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 be sitting on the rail.
The Course - Coastal
Depending on the weather, the race will begin in Marsamxett Harbour, head towards the Island of Gozo and return past Comino. The course of the above coastal race may be altered depending on weather conditions. Final instructions for the coastal race will be given during the Coastal Race Briefing.
The Course – Rolex Middle Sea
The Rolex Middle Sea Race course is 606 nautical miles long and is sailed anti-clockwise. Starting from the Grand Harbour, Valletta, beneath Fort St Angelo and the Saluting Battery in Valletta, the fleet heads North along the Eastern coasts of Sicily up towards the Straits of Messina. Mt. Etna is usually visible on the fleets port side, billowing ashes and lava throughout the night. Once through the Straits, the course leads North to the Aeolian Islands and the active volcano of Stromboli where the yachts turn West to the Egadi Islands.
Passing between Marettimo and Favignana the crews head South towards the island of Lampedusa leaving Pantelleria to port.
