Team Building

The programme serves as a unique style Team building exercise for up to 18 refugees from the Daily Grind, as rehab for addicted binge-workers, as an escape out of the claustrophobic concrete canyons of the City, and as a breath of fresh air away from the toxic emissions of City Life.

Participants are formed into three Watch groups, whose job together is to guide us safely to our destination.

Team spirit is built when each of the three watch groups cooperates intimately in navigating a large sailing ship to her safe destination. We are literally “all in the same boat”. Watch groups are rotated every two hours to give all the whole experience.

Captain Blake, the cousin of Sir Peter Blake, NZ’s Premier sporting hero, is an Instructor with the Australian Yachting Federation, licensed to teach up to Offshore Yachtmaster level….a little too much to aspire to in a single day out on the water….but the benefits of working together as a team in a real-life, hands-on experience will be obvious….and more likely to gain the approval of the Chief Financial Officer.
