Incentive, events and regattas.

5 votes

flotillaAre you looking for a thrilling, motivating  and energetic incentive trip or event? A corporate flotilla sailing cruise or regatta is the winning idea.

While immersed in breathtaking seascapes and involved in exciting activities, participants will build up team spirit, sense of belonging and corporate pride, with a high impact on the company’s image.

 

Sailing is widely recognized as a great way to strengthen team relationships between people with different backgrounds and personalities. In a competitive environment your team will learn how to communicate and work better while at the same time have fun. The final result is a stronger team capable of achieving ambitious business results!

 

All the projects are led by experienced skippers on board who will present the team with skills of boat steering, sails trimming and navigation. At the end of each day, briefing will be given to point out the good things as well as to discuss areas that need improvement.

 

The flotilla is always followed by a support boat, for technical assistance and fully equipped for the races (with buoys, flags, horn, ect.) in case of regattas. Every day the base staff will plan the best itinerary and race course according to the weather and the participants seamanship (because the weather conditions change, it is necessary to optimize the courses every day). The staff will also take care of the races departure and arrival procedures, times measurement and yardstick ratings for each boat in order to set a final ranking list when required.

Thanks to local contacts in the cruising area, marinas and restaurants along the itinerary can be booked for your group and also a final dinner or price-giving cocktail.

 

The best times of the year to organize this type of events in the Mediterranean Sea are spring and autumn: weather conditions are ideal for some real sailing, marinas are not crowded and charter prices are at their lowest.

 

Two great areas where to host this type of events are North-East Sardinia and Croatia, that offer ideal sailing conditions and a wide yacht selection. If you want to arrange a monotype regatta, Croatia is the right choice, with several monotype fleets located in different bases from North to South.

 

What is of utter importance is to book well in advance (at least 6 months, ideally more), otherwise it will be impossible to find exactly the right boats in the right dates.

 

We’ll work closely with you in order to find out your wishes and create the perfect corporate event for your company. Please contact us at charter@intercharter.com to let us know your needs and request an offer.

Romanca is a part of the Omiš pirate battle every year on August 18th. It is a tradition that is very important for the boat.

The guests have a choice to stay on the boat and be a part of the show, in which case we organize pirate costumes for them. We organize dinner in a great restaurant called Radmanove mlinice, so if the guests would prefer not to be on the boat during the show, they can stay at the restaurant or in the city.

The event lasts 3 hours, from 7 to 10 PM.

The guests on Romanca in 2013 were a part of the battle, and they really enjoyed it.

This is a great opportunity participate in something unique.

After the ride, boat will pick you up and take you to the port of call for the night. There is a total of 7 cycling routes of varying difficulty, so if at any point you feel you have had enough, you are welcome to stay on board and relax. On the cruise you will experience magnificent landscape and stunning views, exciting life on board a small cruise boat and the calm atmosphere of Dalmatian small towns you will be docking at.

Take one vintage cruise boat, a few bicycles, a handful of friendly shipmates, mix well and season to taste with Adriatic sea salt and plenty of sunshine. A perfect recipe for a perfect vacation!

DAY 1 Saturday

Sailing from Split to island of Bra?: Split – Supetar

Check in starts at 11 AM and lasts until 1 PM when the ship departs.

  1. Bike route, approx. 20 km: Supetar – Postira – Supetar (difficulty level: LIGHT)

Upon arrival at Supetar, you will mount your bike for the first time for a ride along the coast. You will be passing through a small village Splitska to a town Postira. There you will stop for a swim and a cup of coffee. You will then then ride back to Supetar, right on time for dinner – your first meal on board. You will spend the night at the harbor of Supetar, getting to know your crew and fellow travelers.

After a climb to a height of approximately 500 meters above sea level, if you will be aiming even higher you can venture all the way up to the Mount of Vidova Gora – the highest mountain on all of the islands of Adriatic with its height of 778 meters above sea level.

Bike route extension, approx. 22 km, Stari Grad – Hvar (difficulty level: HEAVY)

Today you will again be able to decide on how much you wish to cycle on Hvar, an island also known as the “Sunniest island in Croatia”, since in average Hvar has 7.7 hours of sunshine per day. Your first route will take you from Stari Grad to Jelsa and then back to Stari Grad, through the ancient Stari Grad Plain, a UNESCO Protected World Heritage Site, an agricultural landscape set up by the ancient Greek colonists in the 4th century BC. There you will have a break for a cup of coffee or a scoop of ice cream. You will then return to Stari Grad, where you can load your bikes on the boat and sail to the town of Hvar, or if you feel fit and eager, you can enjoy the hilly road to the town of Hvar that meanders through fields of best Croatian lavender and rosemary, passing the town of Selca on the way. In the afternoon, you will have an opportunity to explore the town of Hvar, known for its exceptional beauty. You can even climb the fortress built on a hill above the town for a panoramic view of the town of Hvar, its marina and the surrounding archipelago of islands. As the sun sets down, you can dress up and enjoy the bustling nightlife, since Hvar is also famous for its bars and clubs open late into the night.

Upon arrival, you will ride up to the top of Marjan hill for a grand view over the city of Split. Marjan hill is a forest park much beloved by the locals situated close to the town center.
