Departing the Caribbean in the last days of the racing season this passage takes us North and West to Stamford, CT on board a beautiful ocean going race yacht. Whether you have been busy racing, taking it easy cruising in the Caribbean or maybe you just want some more (fast) miles in the logbook, this is an excellent opportunity to sail to North America and experience the impressive offshore conveyor belt system that is the Gulf Stream Current.

Practical Info

The Gulf Stream Flyer is not all tea & biscuits though with strong thermal gradients that can create regular squalls and dramatic weather along the route. If there was ever a boat to take on such a challenge though it has to be this beautiful Volvo 60 which was built to take on the Southern Ocean- we are therefore happy to accept sailors of all skill levels and ages to join us for this exciting and dynamic trip.

ITINERARY

After 2 days of training in beautiful Antigua, we leave the island behind us and head North – next stop, Stamford, some 1,600nm away!

Running at speeds of up to 5 knots North the Gulf Stream makes it’s way up the East Coast of America carrying billions of tons of warm water North as part of one of the planet’s major climatic processes. The result for us is a warm water trip all the way to Stamford.
