Team building activities: What sailing teaches you.

Updated: Oct 10, 2019


Sailing a tall ship requires dedication and team work.

Four years ago I had the opportunity to #volunteer as a live aboard crew member on a #sail #training vessel. For three months I formed part of the crew and was responsible for maintaining the ship and teaching trainees to operator her at sea.

Sail training is one of the most effective programs to teach #leadership #skills. By isolating a team at sea, trainees are encouraged to work through their differences, learn new skills and #support each other to sail a complex and temperamental vessel.

Thanks to Sail Training International, here is a list of the top #benefits of sail training. ARTICLE LINK
