Platinum Regatta

The Platinum Regatta is the most exciting option for your company or event and will ensure everyone gets the most out of the day with maximum participation and action thanks to the match-race format.

Your group will be split into teams with a minimum of five on board each yacht. We conduct a safety briefing followed by crew role allocation and team practise. Then the racing begins, with crew learning the importance of team work and communication. Our qualified skippers encourage everyone's participation and provide positive feedback.

"Thanks to Ed, Matt and the team who provided a fantastic team building afternoon.

Our marketing team are very competitive and the race to the finish line fired up the team with an adrenaline rush, unfortunately there is only 1 winner and that is Sydney by Sail for supplying us with a wonderful crew and the best yachts to sail.."
