effective communication and problem solving are required.
  •  Team Competition:
Once the crew has learned some skills, then we go looking for other boats to race. For events of two boats or more, the final task is a race across the Bay. Bay Wolf is exceptionally fast and we often catch and pass many other boats.

We can arrange a tightly structured event with serious team-building race, or a more relaxed event that allows people to simply enjoy the scenery. On all trips everyone gets an opportunity to sail the boat. Both Captain Brian and Captain Kirk are experienced sailing instructors and we can teach anyone to sail.
 
Benefits: The benefits of sailing Bay Wolf on San Francisco Bay include effective communication and problem-solving that are important to all teams. Sailing is also a time with no outside distractions, allowing team-members to develop personal connections and bonding that will carry back to the work environment.
 
Enjoy sailing a fast racing yacht and also improve your team.
