Gibraltar Raid 

Monday 10th October 2021

.Anarchy Sailing invites you to join us for a blast down the Portuguese Coast

& the Iberian Peninsular to Gibraltar.

The Starting point:

The event sets off in September planned for the 27th.

You will need to be flexible as we will have one eye on the weather to ensure

a safe passage.

Last year we holed up in Vigo for 2 days with stops at Cascais & Vilamoura just for the hell of it.

We will eventually be heading for Malta this year and the Middle Sea Race unless Covid 19 continues to be a persistent pain in the  backside.

We can make as many stops as we like. We know which ones to avoid and those to embrace. A particular favourite was Baiona  just south of Vigo. Cascais is so friendly a stop there is always appealing. We can even try new ports for a run ashore. Although avoiding Finistere, Porto and Peniche will be a must. Just grubby places with little charm although the back streets of Porto are appealing.

 

End Point:

The Gibraltar Raid ends in Ocean Village Marina a short walk from the Airport. Facilities there are great. The only marina we have been to that has a plush free standing bath in an enclosed private suite. Even the laundry facilities are second to none.

Dolphins everywhere on the way down. Never seen so many. A new pod every 4 hours. Play a bit of Jamiroquai on the Fusion and Dolphins just appear, don't get the same response with AC DC

We will also sail through or close to the exact co ordinates for the Battle of Trafalgar where we pay a little tribute to all the sailors who gave their lives regardless of nation.

RACE PACKAGE DETAILS

Included within your booking are the following:

  • Skipper & Mate (mate if required).

  • All Mooring & Berthing Fees

  • All onboard food whilst at Sea

  • Free Loan of Musto Foul weather kit (if required)

  • All Safety equipment 

  • All  Accommodation is onboard

EXPERIANCE REQUIRED

No experience is required as we will sail at a pace to complete a safe passage.

However you do need to be physically fit. We don't mean like a pro or even a weekend jogger. Just a good standard of well being.

Sailing requires physical effort so you got to be able to move around, pull on ropes (we don't call them ropes).

In return for your given experience level we will do our best to expand that for you.

We don't treat our crew as rail meat. This is an opportunity to learn through experience. You will be asked to be involved in all aspects of sailing a yacht on a passage including helm and navigation with guidance and us by your side.

HOW TO BOOK

Well as you are reading this you must have a Computer, Tablet or a Smartphone or some magical device we are oblivious too.

So given your a tech wizard try one of these:

EMAIL:    skipper@anarchysailing.co.uk

PHONE:  +44(0)77870403888

 

We genuinely discourage the use of Semaphore (waving flags around), morse code by lamp or telegraph, Smoke Signals, Chinese Whispers or "my mates ask me to ask you"

Or use our carefully grafted form below and we will get back to you.

Please Note

By the nature of our business we are often on the water and don't man a full time office. Once about 5-10 miles offshore telephone signal is at best poor.

We therefore can't always provide an immediate response but we do promise to get back to you. We want your custom.

Anarchy Sailing is about fun first.

That said we love to race and we love to beat our rivals.

Each year we invest more into our yachts.

Sails, sail configuration to optimise performance against rating.

Smoother hull, new electronics and all kit replace when needed including halyards, sheets etc. 

We will always present the yacht in the best possible condition so there are no excuses on the water.

Ultimately we are a TEAM and regardless of your previous experience you will become a key member of the TEAM.

Remember      Life's a riot
