SAIL TRAINING unlike sail racing or sail cruising is a form of TeamBuilding, Leadership and Character Development program first created by the Outward Bound School in the darkest hours of WWII . the term Outward Bound is used when a ship leaves the safety of the harbour into the unknown risks and storms .

We have perfected the art of Sail Training onboard our 5 Sailing Ketches. ( 50 pax ) ( Sail Training International requires fore and aft rigged sailboats to qualify ) Whether it is Leadership, TeamBuilding, VUCA, Change Management, Personality Profiling, Onboarding or Core Values Assimilation … we will customise the right activities onboard with the right dosage of Challenge and Perceived Risk .

Each team will be tasked to build a robot together. After which they will be going through the learning session on manual controls and how to control them. This will allow their robots to be unique as compared to the rest. Their final objective will be to pit the robot that they built against man-made obstacles such as to carry items and moving from point A to point B or to going through a maze or to dance! The possibilities is endless! They will then customise a message for the children using the robots built and have it delivered to the beneficiaries.


Learning Objectives
