Team Building Days

We like to bring our work to life and showcase the important skills that we teach in our beneficiaries. Our corporate days are a chance for our supporters to enjoy a day of team building, to see our work first hand and to have fun on the water.

Our waterfront base is the perfect place to get the team together, learn new skills, build relationships, and leave feeling invigorated!

Team building has been proven to have positive impacts on the productivity of employees. Here at UKSA, you can reward your colleagues or enjoy our team-building events safe in the knowledge that our experienced team will take care of your every requirement. We will support you to practice effective teamwork, understand your strengths and how they can positively impact your team and help those who might not typically be engaged to interact with each other.

Our customised programmes are designed to build confidence and encourage collaboration using a wide range of activities and outdoor learning as a catalyst for positive outcomes such as:

  • Improved communication
  • Increased confidence
  • Problem solving skills
  • Identifying leadership qualities
  • Increased productivity
  • Enhanced creativity
  • Increased collaborative efforts
  • Improved mental / physical health
  • Positive reinforcement
  • Improved morale

Raft Building

At a UKSA day, we will facilitate a fun team raft building exercise. If things stay intact, there will be obstacle courses to navigate and challenges to complete. The aim will be for the team to stay together longer than the raft does.

Sessions can be tailored to the length of stay and to the water confidence of the team. You will at all times have the experience of the UKSA staff to draw from and will ensure you are safe and able to focus on the tasks at hand. Two options would be provided where one spends more time on the construction of the raft and the challenges therein while the other gets you on the water asap and allows for more time afloat.

Stand-Up Paddle Boards, Kayaking/ Canoeing

Explore the estuaries of the island as the original settlers did by chasing the tides and seeing the Island from a different perspective. Sit down or stand up, the choice is yours. Load your craft with the bare essentials and go where your oars take you. The choice of craft comprises of Stand-Up Paddle Boards, Sit on Top kayaks, and Canadian Canoes. Team up or go solo.

Keel Boat Racing

You’ll be kitted, suited, and booted in all the gear to keep you safe from the elements, allowing you to focus on the deck duties assigned to you. Your experienced skipper will show you the ‘ropes’ getting you to form an effective team, ready to face the race circuit and put your skills to the test.

A typical session would compromise of a morning of boat handling, rigging and crew assignments. Lunch is normally a working lunch while going over the race briefing, and course set up. Then, it’s winner takes all in a three-race series in the sailing playground that is the Solent. You’ll leave UKSA with stories to tell and experiences as unique as the waters we navigate.
