North Atlantic Tour 2020-2021 and the Ocean Globe Race 2023
Instead of hauling out the boat for the winter 2020 – 2021 we decided to do a Milky Way, an Atlantic roundtrip.
The Atlantic Rally for Cruisers is already full but we have created a waiting list that might open opportunities to join, just let us know and we put you in the loop for a place.
There is plenty of good sailing for everyone in the upcoming 2020 and 2021. Try one of our long hauls, they are real sea voyages, real blue water sailing with all the excitement and fun.
The trip from Helsinki to Las Palmas offers Baltic gems as well as cosy coastal cities littered along the North Sea coast. Later on we will look into the French channel sweet spots, cross the bay of Biscay and leisure sail down the Portuguese coastline visiting stunning “Old World" heritage cites. The final trip will be from south of Portugal to the Canaries, a ten day high seas voyage close to the African coast. Along the way there will be plenty of time for deep sea fishing, to visit spectacular sights ashore as well as an ever changing restaurant scene with all mouthwatering delicacies offered by the different cuisines of various countries passing by. Steal some time of and join us for this epic trip in late summer and autumn of 2020.
In the spring 2021 in the Caribbean we offer a whole program of cruising and some regattas as Antigua Sailing Week and Caribbean 600. If you know you need a yacht for any of these venues get in touch and get an early bird discount.
We are also encouraging groups to contact us for availability for whole boat charter in the Caribbean as well as in Scandinavia.
In May 2021 we head back to Europa via the Azores, where we will stay for a week getting familiar with this spectacular group of islands. You can join in either in the Caribbean or the Azores. Our final destination on the continent is Cherbourg.
In June the boat will cruise the North Sea, cross the Baltic and finally end up in festivities around the Swan Europeans in Stockholm 2021.
You will find all details in our events section!
We have also announced the boat to the upcoming Ocean Globe Race (OGR) in 2023. We will be racing in the classic section where no modern navigation and/or other aids are allowed. This race is a homage to the old Whitbread races in the 70 and 80:ties and the organizer is lining up a bunch of mostly old Swan boats to compete around the world. The project is still in its infancy and there is lots of work to be done before the starting line but the boat seems to be right and after all ocean adventures we’ve been part of earlier the OGR seems to be the natural next step.
Do you feel you would have something to bring to this project? We already have the boat but we need sponsors, crew and a whole lots of bits and pieces to get everything ready. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more questions and discussions!
