An incredible video of an ARC Rally crossing.

Fantastic short video of Milanto crossing the Atlantic in 2013. Now you can see an ARC experience and why they won the Nautor Transatlantic Cup - because they were having fun!

This gives you a brief but effective look into life on board . If you want to read more visit the ARC Rally section

Do get in touch for this Rally or any further sailing ideas you may have.

Milanto has decided not to sail home

After last years rather exhausting transatlantic the decision was made to return Milanto on the BBC Tennessee using the services of Peters and May. Next time we meet up she will be in Genoa ETA 17 days

Delayed! Now 10:30 on Monday 24th November.

So first of all they wanted us to leave in the afternoon  and then it was decided, quite sensibly, that there was no point leaving  two hours before sundown with winds gusting [even if the boats could have managed to get out of the marina]. As it was some have had their hull paint chipped, having been pushing against the mooring last night. 

Still sunny but winds gusting........

Family Charter

I have just finished a wonderful 10 days with a great family from Milan sailing around the Costa Smeralda.  Received the cutest video to thank me - the youngest son wants me to bring Milanto up the Naviglio... think there might be some technical problems with that one!
