Crew member racing on a XXL sailboat race
The opportunity to confront you in the fleet and experience exceptional crew moments with training program during delivery and racing over a dozen days in July 2020. The race will leave Cherbourg-en-Cottentin for join La Trinité-sur-Mer.
Part of the great tactical course of 736 nautical miles in IRC1, the first part takes place in the English Channel. Then, we will bypass the Scilly to “climb” in the Irish Sea and roll up the impressive Fastnet rock planted with its lighthouse.
Then, it will be « downhill » to the Isles of Scilly with probably a mark of course to leave on an edge. The last part of the race will end off or along the Brittany coast to cross the finish line in front of La Trinité-sur-Mer.
A crew engaged in ocean racing mode
We propose you to be part of the crew aboard a 21m monohull to race the DHREAM CUP 700. Supervised by two professional sailors (skipper Captain 200 Sailing and second tactician), the spirit of competition is essential to engage as a crew member in such an event, whatever your level.
Boarding duration is 12 days. You will embark at Lorient La Base to reach Cherbourg-en-Cottentin from where the DRHEAM CUP will start.
