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.

Experience

The Exumas

 

Experience all that The Exumas has to offer as we take you to some of the popular locations as well as some of the not so popular stops.

The cay is inhabitated with iguanas and other wildlife which make it great for snorkeling. Or you can take a hike through the large rocks and get a picturesque view of the sea.

See swimming pigs (don’t worry they are domesticated) on Major Spot’s Cay. Visit the isolated Bahamian National Park, Allans Cay, only reachable by boat!

Swimming-Pigs-Exumas-The-Bahamas-by-Patrick-Bennett-1200x675

 

 

 

les-iles-exumasOther island stops on The Exumas yacht charter include Warderick Wells, the hub of recreation and relaxation on the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. Highbourne Cay offers eight beaches all within walking distance of the marina. Highbourne’s East beach is renowned world-wide for its beauty and is ranked as one of the best beaches in the Bahamas.

 

Sample Itinerary:

relicJust as a sneak peak, one day on the yacht consists of waking up to the delicious smell of breakfast. After a morning swim or spending time on a stand up paddle board, we hoist the sails for a relaxing trip to Norman Cay. Norman Cay is very unique in its history as it once was owned by Carlos Lehder, a known leader of a drug cartel who used the island for smuggling.

Fun fact: it was featured in the 2001 movie, “Blow” starring Johnny Depp. It is here where you can see the scene of a plane crash and take a look for yourself what lies beneath the sea…

 

After lunch, we make a short sail to Shroud Cay. Shroud Cay is a slow paced, uninhabited cay owned by Exuma Park. It is a slow paced cay due to the shallowness of the water and in respect for the abundance of plant and wildlife. There is also a short river ride we will take by dinghy where there is an exotic opening to the sea at the other end!

The Exumas all-inclusive package is the perfect opportunity to escape the winter blues with family or friends.

Yacht charter – Sea of Cortez – Baja California – Mexico

Sea of Cortez, Baja California – Mexico

24330031Mexico combines stunning desert vistas with perfect sailing in the Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California. The famous French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau once defined the waters of this region “the world’s aquarium,” and “the Galapagos of North America,” because of the wide variety of undersea marine life found in these calm bays and unspoiled offshore islands.

A fleet of 5 catamarans and 1 monohull sailboat lies at the exclusive Costa Baja resort in La Paz, in a top-class marina with dive shop, supermarket, restaurants, a fine golf course and a beach club.

La Paz means “peace” in Spanish, and that’s exactly what you’ll find in this laid back coastal city that lies at 24 degrees 8 minutes north latitude and 110 degrees 18 minutes west longitude.

119041Although it is the region’s commercial and political center, La Paz remains a relaxed, easy-to-love port with a provincial atmosphere. Set amid ancient laurel trees and coconut and date palms, La Paz is surrounded by ochre colored desert.22735122

Streets radiate from the city’s northwest facing waterfront, the Paseo Alvaro Obregon. Running parallel to Paseo Obregon is the city’s stunning malecon, or waterfront promenade. Several blocks inland is the city’s main square, which features a pink quartz gazebo, tiled walkways and 19th century cathedral.

The city also features an assortment of resort hotels, golf courses, fine restaurants, as well as museums and restored colonial-era buildings.

The collection is available for selling and cruising until June 15th and from September the 5th.

Pirate Battle Week – Split Croatia

1313741908gusarska_noc_omis1_601913332Pirate battle week – 16.-23.8.

DubrovnikSplit route

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.

Romanca has been a part of it for years, and it is always on national television.

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.

Sailing in Croatia

5 votes

Rent a boat for the most rewarding cruise you could ever dream of.

Croatia has always been considered a paradise for boating holidays, and this is surely the most suitable definition for this area of the Adriatic Sea.

005_Dalmazia_BrelaAn endless number of islands create a continuum of archipelagos, all different from each other and all utterly charming.

The history of navigation has left its marks everywhere on the mainland coast and on the islands. Everything here shows the ancient symbiosis between man and the sea, from the poor life of the fishermen, up to the glitz of the rich international traders.

korcula-island-croatia-6

 

 

 

 

 

 

Along the coasts of Dalmatia we can trace the history that goes from the first ancient Greek and Roman cultures, arriving to the latest fingerprints of the Maritime Republic of Venice and the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

 

grad_split_-_perstilkorcula

 

 

 

 

 

 

But what most attracts sailors is the peculiarity of the landscape, the easy and pleasant sailing conditions and the innumerable bays and harbors. Facilities and services to yachtsmen are always great and widely scattered in more than hundred marinas.

The sea is clean and transparent like in few other places in the Mediterranean Sea.
For those wishing to rent a boat here, thousands of yachts are available from North to South.

Furthermore Croatia is easily accessible by plane from many European airports and by ferry from the Italian coast.
