Before you compete, you must complete four levels of training on the Solent, UK or in Sydney, Australia.
So, you want to be an ocean-racing athlete and overcome the most challenging conditions on the planet? Then you’ll need to warm up on our compulsory training programme first.
A core element of the race is our pioneering training programme. We’ll kit you out in extreme weatherproof gear as you experience the challenges of life onboard a 68-foot or 70-foot yacht.
From Day One you will build teams, learn the ropes, cook, clean and race. On top of that you’ll learn the basics of yacht maintenance and management, racing tactics, survival at sea and weather routing. Above all, the most important skill you’ll learn is being part of a multi-disciplined, high performance team that will function in every condition that Mother Nature can throw at it.
With lessons based on the experience of having raced over three million miles applied to our global courses, it is in itself a relentless challenge which will see you constantly progressing and striving to ensure that you are trained to the very highest level possible.
