Atlantic Blast

Atlantic Blast

24 Mar — 24 Apr 2022
Antigua — Portsmouth
£3000 (Per Person)

Experience the thrill of sailing on a high-performance Volvo Open 70 in the Atlantic Ocean from Antigua to Portsmouth (UK) via the Azores, while honing your skills and building over 3,600 nautical miles in the process. 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.

During this epic adventure, you will have the opportunity to helm, trim, practice evolutions, passage plan, weather route and if you are a budding yacht master you can have the opportunity to learn under the watchful eye of a Yachtmaster instructor. Best of all you’ll get at least 3,600 miles in your logbook.

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
