A Typical Barcelona Team Building Event
A typical Barcelona team building events starts at 10:00 in the morning with a briefing. There will be tea, coffee and a croissant to make sure the sailors have something in their stomach, important to mitigate seasickness. During this briefing the weather is discussed, safety instructions given, the activities explained, and if purchased the plastic scavenger hunt game explained.
We introduce the captains to the guests, and in groups of 5 to 7 people you join a boat. On board the captain walks over the most important boat elements. People get a feeling to be on a boat and the captains steer the boat out of teh harbor. At sea, all members get a task:
- Steering the boat,
- Controlling the main sail
- Holding the jib sheet left side
- Ease the jib sheet right side
Everyone will be practicing all activities and the captain is making notes and gives scores to the individual participants. After this the captain sails the boats with the team to the start line from which the regatta will start. Before the regatta the team must decide who is doing what, and during the regatta the captain will score the team as a whole. After the race a short debrief with comments from the captain and an award for the best team will be given.
