- 5 Day Mile Builder Volvo 70
- Date: 26 Aug — 30 Aug 2020
- Location: Portsmouth, UK
- Price: £650 (Per Person)
Over the 5 days, 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 skipper a 60-mile passage.
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.
Some of the planned trips include sailing down the Jurassic coast to Weymouth, the Channel island and France. On the first day, after a safety brief, deck orientation, skills and drills we will get out the charts, assess the weather and come up with our destinations.
Join Volvo 70 Kraken
Kraken 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!
On Kraken 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.
