Sailing The Ultimate Team Building Experience
Motivate your team while you have fun, learn the ropes onboard racing yachts and see the results of true team work in action. EastSail hosts corporate and community groups aboard its fleet of sailing yachts for half-day instruction and regattas under the guidance of highly qualified EastSail skippers. It’s the perfect way to experience Sydney Harbour, hands-on, learn new skills and foster strong bonds among your team or clients.
Award winning EastSail is located in Rushcutters Bay, only minutes from Sydney’s CBD and the centre of Sydney Harbour. Established in 1983, EastSail is the leader in Regatta and Team Building Events and with 30 sailing yachts and motor cruises we are Sydney’s largest charter yacht company.
Our sport is clean, non-polluting and environmentally friendly. Like so many corporate executives and small business owners that have participated in our regattas, you will see the benefits of sailing far outweigh the static ‘lunch and speaker’ event.
Format: 3 hours of sailing aboard our luxury performance fleet, an experienced skipper and enjoyable course taking the best harbour views. Sit back, relax and take in the spectacular views from a unique vantage point, or get involved, steer the boat, trim the sails and help in the tactics!
Regatta Pricing valid to Oct 2021 30 - 150 persons $199pp
Price includes GST, yachts and skippers, welcome and team grouping, harbour course race instructions, safety briefing, wet weather gear, start boat, debrief and race presentation.
The Platinum Regatta is designed for corporations as a training tool for executives, corporate clients or stakeholders. Our Race Director will ensure all aspects of your needs are met in the bespoke design of the sailing experience; from leadership, team bonding, team work and competition. We place a lot of effort to ensure the event is a very worthwhile investment on your part, we fully understand that time out of the office needs to be well spent, informative and enjoyable. We will work with your Event Manager and draft the days experience for your review and acceptance. Our Platinum Regatta is as individual as the weather, wind and tides of the day!
Each yacht’s skipper / coach is an experienced professional, they have been training corporate teams for many years and understand the need to get the most from their crew in the time allotted. The Platinum format has less crew aboard each yacht in order for them to be pushed harder to achieve the desired outcome.
Our Race Director is chosen from our cohort of sailing Olympians or sportspeople that have succeeded in achieving amazing results while best utilising their team and network. Our Race Directors are inspirational people that are involved from the minute your team comes to Eastsail and when they are farewelled. They will pin point the best achievers at the prize presentation and note others that have tried their best and showed individual quality performance.
Format: 3 hours of sailing aboard our luxury performance fleet with lower passenger numbers aboard, bespoke race planning and integration with your HR needs, an experienced skipper and enjoyable course taking the best harbour views. Sit back, relax and take in the spectacular views from a unique vantage point, or get involved, steer the boat, trim the sails and help in the tactics!
