High Speed Catamaran Sailing

Last year the Corporate Team set off to Hamilton Island to relax and sample a few RedBalloon treats.

The trip to Hamilton Island was the team incentive that had been dangling like a carrot at the end of the stick, ever present on each person’s mind for the entire duration of last financial year. Luckily each team member worked hard to surpass their targets and the trip became a reality. The Corporate Team are experts at devising incentive programs for businesses all around Australia – and they do work wonders on employee performance.

Apart from ditching what was meant to be the sales conference on Saturday morning and swapping it with an hour long yoga lesson in the sun (conducted by CEO Naomi) – other experiences included a day trip to Whitehaven Beach and Catamaran Sailing on Trapeze High Speed Adventure.

The corporate team before we get on the catamaran.

The weather was perfect for sailing on the catamaran on Sunday morning, warm and blustery with the sun behind the clouds to reduce the intensity of the already present sun burn. Our trust sailor Keith explained to us that we were going to travel faster than almost 80% of Australia’s sailing boats ever get to go.

We soon understood why – as we hooked our harnesses in, pushed our bums over the side of the boat and extended our legs looking towards the water below we could see how the boat sliced through the water like butter. The water rushed past and as we picked up gushes of wind we swung backwards “yeeeeeeeeeeeeha!” we reached 20 knotts!

For those looking for a natural high, that excited feeling you get in your stomach when you’re in a fast car but amplified you have got to try Catamaran Sailing on Trapeze High Speed Adventure. The beautiful surrounds of the whitsundays islands and the aqua blue water are an added bonus.

We made CEO Naomi sit in the net at the front of the boat and get bounced around and splashed in the face by the waves – that was also a plus too.

Highly recommended!
