Offshore Sailing Itinerary

Our sailing itinerary was specifically designed to accommodate sailors of all skill levels, be it a trans-Atlantic yacht race like the Cape 2 Rio or a leisurely circumnavigation of the windward Caribbean Islands.

 

Expand your proficiency in the fundamentals of offshore sailing, the art of capable seafaring, and develop a risk management mindset essential to crossing oceans safely. You will learn boat preparation and provisioning for offshore sailing, boat handling, weather forecasting, traditional navigation techniques, maintenance at sea and how to manage life onboard.

Our offshore sailing schedule includes our OCEAN GLOBE RACE training program. OGR crew members will join passages over 2500 nautical miles in preparation for the race. All passages include exclusive opportunities to engage with our Ocean Globe Race crew before and during the race.
