Special Rate | Watch Ocean Race On Sailboat

Posted on

Alicante, Spain is the starting point for the 2011-2012 Volvo Ocean Race, and luxury sailing charter vessel PHILANDER wants you to be part of the action. 

The 40 meter yacht is offering a special charter rate to watch the opening ceremonies and the start of Leg 1 of the world’s most famous round-the-globe sailing race.


The 39,000 mile (72,000k), nine-month odyssey pits man against nature in an ultimate test of courage and stamina across treacherous open seas. During the race, crews will experience life at the extreme: no fresh food is permitted on board, so they will live off freeze-dried meals.  Temperature will vary from -5 to +40 degrees Celsius, and the sailors will only take one change of clothes. The crew will trust their lives to the boat and the skipper to survive hunger, sleep deprivation, and whatever nature hurls their way.



In stark contrast, the opening festivities rival the atmosphere of the Cannes Film Festival and offer a chance to meet the crews, see the yachts, and celebrate the sport of sailing.  From October 14 to November 5, a jam-packed three-week period will offer an in-port race, a legends regatta, a pro-am race, and the start of Leg 1.

Sail yacht Philanderer is a 40 meter (131′) yacht with guest accommodations for 10 and deck space for 18 for cocktail parties and social events.  Her professional crew of 7 will attend to every need during the charter in Alicante.  



For the event, the yacht is offering a rate of  €35,000 for 5 days minimum between October 29th and November 5th. The rate includes the yacht, crew, and use of onboard recreational amenities, such as the ship’s gym and sauna.  Of course, guests will also enjoy the best seats in the house for watching the racing action up close!  All expenses (meals, bar, etc) are extra.



2012 is the year of special yachting events in Europe – from film festivals,  to Grand Prix Formula One auto races, to the summer Olympic games. 

Don’t forget  – advance reservations for London Olympics Yacht Charters should be made by January, 2012.
