RACE TRAINING

Adventure Race Training Weekends

 

First Offshore exists to bridge the gap between bareboat charter boats and RYA school boats. Our crew is mainly made up of enthusiastic weekend sailors looking to sail on a fast and fun boat where they can build on their sailing skills and experience, log RYA miles and have a great fun time whilst doing it.

The boat is run on the basis that everyone gets involved, everyone is aware of our passage plan and everyone gets experience of all the crew positions.  While we spend plenty of time on the water, we choose our destination ports for great food, great scenery and a sense of adventure.

INSPIRE

When you are seeking to build your sailing experience, and looking for adventure; here is your inspiration.

ADVENTURE

Sailing offshore, away from the day sailors, landing on another island – that’s the adventure!

CONNECT

Learning to sail a high performance yacht together as a crew develops great teamwork and connection on the boat.
