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!”

Testimonials

  • 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.

  • John Kratochvil, Oregon

    I would like to compliment Stan Lander for his coaching, counseling and teaching Heavy Weather Offshore Sailing. Stan was very accommodating to all of the student's interests and shared his many years of insight on handling the boat in heavy seas. I would certainly recommend Stan and this course to sheltered waters sailors. My confidence in handling a boat of this size was certainly enhanced by the experience.

  • 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.
