Coasteering - Isle of Man

'Coasteering sessions - tailored to group's ability and desire'

Last night's adverse wind conditions augmented a change in location, in order to best meet the needs of the group. As with all adventures - experience and decision making (the underlying themes in risk assessment and leadership) - played a key role in delivering an Unforgettable Adventurous Experience.

When you explore the Isle of Man constantly, the skill of matching an adventurous activity to a suitable location, in varying weather conditions, becomes more fluid.

In contrast to the needs of the adventurers on the open scheduled session, the requirements of the team on our Corporate Training Day (with similar weather conditions, running the previous day) were demanding!

It required a challenging mix of action and cognitive elements, a catalyst for comradeship, awareness and fun. The day built and strengthened the team in a way alternative courses could not.


Thanks for the pics - there's a definite buzz round the office as the team show off their war wounds and tell stories about the day!

What we tend to find best about the day is that some of the team will have only met that day or a couple of days before, yet when they come into the office after their adventure day, they get on as if they've been friends for years, it really is the best ice breaker.

Typically we picked the worst day of the week weather wise, but it doesn't seem to have affected their enjoyment at all, so a job well done!

Thanks again
