For many years now, sports have been used extensively for leadership development programmes. It is widely recognised that there are many synergies between the qualities required for success in sports and inspirational leadership in the corporate world.

Yacht racing has been accepted as one of the most technically demanding sports in the world. Therefore, it is no surprise that there are many different skills required to build a team on a sailing yacht including strategic thinking, effective communication, creative flare and the technical ability. Identifying, nurturing and embracing these qualities to form an effective team is critical in success of inspirational leadership.

Using a yacht as the platform for leadership development programmes provides a unique experience. With the variety of complexities generated by an ocean-going race yacht, our courses are guaranteed to push everyone in a constructive manner to help them learn about themselves and their teams.

Pindar uses some of the best facilitators in the business with a wealth of corporate training experience. They combine their passion for sailing with business and leadership knowledge to inspire, encourage and nurture aspiring team leaders utilising internationally accredited and approved methods.
