Cumbrae Caper Corporate Challenge


Cumbrae Caper Corporate Challenge Weekend offers a unique and fun team building experience on the water. The event takes place on two of our sailing vessels, where each team of 12 must work together to rise to the challenge of competing against the other in a series of “races”. This includes sailing the boat around Cumbrae (or thereabouts – depending on which way the wind is blowing!), completing the main sail hoist challenge, a dinghy rowing race and a pub quiz.


What’s provided

As part of a weekend challenge, we provide two nights on board accommodation, food and soft drinks, along with safety equipment and waterproofs. We also provide fully qualified sea staff – and there is no need to worry about whether you have sailed before or not – we are used to dealing with young people who have never been on board a boat before.


The benefits to you

Taking on a Corporate Challenge Weekend with us offers you an opportunity to move your business forward, whether by rewarding your staff, creating networking opportunities for regional team members, providing an opportunity to foster team unity or treating your clients.


What others say

We have had fantastic weekends with Barclays, Tilney Bestinvest (formerly Deutsche Bank), KPMG and Prudential to name a few.

I was very impressed with the passion and capability of the sea staff, who were instrumental in providing an incredible experience.
Ian Rogers, Prudential

I first sailed with OYT Scotland on a Corporate Fundraising weekend in 2012, and was so impressed with what the Trust did for young people that I wanted to get involved more.

The difference you can make

By taking part in a corporate challenge weekend you enable us to deliver adventure under sail to more young people. Our sail training programmes aim to inspire young people to build confidence, learn life skills, gain qualifications and choose positive directions for their lives. Many young people have told us that taking part in a voyage has provided them with a life changing experience.


The cost involved

We ask that each team raise a total of £6k (£500 per head) to help provide funding for those young people who cannot afford to pay for the voyages themselves. Half the money raised will go towards the cost of running the corporate weekend, and the other half will go towards our young people, so the more money you raise, the more young people we can help.
