Sausalito

Sausalito’s dramatic views of the San Francisco city skyline make it an amazing place to bond with your team or clients.

Groups ranging in size from 8 to 100 can be accommodated in numerous formats of our leadership development or team building sailing programs.

Sailing Programs

In Alameda and Sausalito, our premier partner is Club Nautique, San Francisco Bay’s largest sailing school and yacht charter company. Our BoatWorks and RaceWorks programs are conducted using Club Nautique's well-maintained fleet of Colgate 26 sailboats and their highly trained licensed captains.

In business for 30 years, Club Nautique boasts two Bay Area locations and the largest, newest, best-equipped fleet of sail and powerboats on the San Francisco Bay. The school offers US SAILING Certification from beginner to offshore. Club Nautique certifies more Coastal and Offshore graduates than all of the other US SAILING schools in the country combined.

BoatWorks and RaceWorks programs for up to 32 people can be booked at either location.

For Charting Change and other programs geared toward larger groups, Club Nautique has a variety of large and comfortable boats available. Contact us and we’ll arrange just the right platform for you and your team.

Stand Up Paddle Board Programs

The waters of Richardson Bay provide the perfect location to experience a Stand Up Paddle Boarding Adventure Race. GEL's newest programs give your team the opportunity to develop leadership and communication skills whether it's windy or not.

"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."

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

"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)."

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