Maiden (and YOU!) in the Caribbean 600

Who wants to race around the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean, on the star of the silver screen and oceans alike, the legendary yacht Maiden? Who wants to stand at Tracy Edwards’ helm, sailing with today‚Äôs top sailors including Liz Wardley? It may sound like just a dream… but this February, there is ONE spot open for an intrepid, motivated individual to join and race with the Maiden crew!

The Caribbean 600 is a 600-mile race around 11 Caribbean islands and is on the bucket list of many offshore sailors. This year, the 2020 race will be held between the 24th – 28th of February, starting from Antigua. Applications are now open and will close on the 30th of January, so get in touch soon to be in with a chance of gaining the spot onboard. Anyone can apply, from seasoned sailors to those with no sailing experience (but an adventurous spirit!). All donations and funds raised go to The Maiden Factor Foundation, supporting the empowerment and education of girls all over the world.
