Corporate Sailing Charters
Swan River Sailing’s corporate sailing charters are the perfect solution for your next team-building, networking or social event.
Swan River Sailing is based at the Royal Perth Yacht Club, conveniently located just 10 minutes from the Perth CBD however our yachts can be relocated to a number of other premium venues on the Swan River for your event if you wish.
Swan River Sailing owns 9 Foundation 36 yachts available for corporate sailing charters. Each yacht is licenced by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority to carry up to 11 passengers plus 1 of our experienced instructors onboard. A corporate sailing charter typically runs for around 2.5 hours and includes complimentary refreshments for guests to enjoy whilst onboard.
There are several corporate sailing programs available to suit your group’s needs from a casual cruise, all the way through to an Elite Racing Package, which comprises a series of short, sharp races to get the team working together!
NO PRIOR SAILING EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!
Anyone can sail one of our yachts under the guidance of our experienced instructors on board each yacht to ensure that all guests enjoy the experience in a safe environment. Guests are encouraged to participate as much or as little as they like.
At Swan River Sailing, safety is our priority, followed by FUN! Our Foundation-36 Yachts are licensed by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority and are fully equipped with all the necessary safety equipment on board. All of our Race Packages include the use of our Safety Boat to support the yachts during the charter and this can be used to start the race, host photographers or members of the team who aren’t comfortable on board the yachts. Our Safety Boat also carries a more comprehensive first aid kit including a defibrillator, in case of the unlikely event of an emergency.
After your corporate sailing charter, finish the day off with a function ashore at the Royal Perth Yacht Club or one of our other premium venues with a buffet barbecue, share platters, canapes or just casual drinks overlooking the Swan River. All of this can be booked through your one contact at Swan River Sailing.
Please see our Christmas Functions page for the best options and packages for a unique Office Christmas Party!
Our pre-packaged Corporate Away Day options are perfect for groups of 10, 14 or 18 guests. Options include half-day meeting room hire, AV equipment, conference catering and a half day corporate sailing program – easy to organise and a more fun way to work!
Looking for something a bit more tailored or targeted for your company’s next teambuilding event? We offer tailored teambuilding programs that include onshore presentations with Swan River Sailing’s 2 x America’s Cup campaigner, Graeme Spence and Olympic Gold Medallist, Tessa Parkinson. Our elite sports professionals will focus participants on the elements of high-performing teams and will meet with you to discuss specific elements that your team needs to work on. Then…split into teams and head out on the water onboard the Foundation 36 yachts to put the skills learnt into practice with a series of short course races.
Swan River Sailing also teams up with partner provider Total Team Building to provide a less formal teambuilding activity, the Pirates of the Swan Challenge. The Challenge incorporates sailing on the Swan River followed by a series of onshore team obstacles and challenges to earn points and solve clues to open the treasure chest. The first team to open the treasure chest wins the prizes within the chest! Make the most of the day and get into character for this fun teambuilding activity!
