Starting and finishing the adventure in Antigua, we will sail to St Maarten, commence one day of training and four days of racing, and embrace a truly unforgettable experience. This regatta is slightly shorter than most on the circuit but is a true bucket-list Caribbean regatta.

Over the course of the race and during training, you will be given world-class coaching from a pro crew, with 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 really get stuck in on this invigorating trip.
