TRUSTED BY THE BEST
I can whole-heartedly recommend Clipper Events as one of the best corporate sailing firms I have experienced. Its round the world fleet makes for a unique and thrilling sailing experience. The yachts are perfect for team-building for both experienced and inexperienced sailors alike.
Thank you for a very well received two days last week. The event completely achieved what it set out to do, and I have to say, I think it was our most successful event so far. I was very impressed with your sailing team who displayed a courteous, quiet and authoritative leadership style which was well received and noted by the participants. I would be delighted to work with them again.
Any team requiring motivation or having difficulties bonding would benefit from a day like today, as everyone needs to know when to assert themselves or when to simply stand back and let others take the helm.
We were all amazed at the extent to which the exhilaration of racing and the level of teamwork required had bonded us. Even more impressive was the fact that, after mere hours of instruction, a group of people with very little sailing experience had joined forces to crew a yacht as if we had all been doing it for many years. The sheer excitement of the day, from the frantic build-up to executing maneuvers, to the much appreciated moments of relaxation and banter in between, had rendered us a tired but satisfied crew as we headed back to Gunwharf Quays.
