Build high performance teams on and off the water

Team building sailing days bring your team together

Our team building sailing events and team development programmes use the power of sailing a yacht to create better, more engaged teams. Yachts are like businesses, they don't get anywhere without a team working together.

The challenges of Covid have meant many teams have barely been together, with many people now still remote working. Sailing provides the ideal way to reunite teams in a safe, exhilarating, outdoor setting.

Sailing builds great teams

Our bespoke corporate sailing days are a fun way to enhance communication, collaboration and teamworking. They will deliver results that will be taken back to the office to take your business forwards. 

Prometheus can create team building sailing events tailored for your business. We can provide Olympic, round the world and World Champion sailors to share knowledge, coach and develop your teams.

We have the experience to cater for groups from small, local businesses to major multinational companies with events from one yacht to an entire fleet.

Team working yacht racing skills


How does sailing build effective teams?

Sailing has many parallels with the workplace.  Yacht racing is like a large physical and mental game of chess, but without a clearly defined board to play on. Your team will have no pre-set track or route to follow on the water...

...To win the race also requires them to make their best strategic decisions... against competitors making similar decisions and choices.
