Join a Sail Race Crew crossing the Atlantic
Atlantic Rally for Cruisers
Crossing the Atlantic is a tipping point for most sailors – once completed all areas of the world’s oceans suddenly become possible frontiers to be explored and enjoyed. As with any event, our intention is to teach as much about ocean voyaging and seamanship as we can- what is exciting about the Transat is that a prolonged period of tuition is available allowing everyone on board to get to grips with all aspects of the boat.
We will be using our Whitbread 60 or later 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.
Transat Quebec Saint-Malo
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.
For this event, we will be using Volvo 60 ‘Challenger’. She will take 14 lucky crew (plus two professionals) on a once in a lifetime experience sailing East across the Atlantic to Cartier’s home port of St.Malo France. We will be competing in the ‘Open’ Division (boats longer dan 45 ft) which will include 6 x 60′ ocean racing monohulls all with charter crew giving us both a fair and balanced fleet in which to compete and a realistic chance of winning serious silverware!
