- Program Description:
We've been crossing oceans aboard our 112-ft modern schooners since 2006, but this trip is your opportunity to do something truly remarkable and sail across the Atlantic Ocean.
It all starts in June when we depart from the British Virgin Islands bound for the very beautiful French Riviera via the Azores, Gibraltar, and Spain. By necessity, this 40-day program will substitute shore time for sea miles as we'll be covering 4,500 plus miles over the course of the trip. Voyage emphasis? Bluewater sailing, and lots of it! Crewing a yacht on a transatlantic voyage is not something many can say they have achieved, yet members of our crew will also earn 3 college credits in Nautical Science and visit Caribbean, Portuguese, British, Spanish and French ports along the way. As a team, your sense of accomplishment will be profound, and as an individual, the experience will set you apart. The skills you'll develop and the challenges you'll overcome are uncommon. Not only a perfect subject for any job interview, but this voyage is also likely to contribute long after you have departed the vessel. After all, we are the sum of our experiences and this one will be indexing.

I came onto this voyage, excited but not really knowing what to expect, I came out of it with a better understanding and new sense of the world. The trip was phenomenal and I am 100% glad I did it. Ever since I was little, my big dream was to do an
Ocean Crossing, and this trip allowed me to follow my dreams. The smell of the fresh ocean air mixed with the sight of nothing but ocean for miles in any direction is incredible, but also very hard to describe to people who have not experienced it. We started out in the BVIs with stops along the way to eventually get to our final destination of France. Along the way, we were doing everything on board. We took turns helming, going on watch, cooking our meals, cleaning up and more. You were a full member of the crew, and had the responsibilities as such. On top of that, we were also taking an oceanography class, which you may be able to get college credit for. It sounds like a lot, but it is completely manageable and you will never be bored. This was an experience that I will never forget and I hope you get the opportunity to as experience it as well.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
