Sailing Regattas

An EastSail sailing regatta is the perfect choice for a team building activity.

An EastSail sailing regatta on Sydney Harbour offers a unique and thrilling team building experience. This event includes a safety brief and  time to learn the ropes before the yachts meet up for one or more races. Each team is led by a highly qualified and experienced EastSail instructor who will guide and encourage everyone to get involved. Team work and communication will play a big part and decide who wins! The sailing regatta course is strategically planned for the prevailing winds and to take the yachts close to many of Sydney Harbour’s best attractions. Following the racing there is a presentation on our dock, and we are adjacent to the Cruising yacht Club of Australia where you can enjoy post sailing snacks and refreshments. If you prefer we can start and finish your regatta at King Street in Darling Harbour or Lavender Bay near North Sydney,

EastSail’s sailing regattas are adventurous and exciting events to enhance your conference, company client day, or for staff team building. We can organise sailing regattas for groups sizes – from 14 to 200 guests. We offer one boat activities for smaller groups.

Sailing Regatta Enhancements

EastSail can organise enhancements for your sailing regatta, from organising lunchboxes and drinks packages, or EastSail coloured caps to distinguish the teams. Corporate identity can add to your event with company flags or banners. Ask about upgrading your regatta to have smaller group sizes or larger yachts.
