Origin Vigo, Spain
Destination Gibraltar
Description

Experience the thrill of sailing on a high-performance Volvo Open 70 while honing your skills and building your miles.

After leaving Vigo we head down the Portuguese coast and experience some of the best surfing swells. There is nothing like the feeling of her taking off down one of these waves. The next challenge is going through the straights of Gibraltar and you know the beer is close when you see the rock!

These trips are for everyone, wither you are a novice or experienced sailor. You will be put on a watch system with an experienced watch leader and get a true offshore passage experience.

Over the 5 days you will have the opportunity to helm, trim, practice evolutions, passage plan and weather route.

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.
