Set off on an epic adventure across the iconic Bay of Biscay, arriving on the stunning shores of Sardinia

25 Nights: 14 September - 02 October 2021

£2,175 per person

Experience the thrill of sailing on a high-performance Volvo Open 70 while honing your skills and building your miles. This trip is for everyone, whether you are a novice or experienced sailor. Bag some 2,600nms as we sail Volvo Open 70 "Telefonica Black" from Southampton, UK to Cagliari, Sardinia and cross the infamous Bay of Biscay - a true right of passage for any sailor.

Split into four 5-day legs, with rest days in-between, you will have the opportunity to helm, trim, practice evolutions, passage plan, weather route and if you are a budding yacht master you can have the opportunity to skipper a 60-mile passage under the watchful eye of a Yachtmaster instructor.

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

If you can't join us for the whole trip, why not choose just a couple of legs?
