Join the crew onboard a legendary yacht and battle it to top the podium. You’ll sail shoulder to shoulder with the Austrian Ocean Race Project’s core team, to push the boat to its limit off the coast of Sardinia. As part of the crew, you'll be fully involved in the yacht's preparation and racing. There's no paying to be "just rail meat" here as all crew is fully involved in racing.
