The Clipper fleet has become increasingly popular for corporations who acknowledge the synergies between success in the boardroom and success on the water and who wish to stand out from their competition by offering stakeholders more than the average sailing experience. The Clipper yachts create a huge visual impact on the water, providing a perfect branding platform and creating a lasting impression on clients or employees on board.
Clipper Events' sailing days and regattas are designed to promote teamwork, team bonding and team performance, all of which are vital for business development. Our fleet of ten 68-foot, three 60-foot and our new fleet of 70-foot yachts offer a unique platform for our clients and their guests to experience the thrill of big boat sailing. Taught by professional sailors, our guests, some of whom have never sailed before, soon learn to work together and become a cohesive sailing team. Discover the excitement of yacht racing when you charter two or more of our identical Clipper yachts.
The morning training session will focus on coaching from our professional skipper and crew who show demonstrate the equipment on board, deliver a safety briefing and teach the basic principles of sailing, all the while encouraging guests to get hands on and sail the boat themselves.
After the morning training the team should be forming well, with each member becoming comfortable with the tasks needed to keep the yacht making good ground. Each team member should be learning how their actions will help the rest of the team, and will be working together to hone their skills ensuring the boat performs well.
After the morning session the crew will serve a delicious racing lunch on board, maximising the time on the water and discussing the morning's experiences and afternoon objectives with the team.
In the afternoon teams put their new-found sailing knowledge to the test in a practical exercise – a series of races around a set course. Guests rise to the challenge of building a winning team, working closely together in pursuit of a common goal.
Your team does not need to have any sailing experience as they will be taught by our professional skippers and mates who are experienced in training people of all abilities. We usually have people with a mix of sailing know-how attending our events from novice to keen sailors.
We look forward to working with you to tailor your team building event to your own specific needs. Clipper Events offers a unique opportunity for your team to learn about themselves in a very different environment. Please view our suggested itinerary and frequently asked questions.
Prices from £158 per person, per day (prices based on twelve guests per boat, whole boat charters apply, all prices are plus VAT).
Please contact us to discuss your event requirements. We can also personalise your event for you, organising everything beyond your day’s sailing to include branded team clothing, unique venue hire, gourmet catering and much more.
I wanted to express my thanks and those of NetEvidence’s management team for the great day we had at this year’s After Hours Cup. Taking a whole yacht in this year’s event made for an excellent team building exercise for all.
NetEvidence believes that the quality of the relationships formed and reinforced more than justifies the cost. In comparison to holding a trade show where we gain many leads that deliver little, this targeted form of marketing delivers a lot both directly and indirectly.
I run the Accenture Yacht Club and have done a lot of sailing including attending many of corporate sailing days and I have also organised many client sailing days for Accenture. I can whole-heartedly recommend Clipper Events as one of the most best corporate sailing firms I have experienced. Their round the world fleet makes for a unique and thrilling sailing experience. The yachts are perfect for team-building for both experienced and inexperienced sailors alike because their size means there is a lot of space for those learning the ropes yet enough exciting action - and a rare opportunity to sail on such a large vessel - to satisfy those who sail regularly. These boats are better suited to this type of event than most yachts.
Thank you and the gang very much for a very well received two days last week. The event completely achieved what it set out to do, and I have to say I think it was our most successful event so far.
I would be delighted to work with them again.
