Many businesses and other organisations offer team-building or client days on board large yachts. What makes OYT South different is that the fee you pay goes directly to our charitable work, helping us to offer sailing to young people aged 12 - 25, many from highly deserving backgrounds..94.82% of our expenditure in 2012-13 went on the direct delivery of our charitable services.
You can enjoy the benefits of a superb experience on board, while knowing that you are helping a young person take part in a voyage too - perhaps someone who may have a physical or learning difficulty, or have a sibling in a hospice, or have been homeless, or bullied, or bereaved, or suffering from cancer.
You can even nominate another registered charity, school or youth organisation for places on a voyage, funded by your contribution.
We can offer a fantastic day out for your company, whether you are looking for team-building, client entertainment or just a great day out for hardworking staff.
John Laing can take groups of twelve people at a time. OYT South supplies a crew of five or six, which gives you a choice. You can, if you like, sit back, enjoy the day, and let our crew sail the boat. But most people find it far more enjoyable to get involved in the sailing.
Our crew will be made up of people who normally sail with us as staff on sail training voyages with young people, so they have immense experience in teaching people how to sail John Laing, instilling confidence in novices, helping people to work as a team, and ensuring that all participants stay safe. But if your group contains experienced sailors, our staff can help them to get involved in every aspect of sailing and navigation.
Every corporate day on board John Laing can be designed around the needs of the individuals taking part.
