The "Workplace Challenge" sailing event is set to launch to the Midland Region in 2018 after a successful pilot scheme last year in the South
If you've always fancied learning to sail, and you've got a few like-minded colleagues at work, this could be a great chance to get together and take the one-evening-a week course over six weeks and then beat your boss in a fun racing event at the end of it.
You'd be one of several companies that will all be having a go, and your team could become the County Champion Workplace.
Bartley Sailing Club starts a Workplace Challenge on June, running for six weeks, in single handed dinghies. Sessions run from 1800 – 2000 (then 2030 when the evenings get lighter).
Each company can field teams of three people and there are spaces for 15, so don't delay in getting your team or teams together. If you think you'd like to give sailing a go, make sure that your workplace is signed up as soon as possible.
The price is only £99 per person for the whole experience and regatta which is half the price of a normal learn-to-sail course, so it's a great way to get involved.
