A truly Global Challenge

The idea of ordinary people undertaking tough sailing and yacht racing challenges is not a new one. Every year more and more ordinary people with no previous ocean racing experience are signing up for sailing adventures and round the world racing for the 'Experience of a Lifetime.' But what of those who want more than 'an experience' – how about really learning yacht racing skills and tactics, competing against other experienced crews and training hard with a dedicated team on performance race yachts in well known regattas and offshore races?
