Eye Of The Wind

A sailing legend

More than 100 years ago, a sailing legend was born: in 1911, the Lühring shipyard at Brake/Germany built a topsail schooner.
The ship has been given a new lease of life in 1973 when it was bought by Anthony "Tiger" Timbs, an Englishman from the greater London area. A group of enthusiastic ship lovers began to rig the vessel as a brigantine. The restoration at the shipyard in Faversham / England took nearly four years. The former cargo holds were transformed into a lounge and accommodation for crew and passengers.
Under its new name 'Eye of the Wind', the two-master was finally ready to embark on new adventures at sea. She sailed around the globe on her first journey, stopping in Australia, the Pacific and the infamous Cape Horn. The trip was barely finished in 1978 when the next challenge was already waiting for this impressive tall ship: Under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Charles, the 'Eye of the Wind' had the honour of being the flagship for "Operation 'Drake." More than 400 crew members took part in this almost two-year globe-trotting expedition in the footsteps of the famous explorer and scientist Sir Francis Drake.

In 2011, the brigantine celebrated her 100-year anniversary! On 30 April, the 'Eye of the Wind' was the flagship in a tall ship parade for the opening of the Bremerhaven Kaiserschleuse-lock, which set a new world record for the longest sailing boat parade.

The 'Eye of the Wind' is very seaworthy and fit even for the high seas and should thus not be left sitting in the harbour. Therefore, FORUM train & sail offers interested sailors - even without prior sailing knowledge - new, attractive destinations. Whether it is a Caribbean cruise or summer sailing in Scandinavia - the crew of the 'Eye of the Wind' will be happy to take you to new adventures!

Training & Topics

If you want to accomplish a sailing maneuver successfully, you must set the goal, discuss the necessary maneuvers with your crew, distribute the roles and define responsibilities. Under the guidance of experienced coaches and with the support of the captain and crew, in our trainings you will gather valuable experience that you can immediately apply in your daily professional life. You will learn what characteristics and behaviours will help you and which will prevent you from achieving your goals. The 'Eye of the Wind' is your attractive meeting room that lets you explore the country and people, and where the training and learning is much more fun. The reality of a ship and the maneuvers to be performed are far away from the usual laboratory conditions of conventional management trainings.

Teambuilding: we all pull together as a team

How is a group transformed into a successful team? - There is no better venue than aboard of a ship where team spirit and responsibility can be trained efficiently. We can only achieve our objectives if we work together and support each other. In various roles, the participants gain a real-life experience on how common goals, clear division of responsibilities, effective planning and communication affect the team. In the evening over a delicious dinner, there will be an opportunity for feedback sessions and informal exchanges of experiences between trainers and participants. The successful outcome of complex tasks and long-term projects is dependent on the effectiveness of teams. Not only expert knowledge of team members but making use of the whole spectrum of knowledge within the group as well as abilities and skills of the team members is pivotal. In this context, the question will be answered which factors have a positive impact on the success of a team. People refine their skills through the influence of different interconnected factors by which specific characteristics and personality profiles as well as behavioral roles within teams emerge. Every person has specific strengths. Those preferences will be determined four weeks before the training via an online based process licensed by Dr. M. Belbin, a British expert on the field of team- and leadership development. Here every participant will fill out a questionnaire for self-evaluating purposes which will be supplemented by an outside observer in order to determine a profile about behavioral roles of each participant within teams. The results will be analyzed on board and teams will be formed accordingly. Focal points: Effective communication, improved understanding for the needs of others, reduction of conflict potential, optimal teamwork, orientation and identity, team analysis, effective team building and situation specific occupancy of team roles, motivation, strength analysis, development of goals. Target groups: All those wishing to improve or enhance their team skills. Team leaders and managers. Working groups of a company with at least 4 members. Participants: 6 to 12 participants + Crew + Trainer Duration: 3 to 4 days Dates and rates: Please contact us

Leadership Training: From successful ship command to successful leadership

The more we communicate with each other every day, the more inevitable are many misunderstandings. Especially when dealing with employees and customers, it is essential to adopt a communication style that is clear, smooth and conflict-free. Aboard the Eye of the Wind you will not only learn the fundamentals of communication, but also how to communicate without too many words or being loud and how to delegate tasks. Small recourse into theory immediately after each manoeuvre provides information about the experiences and room for improvement. Focal points: Setting goals and communicating, planning, strategies for goal achievement, team-building skills and communication. Target groups: Entrepreneurs, executives, managers, account managers Participants: 6 to 12 participants + Crew + Trainer Duration: 3 to 4 days Dates and rates: Please contact us

Travelers reviews

Cornelia Graf 2013-10-01

The 100-year-old 'Eye of the Wind' is unique in itself: it is a film star and unparalleled beauty. Lovingly restored, you can feel her charm straight away. A warm welcome by the crew and the seminar leader rounded off the first positive impression with a welcome drink. From the very beginning, you can feel that it is important to everyone to make you feel comfortable on board. I have learned a lot. I would like to extend my thanks to my fellow seminar participants, Captain Julius and his crew, and in particular, Christa Maurer, who led the seminar competently and demonstrated her knowledge and experience.

Todd McPencow 2012-04-14

Just looking at the water, the horizon, the curvature of the earth was breathtaking. Seemingly being one of only 15 people in the world gave the adventure a unique feeling. Britta was a great 1st mate. She really comes alive out at sea, taking charge, leading the crew ensuring the ship is running well. And damn I wish I had her shoulders…

Ralf Breetzmann 2012-01-01

It was immediately obvious that there is something very special about this beautiful tall ship: despite the almost 100-year history of this great tall ship, which had circumnavigated the world twice, it was equipped to the highest standard. We were met by the trainer, the crew and the guest relations manager and were assigned our cabins below deck. They featured all the necessary amenities: air conditioning, running hot and cold water, shower and WC. Later, we had dinner on the upper deck, where the participants could start to get to know each other in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.
