Like to experience the thrill of sailing on a high-performance Volvo Open 70 in the Solent with the comfort of your own bed at night?
The crew of Kraken (ex Telefonica Black, Volvo Round the World Race) will take you out on the stunning waters of the Solent. You get to feel the power of this amazing boat and have the chance to get involved as much or as little as you like. You will have the opportunity to helm, help with the nav and grind up the sails like a pro crew. Or you can sit back, enjoy the sail and take in the stunning scenery that the south coast has to offer
Don’t think this will be a luxury ride! Such a high-performance racing yacht does not come with many creature comforts. You can witness the cramped quarters that the racers have to sleep in, the carbon fibre racing toilet and enjoy a freeze-dried food lunch just as the elite ocean racers did it, you get a truly genuine experience.
The trip includes wet weather gear, safety equipment and your lunch aboard.
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.
