Course aim

One week sailing across the Adriatic sea with your team is a challenge and an unforgettable experience. You will spend a lot of time together, supporting and getting to know each other and learn to function as a team. The professional skipper on your side is taking care of your safety, supporting you to organize the time on board and introducing you to the basics of sailing.

Your overall experience is going to be documented in the form of the daily team blog and a final project report within one month after the end of the program. At least three weeks before your sailing trip starts, you will receive a selection of relevant literature on cross-cultural team building, which you will process through self-study. On board, you will have the opportunity to discuss and apply these ideas, via guides questions and tasks. Your overall experience is going to be documented in the form of the daily team blog and a final individual project report within one month after the end of the program.

The aim is to significantly develop your soft skills in the area of cross-cultural team building, and to learn how to sail along the way.

Note: If you are a group of at least 8 students the course can be organized any time between May and October. During the high season, June to August, the costs will be higher.

Ladies boat: if you are female and would like to be separate, we can provide a female skipper as well.
