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 500 nautical miles as we sail Volvo Open 70 “Kraken” from Vigo to Gibraltar as part of our Biscay Bash series.
On this leg, take in beautiful coastlines, and embrace the sunshine as you head to warmer waters. Keep your eye out for dolphins and marine wildlife, as you power towards your destination, windswept, salty, but happy, having accomplished an amazing journey onboard one of the most extream racing yachts. Upon your arrival in Gibraltar, you’ll be greeted by the incredible view of the famous rock of Gibraltar, then wander through the seaside streets where you may come across monkeys, as well as many fish and chip shops; a perfect treat after an adrenaline-fueled voyage on the Volvo 70.
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.
