Teammate racing on the RORC Transatlantic Race

Dates: 5 January 2022 à 8 h 00 min - 24 January 2022 à 17 h 00 min


Price: 6375€

Embark as a teammate racing on the RORC Transatlantic Race. Departing from Lanzarote in the Canary islands, heading to Grenada in the Caribbean to participate in an “offshore” race of more than 3000 nautical miles (5500 km). On board Libertalia, crewed Volvo 60, enjoy a unique offshore racing experience in the IRC Zero class. An unique opportunity to confront yourself in the fleet and experience extraordinary moments within a crew throughout a training program over 3 days before leaving Lanzarote or while delivering from Lorient in South Brittany.

Teammate racing on an XXL transatlantic

We propose you to be part of the crew of a Volvo 60, 19.50m racing monohull to enter the RORC Transatlantic Race. Supervised by four professional sailors (skipper Captain 200 Sailing, navigator, number one and tactician), the spirit of competition is essential. Getting involved as a teammate in such an event, whatever your level, is not trivial. Libertalia is an efficient and extreme racing sailboat. It is a demanding and powerful unit, a Formula 1 of the seas with very spartan comfort.

The duration of boarding is 20 days. You will embark in Lanzarote or Lorient La Base for those who wish to deliver Libertalia from Brittany to the Canary islands from where the RORC Transatlantic Race will start. The training days and / or the delivering allow the team members to understand the boat, to get to know each other and to assess the levels of each one. On board, navigation during the race is punctuated by the watchings: up, down and “stand by”.

A joint organization between two eminent yacht clubs

The RORC Transatlantic Race is the longest offshore race in the RORC Championship. It was initiated a few years ago to join the famous RORC Caribbean 600 (where we will be present and for which registrations are possible). This allows RORC members and Maxi Yachts owners to race across the Atlantic before entering the racing season in the Caribbean.

The 2022 edition of the RORC Transatlantic Race materializes a collaboration between two eminent yacht clubs: the Royal Ocean Racing Club and the Yacht Club de France. They have united for this edition between Lanzarote and the Caribbean. The Yacht Club de France, based in Paris, wishes to expand its racing program. He therefore decided to establish an alliance with the Royal Ocean Racing Club and the International Maxi Association in order to promote it among its members and affiliated clubs.
Modern IRC boats, multihulls as well as classic yachts are invited to participate in the 8th edition of this annual race which each year attracts competitors from all over the world.

Communication on board

The means of communication on board are reserved for the safety of the board. Communications by satellite phone (Iridium) or email are therefore not offered. Before you leave, let your loved ones know that you will not be reachable until after your crossing. Our team only contacts families ashore if there is a problem on board. So no news, good news!
The boat is “tracked” and visible on the race website or on the YB Races smartphone application.
