Join us on the Pogo50 and the Sydney43GTS for the Rolex Middle Sea Race in October 2018

Our Pogo50 “Eros” and our Sydney43GTS “Morpheus” will participate in one of the worlds’ most prestigious offshore races.

Organized by the Royal Offshore Racing Club, this 608nm non-stop real offshore race starting and ending in Malta, stands as one of the offshore classics, together with the Fastnet, the Newport-Bermuda and the Sydney-Hobart.

The Pogo50 is well suited and fully equipped for such long distance racing offering exhilarating speeds but also an excellent level of comfort. In the very tough 2017 edition, when only 35 out 105 boats finished the race, our Pogo50 came 3rd in ORC2!

The Sydney43GTS is a modern IRC optimized racer with an extensive sail wardrobe that can race competitively. However it does have cruising amenities for a crew of 10 offering a decent level of comfort. In 2012  came first in the IRC Div 2 of the famous Sydney-Hobart race.

Our skippers will be the super experienced Pietro D’Ali and Benoit Charon.
