The Yacht
Spirit of Juno is a Farr 65 that has raced round the World, she was built to carry up to 19 crew though we will have a maximum of 10 on board. She is a tough vessel built to withstand the Southern Ocean so if we do get a gale she is the right yacht to be on. In 2016 we were the first ‘Sea School’ yacht home in the Caribbean 600 when about 30% of the others retired.

Cheap flights and easy connections from Glasgow airport and to Dublin at the finish. The train station at Corpach is a very short walk from the boat. Mike has booked on the 1221 train from GLA to Corpach–4 hours of one of the most scenic train lines in the World. He paid £20 for his ticket.

This is after the 3 Peaks yacht Race and there is a slightly increased risk element for this trip so in the event of bad weather disrupting the race we will use Oban as the alternative starting point as it still works for flights etc.

A rare opportunity to build miles in one of the most beautiful cruising areas in the World.
