Chairman Graham Mills recently spent 2 nights on board yacht for team building and learning to splice the Main Brace
Each year the Group holds a retreat to reflect upon business, organisation and personal goals and work through various options. This year the vehicle for this exercise was a hands-on experience sailing two 37ft Beneteau Oceanis yachts around the Solent. The crew of 6 in each yacht learnt the basics of Seaman ship and team-work which they vowed they would take back to the work place- though they weren’t too sure about the rum rations. Day two saw their new skills put to the test with a head to head race from Cowes to Hamble. Captain Pugwash thought that the best way to show true leadership was to purchase a Captains hat which he can be seen sporting here complete with fetching waterproofs, proving the adage that it’s impossible to carry off elan whilst afloat on a large caravan. Though the experience was obviously personally significant as Graham is considering the purchase of a pedalo.
