Nike Corporate Challenge

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

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!”


  • 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.

  • Ray Arceneaux

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.

  • Mike, Santa Rosa, California

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.
