You can join a race yacht charter crew to race in offshore or inshore regattas with Performance Yacht Racing. The team is usually made up of people of all ages from different backgrounds and nationalities who are all brought together by their love of yacht racing. We race competitively and have some fantastic results over the years. Find out more about our results here.
There is a crew fee payable for each event which includes all yacht costs, food whilst on board, professional tuition and coaching by qualified and experienced race skippers. Our race yachts are commercially coded and maintained to extremely high standards and every detail of the race entry, insurance, paperwork etc is taken care of for you. This gives you the peace of mind that you are getting a package of sailing and racing that is well organised and designed to ensure that all crew achieve their goals, improve their skills and have fun whilst doing so!
When you join a yacht racing crew with us you become a member of the team, we don’t take passengers! This means that everyone takes an active role in the racing of the yacht and everyone gets the chance to learn new skills and teach us some too, we welcome all levels of experience onboard. More often than not you will become a friend too, we’ve been doing this for over ten years now and one of the best things about it is welcoming back crew who have become good mates.
We offer a fantastic program of worldwide regatta and offshore yacht racing including the Rolex Middle Sea Race, the ARC race, The Caribbean 600, St Marten Heineken regatta, BVI Spring regatta, Antigua Week, Cowes Week and Round the Island Race.
