St. Augustine’s team-building opportunities are centered on sailing aboard both large and small craft – and an unforgettable set of challenges among the alligators. Here are 5 different team-building opportunities in and around St. Augustine.
1. St. Augustine Sailing
Participate in a unique bonding experience aboard a luxury sailing yacht through St. Augustine Sailing. Onboard team building activities provide opportunities for participants to improve communication skills, enhance problem-solving abilities and to experience “in-command” decision making as the helmsperson. Participants cycle through various crew positions where they work together to perform impressive sailing maneuvers.
Plus, the scenery is spectacular! Additional boats can be provided for larger groups with the ultimate goal of creating a corporate regatta. Past clients include the University of Florida’s Heavener School of Business, Wounded Warriors and the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind.
2. The Schooner Freedom
One of St. Augustine’s most distinctive sailing ships, the Schooner Freedom is the only charter schooner operating between Charleston and the Florida Keys. Seventy-six feet in length, the Freedom is an authentic tribute to naval history and the blockade runners of the 19th century. The perfect setting for team-building activities, the Freedom is available for daytime sailing, as well as sunset and moonlit cruises that offer impressive, memorable backdrops for team building.
Need an inspirational setting for a large team-building activity (up to 110 participants)? Sabrage, a 63-foot power catamaran is the perfect platform for creative minds. With 1500 square feet of floor space, a high-end bar, comfortable seating that can be adopted to any layout and beautiful features throughout, Sabrage provides an upscale setting available for day or night team building in the waters surrounding the nation's Oldest City.
