Charter change of pace: an Open 70 racer


Thrill-seekers are invited to experience a taste of Volvo Open 70 racing.

Project Racing operates a Volvo 70 charter business based in Ocean Village, Southampton, England.

“We pride ourselves in offering hands on sailing experiences on our Volvo Open 70 “Monster Project,” the company website reads. “Whether its cruising, adventure sailing or competitive racing we can create a charter package that suits you.”

The outfit’s 2013-14 season will see Monster Project line up to some of the top racing events in the U.K., Europe and the Caribbean.

Options are available to charter the Volvo 70 to race in the world famous Rolex Fastnet Race or the Rolex Middle Sea Race.

Monster Project is the only Volvo 70 available for charter in the world. She is one of the fastest monohulls in the U.K. and is a previous holder of the Round Britain & Ireland record.
