The Med | V70 | 10 day Mile Builder

Gibraltar to Malta

At least 1100 miles

10 days


2nd October – 12th October

Med sailing offers up some stunning scenery, great weather and some fantastic ports to visit. Now imagine doing all that on a Volvo 70! You can experience the thrill and speed of sailing on a high-performance Volvo Open 70 while honing your skills and building your miles.

Over the 10 days you will have the opportunity to helm, trim, practice evolutions, passage plan and weather route. These trips are for everyone, wither you are a novice or experienced sailor.

We will be looking to explore some of North Africa and Western Europe along the way.

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.
