Team Building Options

Team building sessions April through September, can be held in conjunction with Wednesday and Friday night races.

Team building for Midwinter races requires two days- a training day and a race day, as evening races aren’t held in winter. Training days will be held on Fridays with a Saturday race November through March.

$150 booking deposit required. All refundable if cancelled within 72 hours. If weather precludes a safe and pleasant day, and alternate date cannot be set, booking deposit is refunded right up to sailing date

We can also do a less formal team building day with teams competing against each other in our own regatta with other charter operators.
