Caribbean to Mediterranean
Aboard S/Y Argo
4,500 Nautical Miles via British Virgin Islands, Azores, Gibraltar, Spain
We’ve been crossing oceans aboard our 112-ft modern schooner S/Y Argo since her launch in 2006 and she’s already circumnavigated the world three times, but this summer 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.
