We were contacted by Polarstar and tasked to provide a 1 day Corporate sailing event for their 10 most senior staff on Friday 9th December 2016.
We split them into 3 teams with each team having a Sales, Admin and Operations representatives. After several rigging and theory lessons the teams were pitted against each other, in rigging competitions and 5 Quick-Fire races to highlight importance of teamwork.
We had a fabulous breeze of 8 knots and the 10 staff (7 guys and 3 girls, aged between 28 to 44) had a super morning of sailing before enjoying a great lunch provided by the Club's Restaurant and Bar. Lunch was concluded by an upbeat "fines meeting" and shooters led by company CEO.
The afternoon was spent doing a leisurely destination sail to one of the many bays, having swims and cold watermelon.
By the end of the day we transformed a group of employees into a team through ths shared sailing experience.
