Corporate Figaro experience days

Join the Academy for a day of high-octane Figaro sailing on the south coast.

Hoist the main, trim the sails and take to the helm beside Britain’s top up and coming solo sailors as part of a unique racing experience aboard Artemis’ fleet of five identical Figaro Bénéteau IIs.

The ultimate test of physical and mental endurance, this exclusive sailing experience provides a unique insight into the challenges of solo offshore sailing and the thrill of the Figaro. Regarded as the one of the world’s most competitive and dynamic racing circuits in the world, guests are invited to come and experience the intensity of the Figaro for themselves, going head to head as part of a days racing out on the Solent.

Kick starting the day with breakfast, a briefing and an introduction to the experienced Academy skippers, crews will then take to the water for a morning of race preparation and training. Recovery and nutrition is key to success for any solo offshore skipper and a hamper of race food will be provided for sailors to refuel before the start gun sounds on an exciting afternoon of head to head Figaro racing. Leaving all rivalry out on the water, all crew are invited to join in a drink to the day’s victor.

Cowes Week

Cowes Week is the world’s premier sailing regatta, with over 1,000 yachts and 8,000 competitors taking part in some top-class sailing. This eight-day event has a rich heritage having run since 1826 and attracts a wide range of competitors from true amateurs to Olympic and World champions.

During Cowes Week, the Artemis Offshore Academy’s fleet of five Figaro Bénéteau II’s take to the water for a week of blue on blue racing, as part of the ‘Hunters Challenge’.

Tacking and gybing through the busy Cowes Week fleet, the highly tuned Figaros crewed by experienced Artemis skippers and guests will go head to head out on the racecourse as part of the annual in-house sailing regatta.

Results are recorded and a prize for the winning boat will be awarded daily, with points culminating in an overall ‘Hunters Challenge’ champion at the end of the week.
