Why YFA

„I’ll do business with anyone, but I’ll only go sailing with gentlemen.“

YFA is a pioneer of event management in sailing environment in the Czech Republic. We have been organising events since 2004 and delivered events for both national and international corporate clients.

We are proud to say that it is usually for the first time at our events that the corporate teams fully understand and appreciate what it means „to be in the same boat“.

Events on sailing boats are one of the most successful client, loyalty or teambuilding programmes.  You will hardly find a more suitable and exciting setting for bringing participants closer together and also strengthening the fundamental business values such as loyalty, responsibility and team spirit.

We offer unforgettable experience and new dimension of your corporate events that will literally be a breath of fresh air to your business. Our team delivers everything from formalities up to an experienced skipper. Your event will be in safe hands with the professionals from YFA.
