This trip offers our crew members the opportunity to fulfil a life long dream to cross the Atlantic eastbound.
The trip will also give you the opportunity to visit the beautiful Azores. From there, you can disembark, or you can stay with the crew to return their fleet to Hamble, England.
Atlantic crossings are at the heart of Another World Adventures – one was the catalyst for our founding! So we recognise that for anyone who undertakes this exciting voyage it’s an opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream. Like all off shore sailing, an Atlantic crossing can be the most wonderful of champagne sailing or a challenge to overcome as a team, embracing a whole lot of fun along the way.

Two sailboats will be heading back to the UK
A 2008 racing-ready Beneteau First 40.7; a racer that embodies all the aspects of a racing pedigree, with the added provisions of comfort in mind. Whether you’re a novice, or an experienced competitor this boat can put a smile on your face.
A 2007 Harmony 52, only 20 of these boats were ever made, they are light spacious, and extremely stable, making them ideal for crossing oceans and offshore sailing. We have invested a huge amount of time and effort in upgrading our vessels to meet the highest of safety standards and be as competitive as possible.
The motivation behind this operator was making access to sail racing more accessible. When the founder wanted to progress from competing in dinghies to moving to bigger boats it became apparent that this could be a hard transition without knowing the right people who already owned yachts... so he charter a boat, found like minded people and divided the cost between those onboard. It's a model that works and since then they've brought crews together around the world to take part in sailing races and ocean crossings. Expect to find a motely crew on board from GAP year students to seasoned sailors in their 70's with lots of nationalities thrown into the mix. Just how we like it!
