Competitively Priced

For the racing pedigree of this yacht we feel we offer the most value for money available on the present race charter market, we offer a very personal in-depth insight to this prestigious yacht race having a successful history resulting in second overhaul with our previous yacht. We are a small business with less overheads concentrating solely on one yacht. The yacht your racing on will be just as well equipped and looked after. Possibly to a higher standard as we treat her as our baby with loads of TLC and constant upgrades including a vast wardrobe of sails to give you every opportunity of a respectable result. We still race her hard but it all boils down to the team so be part of this TEAM to make a dream become reality.

Price: £3,200

Should you require RYA & ISAF sea survival training we can arrange this for you. There will be an additional charge for this please enquire if required.
