You will be given the opportunity to enhance your skills in every job onboard this iconic offshore racing machine. From navigation to helming, with practice in trimming, grinding, and foredeck, you can get as stuck in as you like on this exhilarating trip.

Push your comfort zone for a truly genuine life experience as an elite ocean racer, with basic race yacht accommodation and freeze-dried food: the trade-offs for an invigorating ride.
