Head out of the Solent to the west, follow the coast to the end of Cornwall before heading NW. Then, keep going for the finish line in Cork, Ireland. This 300nm offshore race has a real tactical element with plenty of tidal gates and headlands to consider, as well as a great open sea stretch in the St. Georges Channel.
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.
