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!”

  • Rolf Zingg

    Since many, many years, I had the dream to sail underneath the Golden Gate bridge. On October 14th last year, my dream became true. Thanks to our dear friend Aaron Fritz who made it possible and organized this cruise for us. With this adventure I was able to achieve one more milestone on my sailing career.

    Finally on the water, it was great! Full moon made the flows even stronger and it was like sailing in a washing machine.

    I did my sailing education in the English Channel, where the situation with the wind and flows is comparable to the San Francisco Bay. So I felt pretty much "at home" being on the helm in the Bay.

    I hope our skipper Stan Lander enjoyed this day cruise too. We, definitely did! It was an unforgettable experience for all of us.

    A very big thank you to all of you who made it possible, that my dream became reality! Also thank you for the MSC flag I got at the end of the day. It found it's place in my study, where I can see it daily.

    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!

  • John Boynton

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.
