Corporate Sailing Regattas
& Team Building
Participate in a Miniature America's Cup!
Get ready to experience an exhilarating regatta on the brilliant Pacific Ocean. Learn the true meaning of accountability while you are deep within the elements of America’s Riviera – Santa Barbara! Each vessel includes a professional skipper who will accompany, challenge and direct the team during the three short 30 minute races. Each crew member will be responsible for different aspects of handling the vessel, while working together like a well-oiled machine. As you strive for team success, participants will be taught how to achieve proper sail trim, master the maneuvers of tacking and jibing and strategize about the angles on how to get you to the finish line first. Sun, sea and the picturesque background of the Santa Ynez Mountains will certainly make this an event to remember for years to come, all while creating the perfect team building experience.
