About 32 years ago the "Team Challenge" sailing program was developed to parallel concepts in similar corporate development programs such as the "Ropes Course."
The challenge works great for large groups of people that work for the same company. Team mates participate in a group sailing race that is fun but can get competitive and challenging, similar to their outside work environment. One of the goals is to sail the yacht as a team, working with colleagues on building a network together.
