Sailing is rich with business parallels.
Sailing is an activity that succeeds with teamwork, communication, quick thinking, problem solving, and solid leadership. Sailing parallels the environment at work – constant changes and ‘unknowns’ are thrown at a group who must quickly adapt to deal and deal with the situation at hand. Like a sailing crew, your team is a group of people with a common goal. They depend on each other to produce successful outcomes, communicating constantly and informally to “get it done.”
Sailing is inclusive.
Think about it, golf isn’t much fun if you’re not a golfer. But with sailing, non sailors can enjoy both the voyage and participating as a crew member. No sailing experience is necessary. Our professional facilitators are experts at teaching sailing skills while keeping everyone safe.
Sailing is fun.
It’s hard not to have a big smile on your face while enjoying a good day on the water, marveling at the Chicago skyline with a cool breeze on your face. Sun, wind, motion, scenery – an absolute thrill!
