Nike Corporate Challenge

Nike spends the day sailing with Modern Sailing School And Club on San Francisco Bay participating in a Corporate Team Building Event and Race

Nike Leadership Experiences the Best the Bay Area Has to Offer with a Modern Sailing Corporate Challenge.

In September 2014, 14 members of Nike's executive team were in San Francisco for a leadership review. Noble Engagements, a bay area destination management company, partnered with MSC to deliver a unique day of team building, beginning with a Corporate Challenge sailing Regatta.

 

The Nike teams, each with 5 active participants and two MSC race coaches, raced three boats along the America’s Cup course. SF weather cooperated perfectly, with 15-25 knots of breeze on a beautiful sunny afternoon. A very close start was followed by a highly competitive upwind leg and an exciting first mark rounding, which ended up determining team Allegro's victory, led by Race Leader Stephan Sonnenschein.
 

The Nike team had a blast, and finished the day saying, “That was awesome, we’ll be back!”

Testimonials

  • Sara Jane G.

    I've taken two classes at MSS&C and was very happy with the program. This is also a great club with lots of opportunities for camaraderie and practice on the water. The boats in the fleet are fantastic and kept in tip-top shape. I highly recommend for all sailors and would-be sailors!

  • Esther C

    I took ASA 101 with them recently. They have the best customer service I've ever seen! I mistyped my address when I signed up online so didn't receive the textbook. I called and the lady immediately sent me another copy! Everyone at the club is super friendly.

  • John Kipping

    The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.
