The team of 10-12 people will sail on a sports yacht from Rhodes, Greece to Palermo, Sicily to the incredible Palermo — Monte Carlo regatta under the guidance of a professional skipper.

We are planning to sail during the daytime, but night crossings are also possible. It all depends on the weather conditions. This crossing is for those who want to test themselves and add nautical miles to their logbooks, those who want to learn to manage a sports yacht and understand its difference from cruise yachts.

Every day, we will sail from 30 to 100 miles. The entire route is 800 nautical miles.
