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. Bagging at least 600 nautical miles as we sail Volvo Open 70 “Kraken” from Cagliari, Sardinia to Valetta, Malta as part of our Biscay Bash series.
On this leg, the final leg of the Bash, take in the salty sea air as you head towards Malta. Passing the tip of Italy on your left and Northern Africa on the right as you power towards your destination, windswept, salty, but happy, having accomplished an amazing journey onboard one of the most extream racing yachts. Known for its Cathedrals, museums, and palaces, Valetta, the tiny capital of Malta will greet you with its 16th-century elegance. Described as ‘a city built by gentlemen, for gentleman’, this Unesco World Heritage site is one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world.
Over 5 days, 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 thrilling 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.
