Description

Alcaidesa Marina Gibraltar to Las Palmas

£650

5 days, 4 Nights

Experience the thrill of sailing on a high-performance Volvo Open 70 in the Atlantic Ocean while honing your skills and building your miles. These trips are for everyone, whether you are a novice or experienced sailor. You can get involved as much as you like, or you can sit back, enjoy the mid-Atlantic sail.

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. Best of all you’ll get at least 700 miles in your logbook.

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.

The trip includes wet weather gear, safety equipment, all berthing and fuel costs and your food onboard.
