Caribbean Racing with "The Project"
Come and join us on board "The Project" to experience some of the 2020 Caribbean Racing Season for yourself.
This season we are offering full-boat Caribbean Racing Charters on board a Sigma 38, for a maximum of 8 people.
"The Project", our Sigma 38, is a fabulously maintained Racer-Cruiser. She is kitted out with a brand new suit of race sails and safety gear as well as all the instruments you could hope for!
Designed as a safe Offshore Racer, she goes extremely well in the wild seas and steady tradewinds of the Caribbean.
