Llagut Rowing Regatta
Lloret Convention Bureau
The llagut, as it is called in Catalan, is a typical Mediterranean rowing boat. With seats for eight rowers plus a coxswain, it captures an exceptional spirit of team-work and encourages a strong relationship between the crew. Learning how to row increases different abilities and helps people discover facets of their personality that they would perhaps be unaware of in the office.
While learning the different manoeuvres you will also be put in situations that occur in the working world: decision-making, overcoming difficulties, reacting quickly, leading groups, working as a team, and more. All of this will take place surrounded by the calm of the sea, the soothing sounds of the oars on the water, and the boat gliding forwards with every stroke.
During this activity you will discover the history and different parts of the llagut, and you will start to learn the basic principles of rowing techniques. We will visit coves that are difficult to access by land, and whenever you feel like it and the sea allows, you will be able to go for a swim. To finish off, if there are a minimum of two llaguts (16 people), you will be able to enjoy the unique experience of a regatta with your workmates.
Once back on land, we will toast the objectives achieved.
