Atlantic crossing on a catamaran
Lagoon 50, Lagoon 450,
Price per person per day
12 Knots offers you a unique opportunity to undertake a transatlantic passage!
A chance to cross Atlantic Ocean like famous "tea clippers" in the ancient times sailing from Sardinia Island to Caribbean.
All participants will gain great sailing experience: watch keeping day and night, practicing seamanship and celestial navigation – and as a reward sailing with dolphins, watching amazing sunsets and sunrises, great team spirit and finally, the long-awaited earth appearance on the horizon.
During a typical crossing, the trade winds will be Force 4 or 5, with some lighter periods and a few days of winds of 25-plus knots. A flexible sail plan is necessary, because we should take into account changing wind strengths, as there is no one-size-fits-all answer. The most common sail plan is goose winged, with most skippers carrying a specialist downwind sail when the wind is light.
Crossing Atlantic will be from Las Palmas (Canary Islands), via Cape Verde to Caribbean Island St. Lucia. This passage is considered to be one of the safest and thus more attractive. Warm prevailing trade winds together with ocean currents create an ancient sailing corridor.
Total distance of the rally is 2 823 nautical miles, duration about 17 days. Professional skipper and crew of 3 will make your sailing vacation safe and fun.
