The Boat

Telefonica Black is a stripped out racing boat with very few luxuries, so please expect high side hot bunking, freeze dried food – as the galley consists of a sink and 1 camping stove for boiling water and a very exciting gimbled heads!

We like to be fully inclusive and give amateur sailors the chance to participate in all aspects of sailing the boat – we can assure you; you will not just be sitting on the rail.

The Course - Caribbean 600

The 600nm course starts just off Nelson’s Dockyard, Antigua and then meanders northbound through the island, before taking a sharp turn South at St. Martin. If the trade winds are doing what they should it’s spinnakers up for the longest leg in the race, down to Guadalupe.

Passing around the south of the French island, we battle to avoid a formidable wind shadow, before passing Antigua for one final victory lap back to Barbuda, a quick gybe at Redonda, then finishing back at Nelson’s Dockyard.
