Our Upcoming Events
RORC Caribbean 600
It was a great adventure and experience. Feedback is nothing but great. Andy, Paul, Neil, and Jenn are class acts. Boat in great shape, clean, and competitive. Great experience on and off the boat. Thanks for everything. I would definitely sail with GYR again.
YM Ocean Passage: Gibraltar to Canary Islands
I had an amazing time! Over 700nm covered and lots of sextant sights taken. Neil, our skipper, was outstanding. I would highly recommend Global Yacht Training.
BVI 2022 - Hilary C
We had an amazing time! Neil and Katy, along with your Trainee, Adam were absolute pros both on and off the water. We felt very lucky to be in their charge. A great result, challenging chilled but competitive week - the 1st in Class was a bonus!
RTI Yacht Charter
Global Yacht Racing put together a superb charter for the RTI. Our reunion of experienced Round The World Clipper sailors is now bitten by the thrill of fast-paced round-the-cans racing!
As yacht owners ourselves and keen RORC racers we wanted to hone our race skills. A series of highly focused weekends raised our skill level in all areas and prepared us for a full season of racing. Our results proved the training from experienced sailors was well worthwhile.
Rolex Fastnet 2019
An extremely professional campaign which has spurred me into more offshore sailing. I am now looking ahead to the Rolex Middle Sea Race!
My father signed me up for the RORC C600. I enjoyed meeting some cool people (and great sailors) in a fun, yet competitive environment. We did a really nice job (achieving a 3rd in Class) in a very tight race. Andy is a cool guy and a great instructor. I learned a ton!
The team's expectations have been met and exceeded - we'll all be on a high for days......... It is great to sail with Andy, a great instructor who was always happy to help our learning by answering all our questions and share his experiences. Most importantly, it is also brilliant to sail with a company who take the racing seriously (not just getting us round) and still have an enormous amount of fun and some serious belly laughs
I would recommend anyone that wants a life changing experience to try offshore yacht racing with Global Yacht Racing. Be prepared for the unpleasant cold moments, but also to have your breath taken away with nature's brilliance which one would never see on land
Andy's ability to provide expert tips and suggestions to enhance the sailing whilst keeping a great level of humour, fun and laughs made this trip fly past. Being my first trip on a race yacht was a challenge which Andy helped everybody work through and changing headsails soon became a fast and fluid routine - after a few soakings! The most memorable part of this trip had to be surfing down waves at 10 knots in beautiful sunshine with the stereo blasting out Who Let The Dogs Out and having the very fun race skipper trainee Kate as a watch mate. Fantastic
