Building and Developing High Performance Teams and Leaders through Experiential Sailing Activities
Want to get your team to gel together better? Want to improve communication and teamwork? Get out on the water!
Practice Makes Perfect
Pilots train for several hundred hours in flight simulators in order to sharpen their skills before taking flight.
Imagine how analogous simulations in your company would payoff in the real, bottom line situations your teams face every day. You could test philosophies, thoughts and actions, unlock hidden potentials, develop professional leaders—and build your team’s overall effectiveness.
Under the right conditions, team training on a modern sailing vessel can help your teams simulate these difficult and often stressful situations. Along with a professional facilitator, who provides feedback and teaching, your teams can quickly begin applying their new skills to company challenges.
Bringing Out The Best
On a sailboat, team members are put through their paces in an unfamiliar environment, and they face unusual problems. It’s a compact environment. There’s no escape. Resources are limited. There’s no individuality. The team must rely on each other. Physical strength or academic achievement is no advantage. Every team member is on an even keel. Communication, leadership and fellowship are paramount.
Under such conditions, strengths and weaknesses quickly rise to the top. And your team grows stronger.

The “Dry Tortuga’s” were named by early Spanish explorers, due to their resemblance to the sea turtles which were once so plentiful, and the fact that they are “dry”. There is no source of fresh water available.
Though it is not an easy place to get to, once you’re there, we think you’ll agree it’s worth the effort! Part of the appeal of the Tortugas is the remote solitude, natural wildlife and peaceful nature of these islands. The history of abandoned “Fort Jefferson” adds mystery.
Fort Jefferson has a fascinating history and the architecture of this massive structure is amazing. It is well worth a few hours of exploring. Visit the lonely cell of Dr. Samuel Mudd, who was imprisoned here for setting John Wilkes Booth’s broken leg, after he assassinated President Lincoln.
The Dry Tortugas are a National Park, staffed by a few friendly park rangers, and their own water supply is dependent on a cistern system, so you cannot get fresh water from the park, or food. (Some guests however, have reported having great success swapping cold six-packs of beer with the local fisherman, in return for fresh lobster, fish or shrimp!)
Weather is a very important factor when planning a trip to the Dry Tortugas. Listen carefully to the local forecast and check with our Key West manager before leaving.
