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

After exploring the stunning town of Valletta we will set off from Grand harbour and head North to Italy. We will then head west across the Mediterranean and into Gibraltar.

If the winds and time allow we will head up the coast of Sicily past Mt Etna and through the straights of Messina. We will then be greeted by the magnificent Stromboli before arriving in Cagliari for a night.

Other possible stops could include Valencia and Cartagena.

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 10 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
