5 Day Offshore Volvo Experience - Sold out

Experience the thrill of sailing on a high-performance Volvo Open 70 in the Atlantic Ocean while honing your skills and building your miles.

28 Sep — 02 Oct 2021
Alcaidesa Marina, Gibraltar — Cagliari, Italy
£950 (Per Person)

Experience the thrill of sailing on a high-performance Volvo Open 70 while honing your skills and building your miles.

We will be berthed in Alcaidesa marina and will have a great sail out of the bay under the rock of Gibraltar. We will then see what route the winds take us but will end up in Cagliari, Sardinia with at least 700nm in your log book.

These trips are for everyone, whether you are a novice or experienced sailor. You will be put on a watch system with an experienced watch leader and get a true offshore passage experience.

Over the 5 days you will have the opportunity to helm, trim, practice evolutions, passage plan and weather route.

Don’t think this will be a luxury ride! Such a high-performance racing yacht does not come with many creature comforts. Cramped quarters, freeze dried food and basic accommodation are the trade-off for a fast boat, many miles and the most exhilarating ride. We do it just as the elite ocean racers do so you truly get a genuine experience.

The trip includes wet weather gear, safety equipment, all berthing and fuel costs and your food onboard.

Extras Included

•  Safety Equipment (Lifejacket & Tether) •  Wet Weather Gear / Foulies •  Food & Drink Whilst On-Board

Training Included

•  Pre-Departure Safety Briefing
