performance yacht charter

Christian and Lucy at Performance Yacht Charter are a pretty impressive (and really nice) couple.  They sail the world with their two charter yachts, Northern Child, a swan 51, and Smile and Wave, a Beneteau First 40, entering into world renown Yacht Regattas. They’re good friends of us at NauticEd. We first met them in St. Thomas in the USVI in 2011 at the International Rolex Regatta where they raced their sailboat, Northern Child with a combined group of NauticEd students and Safe Passage Sailing Clients.

Provided you’re got a little bit of sailing experience you can VERY  affordably join Christian and Lucy on one of their Regatta Charters. And at NauticEd we TOTALLY endorse this idea. You see at some point, as much as you enjoy our sailing courses you’ve got to get off the computer and get the wind in your face. Being in a charter race regatta is going to be an such an exhilaration that you’ll never forget it plus you’ll get a huge step jump in sailing knowledge from the emersion situation. CAUTION HOOKING UP WITH THESE GUYS WILL BE A LIFE CHANGER.

Christian and Lucy’s talents are proven by the many 1st line honors they taken at various regattas, so when you join them, you’re learning from some of the best.
