Global Yacht Racing realise the importance of bringing the crew together and preparing them, as a team, for a long distance race like the RORC Transatlantic. They offer a pre-race programme that ensures you are prepared and confident around your yacht before the race start. During the pre-race programme you can expect to take part in a range of activities, carried out onshore, alongside in the marina and out on the water, to include safety briefings, sail changes and manoeuvres, as well as covering the use of spinnakers and downwind sailing. This pre-race programme will also involve the purchasing and stowage of provisions as well as social events offered by the Royal Ocean Racing Club; the race organisers.
We have experience of transatlantic racing, having taken part for a number of years in the ARC. Whilst we continue to compete in this Atlantic Rally for Cruisers we are eager to take part in this prestigious RORC event which complements our other RORC events: Caribbean 600, Middle Sea Race, Fastnet and Sydney Hobart Race.
We expect that this event will most likely appeal to a race team looking for a whole boat charter. However, if you are an individual looking to take part in this event then please do get in touch. Offshore yacht racing is about experiencing the powerful beauty of the nature, whether it be a serene sunset or a wild gale whipping the tops of towering waves.
