Dubai’s H1 Incentive Trip to Ras Al Khaimah
- 15 Feb 2022
The Dubai team started the trip to RAK by heading to the Hajjar mountains and completing a 4-hour Survival Course at the newly opened Bear Grylls Explorer’s Camp - the first camp of its kind in the world! We learned the basics of survival by using Bear Grylls’ tried and tested methods. We learned about Protection, Rescue, Water and Fire & Food by finding the best place to take shelter, how to filter water, how to build a fire and how to scavenge for food. The course brought us through water filled wadis at the base of the Jebel Jais Mountain and was a brilliant team building exercise.
After working up an appetite we checked into the Waldorf Astoria where we celebrated the team’s H1 success with a delicious meal at the beautiful Lexington Grill Restaurant.
The following morning, the team played a round of golf at Al Hamra Golf Club. With gale force winds forecast throughout the morning we wrapped up warm, but thankfully the sun came out to join us and we had a great round. We couldn’t play a game of golf without some healthy competition, so we played a Texas Scramble format with some on-course prizes to be won too. Nearest the Pin prize was won by Steve as the only player to hit the green and leaving a 20-yard putt to the flag, and we’ll have to wait for the next round to see who has the Longest Drive as none of us kept it on the fairway - we’re blaming the wind for this! 🤣 Overall champs were the team of Laura, Steve & Darryl and they walked away with the inaugural Redpath Partners Golf Trophy and, of course, bragging rights!
The trip was a great success, and the team came back rejuvenated and ready for 2022
