Corporate/Group Sailing on Dublin Bay
With our uSail resources, we can now offer Sailing as the centrepiece of an ideal Corporate Team Event. Sailing is an amazing environment for team building – the team that communicates, learns and works well together – sails fast and typically wins!
We can put together an attractive Sailing/Dining package tailored to your individual requirements. We have the boats, the gear, and the instructors, so we can offer an exhilarating hands-on sailing experience. We have rooms for team meetings, and we can round off the day with dining or a BBQ in the cosy atmosphere of the club.
Options for companies and groups:
1. An Introduction to Sailing on Dublin Bay aboard 1720 Sports boats. A Sailing session (of up to 3 hours) where sailors learn the basics, and actually sail the boats themselves under the watchful expert eye of our ISA certified sailing instructors. 4 – 5 persons per boat, all safety gear and wet gear provided.
2. Corporate Team Building through racing: Groups of up to 120 can be accommodated (in conjunction with our sailing partners) where participants take to the water on the 1720’s, and experience the thrill of learning to sail together, and the competitive excitement of racing. A series of 2 – 5 races are run around a triangular course where the competition is strong and fun is had by all. Experienced coaches on board to direct and instruct.
3. uSail for private groups – a series of sailing classes held over one month or less. It will follow the uSail course syllabus, but run to the schedule as specified by the group.
4. Private sailing for groups – for small outings/ groups we can tailor design a sailing activity to suit the groups requirements, whether a relaxed sail on the Bay, or an afternoon / morning of instruction.
Utilising the George fleet of 5 Club 1720’s, and up to 13 more boats from our sailing partners, we can deliver a sailing experience to delight all. A number of members have already availed of this facility (see testimonials below).
“We booked three 1720s for our group. All 12 people had a great evening both afloat and ashore. We had a space reserved on the balcony afterwards, and everyone enjoyed the BBQ and the buzz of a sailing night”.
Frank O’Beirne – IT Alliance
“Our 19 guests arrived at 5.30pm. We were provided with our sailing gear and met our four instructors. We went sailing from 6-7.30pm and then returned to the club for a buffet style dinner in the club room. It was a great evening, and it was very good value for money”.
David Kelly – Horizon Pharma
“ I brought 2 groups out, and the flexibility of the club to fulfil our different requirements was terrific. Group 1 had 30 people. They met on a Wednesday from 3pm – 5pm in the Club Room for a business meeting, then went sailing from 5pm to 7pm. This was followed by a BBQ on the Forecourt and Clubroom”.
“I arranged a Sunday outing for our second group. We had 35 people across 7 boats. We met at 2pm, had a short briefing in the Club Room, before going sailing for 3 hours. We finished off with a BBQ on the Quarterdeck. We were all well pleased.”
