Sign up here for your next adventure

David Hows and Rick Durham

Our mission while you are aboard is share our knowledge and experience to ensure you get to play an active role as a crew member on our team. On a passage you will be an equal part of the crew and responsible for all aspects of boat navigation, handling and trimming. If you join us for an ocean race or regatta you will be assigned a racing role as an active part of our race team and experience all of the highs, lows and highlights that come with offshore racing in some spectacular locations. This is not a yacht charter or luxury cruise, you will be hands on from the "get go" and your experience can be described as an ocean racing adventure or passage sailing expedition. This is ocean sailing, its the real thing. Join us for an adventure now, it will be challenging, you will have to deal with whatever mother nature serves up, you will see some spectacular sights and the memories will last you a lifetime...
