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

We will leave Alcaidesa Marina in Gibraltar and go South to Las Palmas. Weather depending we may have a stopover in Morocco.

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
