SAIL TRAINING unlike sail racing or sail cruising is a form of TeamBuilding, Leadership and Character Development program first created by the Outward Bound School in the darkest hours of WWII . the term Outward Bound is used when a ship leaves the safety of the harbour into the unknown risks and storms . https://sailtraininginternational.org/

We have perfected the art of Sail Training onboard our 5 Sailing Ketches. ( 50 pax ) ( Sail Training International requires fore and aft rigged sailboats to qualify ) Whether it is Leadership, TeamBuilding, VUCA, Change Management, Personality Profiling, Onboarding or Core Values Assimilation … we will customise the right activities onboard with the right dosage of Challenge and Perceived Risk .
