Yacht deliveries with Deep Blue Racing provide a perfect opportunity to gain valuable sea miles towards an RYA Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster certificate. They are also an excellent way for less experienced sailors to experience offshore sailing in a controlled and safe environment whilst visiting some fantastic destinations.
This year we have several spaces aboard Quokka 8, a Grand Soleil 43 on various legs of her 10,000 mile voyage from the UK to the Caribbean via Malta. Round the World Racing Yachtsman, Philippe Falle, will be skippering her and will be on hand to give first class tuition throughout.
The yacht deliveries and mile building voyages with Deep Blue Racing are fun, informative, adventurous and take on a more laid back approach to the normal high octane racing campaigns that we run.
Our Malta to Gibraltar delivery is an 1000Nm voyage that crosses the Mediterranean to Tunisia where (whether depending) we shall stay for two nights in Tabarka. Then after experiencing the flavours of North Africa the second part of the voyage takes Quokka onto Gibraltar where we shall be berth in Bay Marina, which is overlooked by the Rock of Gibraltar that towers 1400ft into the sky.
It is certainly worth going to the summit either by foot or cable car to take in the breathtaking views over Spain and North Africa. IA view not to be missed and the monkey’s at the top are famous for their friendliness too!
Malta is an island steep in history and is well worth a visit, so arriving a couple of days before departure is recommended. The friendliness of the locals combined with an array of museums, cathedrals, stunning architecture and fine cuisine makes for a fantastic sailing destination.
