Sailing The term "Outward Bound" originally meant lifting anchor and heading out to the unknown adventures of the open sea. Such a trip is still an integral part of the modern day Outward Bound experience.

Scheme 1. Whaler
Groups sail out in Whaler (a 27 ft, 2 masts sailboat) for the journey to the beautiful islands of the South China Sea. Upon arrival, they construct their beach camp, cook dinner on open fires and prepare for the next day's adventures. They also have to organize the expedition, looking at the chart, set up the options, share duties... This process includes concentration, decision making, leadership skills and creative thinking.
