Feedback on sailing for team events

Thanks for hosting and skippering such a fantastic day yesterday.  Everyone had a brilliant time, it was a shame about the lack of wind but it didn’t hamper the enthusiasm or mood.

Edward June 17

Thanks for such a great day yesterday – as always the feedback has been superb.  Very enjoyable and thanks for your help and support.

See you next year!

Mike June 17

Thank you very much for a VERY enjoyable day today. You really were a fantastic host and skipper.  We were all commenting as we left what a great job you did.  I really hope that I will have the opportunity to come out with you again…Please feel free to use me as a reference for future clients if you ever need one.

my appreciation for your help and participation in our team building day.  From my point of view I am pleased we managed to achieve exactly the results I hoped for from the experience – even the weather played ball in the finish!  Please pass on my thanks to Paul also.  This sort of activity has to be the top of the list for anyone looking for similar results – proper teamwork!

Team Reward Event Following the events we have just run, I would like to thank you again for the professionalism by you and your team which has contributed to to huge success of these events. In particular, Kirsten’s immense professionalism, enthusiasm and drive has made it a pleasure to work with you and I hope we have the opportunity to work with you both again in the future.
Melanie – November 2009

I thought I would write to say thank you for a wonderful two days. The whole team enjoyed it. It was great to see even the most nervous have a big smile on their face at some point over the two days.

The boat was wonderful and all the arrangements and food superb. It was very well received by all. The balance of sailing and the way you managed us all was complimented on by a number of the team.
Tim – July 2009 Team Building

I wanted to let you know how much the team enjoyed the sailing day yesterday, thanks to your very kind assistance in helping me put the day together and your nautical expertise. The fine weather reflected our enjoyment of the day and I don’t know of a single member of the team who didn’t participate in the sailing in one form or another – why even I was at the helm at one point!!! We had a whale of a time and are already hoping to repeat the event next year – budget permitting – so please accept a very warm thank you and pass on our thanks to the crews who made the day so memorable.
Jayne – Sept 2009 Team Building Event

Everyone really enjoyed the whole trip but I’m sure that they would say that their highlight was being on the water learning the ropes. I was thrilled with the positive energy that came from the team and I’m convinced that this was all down to the motivation and encouragement from the skippers and first mates. Kirsten, Paul, Andy (and please pass the message onto Nic), I don’t think it would have been the same successful event without you. And Kirsten, your help in the run up to the event was invaluable – thank you so much. If I hear of anyone that is even thinking of doing a team building event in the future, I will be doing my best to make sure that they will be contacting you.

Client hospitality and corporate events

Kirsten is just a wonderful skipper.  I have taken family, friends, staff and customers out on the water with Kirsten and they invariably comment on her great insight, instruction and patience but mainly the fact that she’s just a great person to be out on the water with.  I enjoyed sailing with Kirsten so much that I went on to spend 5 days on a boat gaining my Day Skipper qualification with her!   I’m qualified now but still finding myself emailing Kirsten for availability to join us on my trips!  Alastair July 14

We all had a fab day and have had great feedback from all of the guests. Rid ride was fabulous so please pass on our thanks to Andy. Looking forward to next year already!  Mike Corporate Day July 13

As ever a fantastic event!  Lloyd Corporate Day – July 2012

On behalf of David and myself I just wanted to thank you for what was a wonderful and very memorable days sailing today. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I so enjoyed the fun and lots of laughs. After all that is what makes it so special. Once again thank you very much for taking such good care of us and being so kind to our guests.
Catherine – Corporate Day – Aug 2012

We had a really super day and everyone enjoyed themselves. I would imagine we’ll be doing the same next summer, so perhaps over the next couple of months we can start pencilling a date.  Richard – Corporate day – Aug 2012

A really big thank you for a super day – all the guests and the crew really enjoyed themselves and we have had positive feedback and promises of business already, which of course is the purpose from my point of view!
I was so impressed by the professionalism both you and Paul displayed, and with the way you both lightly carried what is a heavy personal responsibility for the safety of a mixed but largely incompetent bunch of finance people.  Peter – Corporate Day – Aug 2011

Thanks ever so much for a fantastic day!! That is definitely the best sailing experience I have ever had, I just loved the fact that it was a bit “lively” (especially as we mostly avoided the rain), it made for a really exciting trip back. I thought Kirsten was as lovely and professional as ever and the Yacht club came up trumps with the food and wine too.
Mitch – Corporate Day – Aug 2011

Many thanks for your help and support in pulling together another great day. Conditions were amazing and the feedback from guests was best we have ever had! Please pass on our thanks to the other skippers, I can even live with the tail end position at the end given that we all got to sail in F7 conditions and lived to brag about it! We all had a great day last Wednesday and our guests certainly enjoyed themselves. It was well organised and very relaxing. Look forward to doing it again.
Lloyd – Corporate Day Aug 2011

We all had a great day last Wednesday and our guests certainly enjoyed themselves. It was well organised and very relaxing. Look forward to doing it again.
Adrian – Corporate Day June 2011

Just a short note to thank you and your team for yesterday – by all accounts I missed a terrific day. The Team thoroughly enjoyed the day, and early feedback from customers was excellent – at least two have asked to be included next year!
James – Corporate Day June 2011

Absolutely fantastic day – thanks for your support. Great guest feedback already.
Mike – Corporate Day May 2011

Having spent the last week fielding a deluge of grateful and highly complimentary e/mails from our guests, please accept my apologies for not expressing my thanks sooner for helping to put together a fantastic event.

Without exception all the crews have been full of praise for their skippers on the day as well as the way that they in which you/your team helped to foster a competitive but fun day.

As hosts, Sharon, Jamie and I found our roles made really easy by the way in which the day was run. Roll on next year!
Lloyd – June 2010 Corporate Day

Thank you for a great day and for looking after us all so well.

I’m pleased to say very positive feedback has been received from all guests and both Graham and I also really enjoyed ourselves – I am confident we have strengthened our relationship with all 3 customers as a result. We all felt the day went very well and was well organised and I can not offer any feedback on what could be done differently – lunch was good and reasonably priced, I would be happy to go back.

I will certainly be looking to do this again and will give you a buzz in the future to arrange.
David – July 2010 Corporate Day

I wanted to drop you a brief note of thanks for looking after us all last week.

An interesting and exciting day, perhaps a bit more than we bargained, or hoped for! Anyway, it certainly seems to have made an impression with our clients, with some really good feedback. Belinda even said – “it was certainly the most challenging of conditions I have been out in and has fuelled my desire to do more ….I look forward to the next sailing sail!”.

So many thanks to you and Paul for a very enjoyable day. And thanks for getting us back in one piece.
Chris – September 2010 Corporate Day

A day with the competitive spirit clearly taking over. Very well put together and appreciated by all. Will definitely do it again.
July 2009 Corporate Day

The day was perfect – thank you, and I’d be grateful if you could call me gain next year to arrange a second such trip.
Gareth – June 2009 Corporate Day

Thanks for a super day last Wednesday. I know from the feedback everyone had a great time and hopefully some of the guests will use your services in the future.
Graham – June 2008 Corporate Day

It was great day – thank you so much – you and Jeff. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and agreed it is one of the best Corporate days going!
James – July 2008 Corporate Day

Yes I agree whole heartedly, it was a fantastic day and I thought that the whole format was excellent (the company wasnt too bad either!!). I certainly slept well last night!
Graham – July 2008 Corporate Day

I second the positive feedback given by everyone. It was a fantastic day and I am now just trying to fight the urge to sell my flat, buy a yacht and give Ellen MacArthur a run for her money (I may be a bit optimistic there). I will certainly let everyone at … marketing know what a great day it was.
