New York City

The city that never sleeps is also a city that sails! From an amazing venue in the World Financial Center complex, as many as 60 team members can gather for an exciting BoatWorks Group Challenge, or square off for a RaceWorks Regatta.

With a floating club house and several great restaurants within walking distance, this venue is extremely popular for GEL leadership and team building events.

Groups ranging in size from 6 to 60 can be accommodated for any of our small boat sailing programs, and several large boats accommodating 30-50 are available for bonding cruises.

Oyster Bay

With some of the finest coaches in the country and a range of boats available, the Oakcliff Sailing Center is the perfect location to host GEL's BoatWorks and RaceWorks Regatta programs. Together GEL and Oakcliff can customize a program to suit any need.

"I didn't realize how challenging, inspiring and just plain fun our time on the water would be. This ranks as the best leadership training exercise we've done by far."


"The parallels between what goes on on land — i.e., our working environment — and what went on on the water were uncanny."

Ernst & Young

"Merging two large, geographically dispersed organizations offered some unique challenges. Jay and GEL were tremendous."

Partner, Booz Allen Hamilton

"Jay and his team put together one of the most effective and enjoyable days of team-building activity that it has ever been my pleasure to participate in (and I've been in far too many)."

IFC/World Bank

"Most of our leadership program participants have never sailed before. Trepidation? Sometimes. Positive feedback? Always."
