Milanto and the Trans-Atlantic trip to the Mediterranean

The route from Antigua to Viareggio

The route from Antigua to Viareggio

Read about the journey from Antigua to Gibraltar by clicking on OCEAN.

LEG 1  ANTIGUA TO GIBRALTAR

Joining the vessel in Antigua, the crew are now bound for Gibraltar. This 3,400nm, blue water passage will  provide experience in extended cruising and open water crossings. Starting with a 12 knot wind this promises to be an exhilarating passage. Some crew will be joining Milanto in approximately 2 weeks in the Azores.

LEG 2  GIBRALTAR TO VIAREGGIO

The route will most likely take Milanto past the Balearic islands of Mallorca and Menorca to the final destination of Viareggio in Tuscany.

Happy Easter to all our friends

Saint Barths

Saint Barths

Hundreds of superyacht owners, crews and industry leaders have chosen to spend their long Easter Weekend at the St Barths Bucket, where pursuit-style racing of absolutely drop-dead gorgeous mega sailing yachts has become an annual affair since 1995.

Here are some photos from Saturday’s race and a couple of shots to show how popular this island is over Easter – shame it was raining so much!

Milanto is in Gustavia in case any of you are around……..

RORC Caribbean 600

Well, as Louay Habib wrote on the RORC website it was ‘A tough day in Paradise’…….”any notion that the RORC Caribbean 600 is a jolly around the Caribbean has been totally dispelled. Warm conditions and spectacular surroundings apart, racing 600 miles in big conditions is taking its toll!

Milanto and her crew kept faith , while several boats had to retire as the conditions were so tough, a lot of wind and really big waves made it an exhausting few days racing .But it was well worth it when at the prize giving  Milanto took 2nd place in the IRC 3 division. Many thanks to Sue, Mark, Neal, Andy, Fergus, Joshua, David and  Robin .

Two other Swans performed well:Christian Reynolds’  Swan 53, Northern Child, and Joseph Mele’s  Swan 44, Triple Lindy.

The really lucky crew were those on board Peter Aschenbrenner’s 63ft Trimaran, Paradox as they finished in under 2 days – amazing.
