Corporate Events with Newport Beach Sailing Charters

CorporateA corporate event is a captained charter designed to entertain, reward, or build camaraderie amongst your guests. When you need the perfect venue to thank clients or employees, or encourage team building and morale, sailing in stunning Newport Harbor will be an experience not soon forgotten. From harbor cruises to corporate regattas, a sailing charter provides a truly unique and memorable event.

Entertainment

Newport Beach Sailing Charters will work with you to plan an event suited to your specific business needs. For entertainment, harbor cruises complimented by mouth watering menus and wines are always a top choice. You are welcome to bring your own provisions with no corkage or additional fees. …and, for those guests who may not be seaworthy, there is always the option of remaining inside the harbor. The views are equally beautiful, as multi-million dollar homes dot the waterfront and seals sunbathe on the moorings! Half day and full day charters are available for four hours and eight hours respectively.

Team Building

If your team needs motivation and inspiration, and your meetings need to be unforgettable, then you should break out of the office and onto the ocean. No prior sailing experience is necessary. Whether your guests are novice or seasoned sailors, we cater to different abilities.

Nothing inspires bonding and team work like sailing; everyone working together toward a common goal while under pressure. Racing in a regatta forces everyone to think on their feet, communicate strongly, coordinate every action, and make the most of the strengths and weaknesses of the team. Watch hidden talents emerge as personality traits shine. Who is a natural leader, who is a good communicator, who is supportive without being told first? A sailing adventure in the fresh open air is just what you need to get your team bonding and get the feeling that you can achieve anything together.

Cruising Catamaran Corporate Event

Book your corporate event on a cruising Catamaran. For this regatta, we can accommodate between 11 and 22 people on one to two catamarans. Each guest will have the chance to help sail the boat if they so desire, or they can choose to just relax and take in the stunning surroundings. You have the option to include a waiter to serve delectable bites, premium beer and white wine selections. Your time aboard a Newport Beach Sailing Charter certainly will not be a time soon forgotten.

Call for pricing.

These regattas accommodate between 4 and 72 people and each team is led by a skilled and friendly US Coast Guard captain. Your staff can even take the helm and pilot the ship. Team shirts and trophies are also an option, to ensure that your guests glean the most out of their experience. Itineraries can be modified to a 6 hour block.
