4 Nights

This is a thrill seekers dream. Fast sailing, rocky coastlines, salty sea spray, and bracing winds; this can all be found when living the simple life on board the high-performance Volvo Open 70. This race around Ireland will show of stunning scenery, which you can appreciate as you speed your way to the finish line.

You’ll join our team for an entire campaign, as part of this, you will be included in the entire Round Ireland Race. The campaign will include two training days, plus two qualifying races, (Myth of Malham and De Guingand Bowl).

As a part of the race crew, you will have the opportunity to helm, trim and grind your way all the way around Ireland! You will be sailing with the pro crew, with some world-class coaching, so you’ll both race hard and learn on the job.

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 and the most exhilarating ride. We do it just as the elite ocean racers do so you truly get a genuine experience.
