Trip highlights

  • Weather routing, ocean weather training and daily Q&A from Simon Rowell
  • Timezero routing and navigation training
  • Atlantic crossing on a Volvo 70, in the conditions she was designed for
  • 3 places for qualifying ocean passage
  • Escape Christmas and bring in the new year with newly forged friends

We have combined forces with Simon Rowell to provide a practical weather routing and ocean weather training passage.

Prior to setting off we will have a web seminar with Simon who will go over all the weather conditions we should expect.

Daily we will email Simon with our observations and he will send the relevant weather info and information on how to fully extract the data you need to make routing decisions.

You are also able to do a Q&A session with Simon (and the Skipper) every day to get full understanding of the weather systems and the impact of the routing decisions.

As a team with the skipper you will then decide the plan for the day and we put it into action.

We feel that this style of direct learning is one of the best ways to build confidence in your skills while is a safe environment working with an extremely experienced team.

We are offering 3 spots for a qualifying ocean passage, if you are interested please email us direct. Please note you need to hold your Yachtmaster Offshore to apply for these places.

This Atlantic crossing on Telefonica Black is not only for the navigators, it is open to everyone as it is always great to have a fantastic mix of people onboard.

You truly get to sail this magnificent boat in conditions she was designed for, to quote one of our crew members on the Caribbean 600 “life is too short to cross oceans on slow boats”

The full time crew will coach you on the helm, through the sail evolutions and if you want to you can head up to the bow for the sail changes. These trips are for everyone, whether you are a novice or experienced sailor. You can get involved as much as you like, or you can sit back, enjoy the mid-Atlantic sail.
