crew member racing offshore
Come on board as a crew member racing offshore the fifth edition of the DRHEAM CUP 1000. From Cherbourg-en-Cottentin, take part in an offshore race of 1000 nautical miles via the Fastnet. Live an offshore racing experience aboard our crewed Volvo 60 in the Open Big Monohull class. Imoca, Ocean Fifty and other Class 40 are also registered on this 1000NM course. In 2022, Libertalia, our crewed Volvo 60, finished first of the race in real time.

Crew member racing on a XXL offshore 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 2024. The race will leave Cherbourg-en-Cottentin to join La Trinité-sur-Mer.
Part of the great tactical course of 1000 nautical miles in IRC0, we’ll sail along the Imoca and the Class 40. 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 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 offshore racing mode

We propose you to be part of the crew aboard a Volvo 60 to race the DHREAM CUP 1000. Supervised by four professional sailors (skipper Captain 200, second, tactician, N°1), 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 in Lorient La Base to reach Cherbourg-en-Cottentin from where the DRHEAM CUP will start. While delivering the boat, team members will be able to know each other and assess each other’s levels. After the race, the return navigation will be carried out from La Trinité-sur-Mer to Lorient (possibility to disembark in La Trinité sur Mer).
