During the seven days of the learning retreat participants sailed around the Dubrovnik majestic historic core, visited the lighthouse of St. Andrew built in 1873. and scaled the walls in Ston. The three biggest islands of the Elaphiti served as the perfect harbour for sail boats during the centuries, and proved so once again for the Big Data Sailing Academy. But the biggest excitement was caused by the Mljet Island National Park and its lakes. Most of the attendees commented that they could hardly imagine such beauty on the Old Continent.

Educational programs on sailing boats is a new concept developed by Business Sailing Experience Agency. Each day starts with a relaxing sailing trip to a desired location. Sail boats serve two purposes. They act as a floating hotel, but also build team spirit among the participants. That cohesion brings about a better understanding during the educational program which of course results in higher quality learning.
