After receiving an overwhelming interest in the Atlantic Rally Cruisers (ARC) this year, we decided to plan a transatlantic crossing of our own, a bit different to how we usually sail. Prepare to embark on an extraordinary maritime adventure as we invite you to join us on our Transatlantic Crossing aboard the exquisite Bali 5.4 catamaran. This voyage offers an unparalleled blend of luxury and adventure unlike anything we have offered before at Sail Racing Academy.

Our journey begins from the stunning shores of Las Palmas, Spain. As you step aboard the Bali 5.4, you’ll be enveloped in an atmosphere of adventure and comfort, and please note that you may be sharing rooms with fellow crew members, enhancing the sense of camaraderie and adventure. This remarkable catamaran has been meticulously designed to redefine luxury travel at sea. Join us for an unforgettable journey where luxury and adventure converge on the Bali 5.4.

Though Sail Racing Academy is all for everyone enjoying themselves, safety remains our top priority.

What to Expect
  • No PassengersYou can expect to be actively involved in sailing the boat, there isn't any rail meat on our boats. Please expect the prep week to be hard work. Getting a boat ready to cross an ocean is a huge undertaking, and we can't do it without everyone pulling in the same direction. This is also a great opportunity to learn the systems onboard and bond with your fellow crew mates.
  • Racing Frame of MindAlthough we aren't participating in a race, maintaining the mindset of racing adds that extra something special: working as a team, powered only by the wind, through squalls and becalmed weather.This extra challenge makes the arrival into Martinique all that more rewarding.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Bali 5.4 is a 2022 54ft Catamaran typically used for luxury charters, making it the nicest opportunity Sail Racing Academy has ever been able to offer. With spacious cabins, en suites, and air con, Bali 5.4 offers a comfortable way to participate in the challenging transatlantic crossing.
