 Get your adrenaline pumping as you sail a high-performance racing yacht as you blast across Gibraltar.

5 nights: 27 September - 01 October 2022

£950 per person

This trip is for everyone, whether you are a novice or experienced sailor. Bagging at least 350 nautical miles as we sail Volvo Open 70 "Telefonica Black" from Vigo to La Linea passing the coast of Portugal & Spain - a true right of passage for any sailor.

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 extreme racing yachts.

Over 6 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 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.

Starting in the beautiful Vigo, Spain heading down the beautiful Portuguese and Spannish coastline to the destination of glorious Gibraltar.

Your time onboard will involve not only sailing, but authentic racing snack lunches and freeze-dry lunches, meeting and working with lovely people, a huge amount of teamwork, and sitting down at the end of the day with a beer to prepare for the journey the following day.

You’ll arrive in Gibraltar on 01 October 2022. You are welcome to stay on board for the night of the 01 October for arranged onward travel the following day.

  • A place on the crew
  • Professional crew (Skipper, Mate, Navigator and two watch leaders)
  • Food, fuel and mooring fees
  • Travel to or from the boats
  • Food ashore
  • A good level of fitness recommended.
