Embark as a teammate racing RORC Transatlantic Race 2024. 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.
An organization by eminent Royal Ocean Racing Club
Modern IRC boats, multihulls as well as classic yachts are invited to participate in this annual race which each year attracts competitors from all over the world.
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.
Message received from Libertalia – 2022 edition
They took it very badly because the concentration at the helm saw them slipping west, extending their route by as many lost degrees. The squalls remind them not to confuse speed with haste and luffing starts sound like an immediate sanction… the boat lies down, spinnaker slams, orders fly out and it’s still lost ground and places at the ranking.
