The Boat

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.

The Course – Les Voiles de St. Barth

This race consists of 4 days of racing with one day of rest half way through. Sailors will be exploring the St Barths coast line over the course of the racing. A full route will be announced closer to departure with race officals taking into consideration the wind and racing conditions.
