Yesterday, over 100 Race Crew set sail for the first time with their Skipper, First Mate and fellow teammates on the first of five Level 4 Training Courses.
Level 4 is the final level of training that all Race Crew are required to complete. After learning key skills, safety and seamanship on Levels 1-3, Level 4 is all about safety drills, race tactics and above all, a strong focus on building a team culture on board.

The yachts are now out training on the Solent and English Channel for four more days. Follow our Instagram for the latest highlights from on the water.
