Team Building

Motivate your team and get out of the office!!

Sailing is The Ultimate Team Building Experience


For corporate entertaining or as an incentive to your staff and customers, yachting is second to none. Southern Cross Yachting specialises in both organising corporate regattas and entertainment and conducting management training and team building courses. Whether your company is large or small we can design a cost-effective program to benefit your business.

Corporate sailing could quite possibly be the very best team building activity on earth.

A day out on beautiful Moreton Bay is a great way to entertain clients, thank staff or build team camaraderie. A day out sailing will bring out their competitive spirit and inspire new ideas and teamwork.

Sailing is clean and environmentally friendly. Like so many business owners and corporate executives that have participated in our team building days, you will see the benefits of sailing far outweigh the static ‘lunch and speaker’ event.

Participants will learn:

  • Basic sailing and yacht handling skills while being allocated roles in the running of the yacht.
  • Be challenged outside of normal comfort zones
  • Experience a range of tasks on the yacht
  • Gain new understanding and respect for the workings of group dynamics
  • Have a fun time sailing on beautiful Moreton Bay!
  • Flexible packages and prices are available

Learn by doing

Our experienced and friendly skippers can teach your team the fundamentals of sailing a yacht. All team members will have a turn on trimming the sails, pulling lines, and skippering on the helm.

Participants will learn tacking and gybing, steering and understand the direction of the wind onto the yacht. Our skippers will tailor the level of skills training to suit the experience of the team.

Sailing simulates our environment at work – constant changes and ‘unknowns’ are thrown at the group who must adapt to deal and deal with the situation.

Learning to sail a boat well, around a course or in a fun competition puts the crew on board in a unique situation. They must learn new skills together as a group – solving problems and working together in a fun and challenging environment.

A great place to learn all things about sailing, experienced Captains who are only to happy to answer any and all questions, a great experience,

We were lucky enough to spend a day with Jamie on Moreton bay and can’t speak highly enough about it. Three of us with varied previous experience of sailing joined with a father and son to share in a day of learning the ropes. The day was tailored to our varied needs and at all times we were able to ask questions and glean experience from Jamie’s wealth of knowledge. We would highly recommend signing up for a course if you’re interested in getting back on the water after a hiatus. Thanks so much guys! It was a priceless day!

We cannot express how wonderful our experience was with Jamie . He is very professional and patient in teaching us how to handle our new acquisition. Whether you are a seasoned sailor or a novice, it’s well worth spending time with a calm and knowledgeable instructor from Southern Cross. Thanks Jamie
