Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, 22 November – 10 December 2019
Every November since 1986 the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers has set sail from Las Palmas, bound 2,700 nautical miles westward across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. We will be using Volvo 60 Challenger for this event which means that we will have plenty of opportunities to experience the higher speeds and quicker transit time associated with this kind of performance vessel. We ask all crew to bear in mind though that safety and not speed is our primary concern.
Brisbane Noumea Race, 27 May- 6 June 2020
The 850nm Brisbane to Noumea Race is a fantastic ocean race that takes us from the start line in Moreton Bay, Brisbane Australia, to the finish in Noumea in beautiful French New Caledonia, the doorstep to some of the remotest and most beautiful anchorages in the world. This race is organised and conducted by the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron with the co-operation of Cercle Nautique Caledonien.
New Caledonia Groupama Race, 11-20 June 2020
The 654 nm New Caledonia Groupama Race is described as the world’s longest windward/leeward race. It starts from Nouméa on June 14 and takes a counter clockwise course around New Caledonia, alongside reefs and inside the UNESCO World Heritage listed lagoon, with only one compulsory waypoint: “North of the Grand Passage which is North of the Belep Islands”.
Newport Bermuda Race, 17 June 2020
The Newport-Bermuda Race is a 635Nm offshore race with the longest history in North American Offshore sailing. Although not the longest or most gruelling of races the dash over to the ‘Onion Patch’ is one of the most popular and highly regarded races in the world.
If you have been thinking you might one day do the Bermuda Race-do it in style with a World Class Skipper, a Pedigree Race Boat and Full safety & Deck Operations training- all at a great price.
Transat Quebec Saint-Malo, 1-31 July 2020
The Transat Québec Saint-Malo Race occurs only every four years-so like the Vendee Globe it has special significance and weight compared to yearly regattas and events, Particularly for the inhabitants for Québec who have a special connection to the history the race recalls.
We have already filled one boat for this event and now 3/14 positions on Challenger are booked.
