Sailing experience is not important; the crew on board will guide you while you take place on the boat. This tour is full of action while you race with your own race boat against other participants. After the race you and the other sailors can enjoy a ‘victory’ rum punch and you could take a look in the souvenir shop.
This Regatta challenge takes about 1.5 hours, subject to wind and water conditions. While you board a unique official sailing boat you’ll get a short briefing and along with the crew of the regatta challenge every participant gets appointed to carry out special tasks to fulfill during the race. The recommended minimum age is twelve years old, however, children with sailing experience are also allowed with a minimum age of seven.
It is recommended to bring soft soled shoes, a pair of dry clothes and towels. There is a small storage in every race boat to store small bags or other belongings. In addition, sunscreen and some extra cash are also recommended.
Every day the regatta times are: 8.30AM, 10.00AM, 11.45AM and 1.30PM.
Anybody who likes a thrilling experience. This regatta is an unique opportunity to participate without any prior sailing experience necessary. Be aware that you will be part of a regatta on sea, so it might be a bit rough sometimes.
