2.5+ Hours Adrenaline Fun

For all sportive cruise boat guests: Join us pro-actively on the 50ft Ocean racer CrossRoads for 2.5 hours adrenaline fun, followed by a 45 minutes entertaining rum/punch-swim!

Sail the coast to the Salt Pier, turn back, on the wind and discover the freedom of the Caribbean seas. Hoist the sails, take the wheel, operate the powerful winches, trim the main and high aspect jib and be part of a team.
Your skippers are 2 qualified Yacht Master Ocean with a combined 150.000 NM experience.

Open bar with water and soft drinks (2 USD). Upon arrival (after the sailing) alcoholic drinks: rum/punch, beer or wine (2.5 USD) while taking a swim.

Dust off your topsides and towels and step on board!

Departure and arrival Karels Breach Bar, respective 500 and 800 meter from the South and North terminal.


 

This is a true blast from start to finish; a fantastic experience for all thrill seekers who wish to know or once in their life what ocean racing is all about.

 


Note that you will always be responsible for your own safety during the trip and that you must follow the instructions of the skippers, who will always be concerned about your well-being. The skippers carry high credentials: both are certified Yacht Master Ocean with a combined 150.000 NM of experience. The yacht is rated in the race division of the Caribbean Sailing Association and is in full race condition with brand-new racing sails.

Not included: personal insurances (health care, belongings).

Participants: 45 USD

 

 

This sportive sailing clinic can sometimes be wet. Bring takkies for safe footing and if possible, a jacket against wind chill.

Cameras and cellphones should be water protected. But not to worry, we can store your precious items below deck, and we will provide you with GoPro footage of the trip.

Toilet on board.

A maximum of 10 participants.

Participants will receive a certificate of competence.


 

The moment you step on board of the Racer CrossRoads you feel directly the power invested in the yacht. And when the enormous mainsail is hoisted, the tension builds up. Then with the foresails up the yacht kicks off like a racing horse. You embrace a pure adrenaline rush. Feel the excitement as the yacht tacks at high speed, skimming over the water, leaving you breathless!
