Corporate Events

Corporate Sailing Events

Whether it is a project launch, an executive meeting or protracted negotiations, we offer Corporate Activities to bond any team and release the tensions of the boardroom.

A corporate sailing event with Manly Sailing is a great way to achieve team development, by bringing teams together, setting up a good communication and competitive spirit amongst groups, all the while having fun and enjoying a day out on wonderful Sydney Harbour.

Having your conference in Manly?

Manly Yacht Club is a unique corporate venue suitable for meetings, informal conferences, launches, promotions or business entertaining. The waterfront venue is situated on the eastern shore of Manly Cove just a short stroll from Manly Wharf and only 18 minutes from Sydney CBD by ferry.

We can organise both your activity and your conference/meeting venue for you

Sailing Activities

Our professional skippers will guide and encourage active participation in the sailing of our well appointed yachts.

Tell us your requirements and our team will tailor the day for you.  We can organise events for both small and large groups.

Here’s some ideas:

You’ve just finished a tough conference and your group needs to relax and reflect on the day.
Take them out on the harbour for a relaxing sail. This is also the perfect way to entertain your out of town clients.
Our skippers are on hand to show everyone what to do so even those who have never sailed before can take part.
Match Racing Challenge
Your team needs to sharpen it’s competitive edge or let off steam after a long negotiation and really have some fun, then set them this challenge. Your group will compete in a series of three short races on a number of yachts.
Harbour Challenge
A long race around Sydney Harbour, during which teams divided across a number of yachts are challenged to race each other around Sydney’s glorious harbour, each yacht to the best of their ability. This is a great opportunity for teams to see the beauty of Sydney from the water as well.
Sights of Sydney Challenge.
A quest in which teams are given a blank chart of Sydney Harbour and a challenge to meet!
We can meet your group at a variety of locations on the harbour. At our Manly base your groups will meet at and be dropped off at our private wharf. Those groups staying at the nearby Q Station can board the yachts and be dropped back to their private wharf. We can also come to your conference center and do a pre event briefing if required.


In addition to your sailing event we can also offer

  • catering
  • a venue for you to have your pre or post activity meeting
  • prizes


Other customers have had this to say about a Manly Sailing Corporate Sailing Event;

Dear Anne  

It is remiss of me not to have contacted you sooner to say a big big thank you for our day on Sunday the 27th November.

We love love loved it..   We had the most amazing day on the harbour on the Catamaran. The ice was an added bonus let me tell you – an essential in fact.  

I found your service in booking this day – the efficiency in booking, follow up with our questions, information provided and maps for pick up etc, and the boat were all just amazing.  

My team also had the most magical day, we drank, ate, laughed, swam, drank, ate and laughed – all the while on an amazing Catamaran through Manly Sailing soaking up the amazing Sydney Harbour and it’s waterside suburbs and beaches.   Can’t say thank you enough, and to be honest I hope to make this an annual team event. It changed our world as a team!  

Kindest Regards and happy Christmas to you and yours Anne,

Peta-Jane Maynard, PJ Maynard Consulting.
