Brief description of the holiday
After finishing 3rd with the fastest skipper in the ARC 2020 rally,
2021 will be our fourth year taking part. Our aim is to be
competitive while having fun and that everyone on board should be
actively involved in all aspects of the boat and the excitement
that taking on a life long dream.
When not taking on a ocean crossing, we can usually be found taking part in races on either side of the Atlantic, or training up the next generation of racing legends. We are currently looking for crew who wish to tick this particular box off their bucket list and who wish to take on the challenge of racing across an ocean.
As joining a boat for 3-4 weeks is a huge commitment, we welcome informal, honest and open chats where we can ensure everyone's expectations are compatible and achievable with their aims. If you do fancy joining a 40foot yacht to take on this challenge with a crew of strangers who will end up as lifelong friends.
First 40.7 Beneteau
Our 2008 First 40.7 is a highly equipped racing cruiser that is both fast and comfortable. British flagged, equipped for offshore racing and transatlantic passages, our boat far surpasses the basic safety standard required.
