First of all, I'd read the MAIB report on Celtic Pioneer http://www.maib.gov.uk/publications/...ic_pioneer.cfm

Make sure your insurance and your coding covers this activity as well as your training work.

I'd be having a long talk with the commissioning clients about what they're trying to achieve. If it's part of a reward programme and it's just for fun, that's quite a simple programme to run and your RYA experience will be useful - but it will still be influenced by where you're working and the sea conditions on the day of course.

Most of the corporate work we do isn't as simple as that: with budgets squeezed there has to be a commercial benefit, and we have built events with specific objectives designed to develop teambuilding, leadership, problem-solving, communication skills, and relationship-management with clients. These sort of events do take a lot more thought and planning but they do work pretty well. Feel free to PM me if you want to discuss any thoughts

I read it as the RIB is being supplied by someone else?

More details please Rad?

Sorry was using a hospital Internet thing for the OP hence bad grammar.

The Rib has 5 seats

I work for a company that has 2 cruisers and a rib, the corperate guys will be on the yachts then in the afternoon will go out in 4's on the rib with me driving.

The rib is the centres own and is the one I use to teach their PB2 courses on.

I believe it has the right insurance, the guy who runs the centre is specific about everything so this wont be overlooked.

What I want to know is what "activities" would you do apart from flying over waves etc.

How about rigging up a bit of a slalom around buoys (not to close and as long as there's enough depth)

Back to my earlier point, RAD - what you do isn't nearly as important in the corporate market as why you're doing it.

I worked in management development for nearly 30 years (on both sides of the fence, as a provider and as a commisionning buyer), and unless all they want is to have fun on the water the most important question is "What do you want to get out of this event?"
