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 certified Captain who will accompany, challenge and direct the team during this three hour event (Orientation sail followed by three 40 minute races). Crew members will rotate through the different aspects of handling the vessel, while working together like a well-oiled machine. You will be taught how to achieve proper sail trim, master the maneuvers of tacking and jibing and strategize about how to get to the finish line first. The sun, sea and the picturesque background of the Santa Ynez Mountains will certainly make this a photo opportunity of a lifetime, all while unifying your team.

Empower Your Staff with New Confidence

  • Challenge old boundaries, build trust and tear down old fears by working together as a well-oiled machine.
