After a busy winter season in the Caribbean, the Sail Racing Academy will be heading back to the UK from Antigua via the Azores.
This trip offers our crew members the opportunity to fulfil a life long dream to cross the Atlantic. The trip will also give you the opportunity to visit the beautiful Azores. From there, you can disembark, or you can stay with us to return our fleet to Hamble.
Though Sail Racing Academy is all for everyone enjoying themselves, safety remains our top priority. For peace of mind, we have spared no expense in ensuring that our boat is equipped to the highest level.

What to Expect
Professional InstructionOur Skippers are experienced instructors that make every crew member feel welcome and tailor their delivery to the experience and style of the crew
Competitive boatAlthough the taking part is often fun, we believe the full experience comes from pushing ourselves to the max and competing with other boats on the water with a view to win
High safety standardsMaintaining and equipping a yacht to a high standard is not an easy task. No expense is spared in ensuring the best equipment is selected and repairs are undertaken quickly and proficiently.
No PassengersAlthough we are happy to provide sight seeing adventures, this experience is a regatta so you can expect to be actively involved in sailing the boat, there isn't any rail meat on our boats.
