INCENTIVES, EVENTS AND OUTINGS
Refresh Client and Team Relationships
Sailing is the perfect outlet for instilling group interaction and building client relations. If your focus is sharing a fun activity everyone can participate in, rather than delving into the nuances of team building or leadership development, Offshore Sailing School will tailor a program to meet your desires. At all Offshore Sailing School locations, fleets of exciting Colgate 26 sailboats are available to refresh workplace activity and entertain clients. The feeling of wind in your hair and a little spray on your face will surely excite and restore a passion for life-changing adventures together.

For several years Hiscox, a leading specialty insurance company focusing on business markets, has held a Regatta Day to network with its clients at our Liberty Landing Marina base in Jersey City, NJ. This entertaining day on the water provides quality time with clients in a totally unique setting. Offshore Sailing School can do the same for you. Start your day with coffee and snacks and head out on the water with professional coaches for a morning regatta, then rendezvous ashore for a catered lunch, back out on the water for afternoon races, and finish the day with hors d’oeuvres, drinks and regatta awards. We will tailor the day to meet your goals, at any of our resort and metro-NY area locations.
Sailing R&R for Your Team
When your team shows signs of malaise or stress, work is building up and a little R&R is needed, bring them to Offshore Sailing School for a fun escape under sail. With a professional Offshore Sailing School instructor on each boat, they can participate in steering the boat and trimming the sails as little or as much as they like in a two hour or longer session.
If your company is based in or near the New York Metropolitan area, consider an event or regatta on the Hudson River from our locations in North Cove Marina or Liberty Landing Marina in Liberty State Park across the way in Jersey City. We will get your group sailing and working together in a morning or afternoon session with spectacular views of Manhattan York and Jersey skylines, a real adrenaline rush with just the sound of water and wind so close to city clatter.
Sail at Resort Meetings
If you are planning a meeting with clients, co-workers or employees at a resort destination, consider our beautiful locations in Florida and the British Virgin Islands. All can accommodate groups and meetings, with theme-based meals, beach activities and sailing, of course. Add a two-hour sailing break between or after your indoor meetings. We guarantee it will be the highlight of your trip, especially when you sail away from land where dolphins and manatees play. Here’s where you can add a sailing to your group event:
- South Seas Island Resort, Captiva Island, FL
- Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina, Ft. Myers Beach, FL
- Scrub Island, Spa & Marina, Scrub Island, British Virgin Islands
Reward and Motivate with Sailing
The most appreciated reward you can give to a key employee, or a client, is time on the water under sail. A two to five-day Learn to Sail course, with accommodations at one of our popular resort locations, empowers and invigorates those who love to learn something new outdoors. If you are charged with rewarding clients and creating incentives for employees, you will be thanked over and over if you give the gift of sailing. Whether it is a two-hour lesson or a comprehensive certification course, your employee and customers will return with amazing tales of how sailing has opened a whole new outlook on life.
Costs per person start at $150 for a two hour sailing escape, with each additional hour $75 per person. Regattas start at $299 per person for a half-day, $399 per person for a full day – with additional costs for meals, tents and bar. Packages including sailing instruction and accommodations are available at our destination resort campuses. Sailing is aboard our lively Colgate 26 sailboats or 43’ to 50’ cruising boats. At many of our locations, we can also take small groups out for sunset sails, when the true bliss of being aboard a beautiful yacht gliding through golden-hued seas becomes reality.
