Corporate Events That Move the Dial

Energize your team, client group, club, or school with a unique offsite Bluewater event on the water! These recreational sailing events focus on sailing skills as a metaphor for great teamwork, respect, and communication skills needed on and off the water. Our professional captains lead these sessions and take care of all the details. Elevate teamwork in a truly memorable way like some of our past corporate clients: Disney, American Express, Virgin Atlantic, and Target.

Our entire team has been raving about it

Both groups truly enjoyed themselves and we loved both of our captains. From the initial phone call with Elliot all the way through to the end this was a fabulous experience and your entire team's level of service was exceptional every step of the way.

Strengthen Relationships, Improve Communication, and Elevate Teamwork with a Bluewater Offsite Event

Bluewater Sailing provides active recreational sailing events designed to energize your team and move the dial on improved communications and teamwork. 

It’s always great to escape the hustle and bustle of work-a-day life for some quiet time with your important colleagues. But we understand well that offsites often have specific goals in mind beyond a day at the beach. Bluewater is expert at tailoring team events to attain your specific offsite goals while delivering a memorable experience your team will recall for years to come.  

Find out how Bluewater can create a program tailored to deliver your offsite goals.  Contact us today!

Team Building 1 – Sailing

Level: Beginner

Great For: Team Building

Sample Four Hour Itinerary: 
  11:15AM Arrive at Bluewater Sailing for paperwork and pre-voyage briefing
  11:45AM Board vessel, captain briefing, departure
  12:00 to 4:00 PM Sailing in Santa Monica Bay, captain and crew collaborate on building skills toward offsite goals
  4:00PM Return to dock and adjourn 

Our professional instructors will work with your staff, utilizing sail education to develop and reinforce teamwork skills. Task setting and goal accomplishment techniques will be cultivated as individuals prepare to take a boat off the dock and go sailing, often for the first time and usually with everyone starting from the same base of experience. Improved communications skills will be required to organize and direct fellow team members in this new environment that will certainly require some “out of the box” thinking. The crew will be able to develop and bond under new conditions that will challenge them to adopt new and successful techniques of operating with their coworkers.

Team Building 2 – Racing

Level: Intermediate

Great For: Teamwork and Communication

Sample Four Hour Itinerary: 
  11:15AM Arrive at Bluewater Sailing for paperwork and pre-voyage briefing
  11:45AM Board vessel, captain briefing, departure
  12:00 to 4:00 PM Sailing in Santa Monica Bay, captain and crew collaborate on building skills toward offsite goals
  4:00PM Return to dock and adjourn 

These sessions are similar to the sailing session described above for each individual boat but are designed to be a bit more competitive between two or more boats. After some introductory training with boat handling, sailing and racing concepts, our experienced captains will assist your teams to develop strategies for success in a new type of competitive environment. Our most popular sessions generally fall into one of three types of matches; one department against another; one company against another or blending together teams of people who have never worked with each other. We often recommend that everyone on the team have the opportunity to serve at all positions on the boat such as skipper, strategist, helm’s person, main or jib sail trimmer, etc. These sessions are designed to be both instructive and fun.

Sailing provides a great opportunity to get away from the office and strengthen relationships while giving everyone a unique experience that they will remember for many years.

USCG and LA County Credentialed

Bluewater Sailing is one of the few facilities that is fully registered with Los Angeles County to legally provide multi-boat events. Additionally all Bluewater events are fully staffed by our US Coast Guard credentialed captains. Upon request, we can also document our insurance coverage for you and include your company as a named insured for the event. We keep a very well maintained fleet of charter and practice boats year round and are currently placing additional boats into our extensive program. If you’re comparing facilities be sure to ask if they can deliver all the above. We believe you’ll find Bluewater is the clear choice.
