At J World we have, through years of experience and hundreds of team building events, created three “off the shelf” programs that represent what we most commonly receive as team building requests. Keep in mind we can customize or invent any program to suit your teams particular needs. All programs include a heavy dose of fun, camaraderie, and group development. All programs are available in both full day and half day options.
- Sailworks–If you are looking for the premiere sailing related team building event, this is it! Over 20 years of running team building events, we have created and honed a program that forces your team to work together both on their individual boat and between boats as a larger team. The goal of this program is not to teach participants how to sail, but rather to use the challenging sport of sailing to encourage your team to work together in a new environment. Benefits of this program include increased esprit de corps, better communication, and more effective leadership among your team. Amidst laughter, smiles and the exhilaration of wind and water, the group will hone team skills vital to their success back in the office. Sailworks is a multi-boat team exercise with groups of four participants and a coach on each boat focusing their energies on a specific group challenge. While the challenge is not a “race”, getting through the course will require collaboration of all participants to navigate the course, wind and currents..all under the direction of a trained, professional coach. Communication will be critical as an overall strategy must be implemented by multiple strategists operating from remote locations (different boats).
- Harbor Cruise/Fun Sail–The primary focus of the Harbor Cruise is to have a fun day on the water in scenic Annapolis. However, this is not simply a boat ride. Your group will learn how to work together to maneuver their sailboats, and then put their skills to the test navigating the crowded Annapolis harbor.
- J World Regatta–Participants will get the chance to compete against their fellow team members in a sailboat race! After an on the water coaching session, where the teams will focus on getting the sailboat around the course we will hold a regatta for the participating teams. This is a particularly good program for highly competitive sales teams, develops small team synergy and dynamic communication skills while maintaining a competitive spirit.
