Train with us

We are preparing to sail around the world as participants in the Ocean Globe Race. We have started our training and we have opened a few places so that you can live the experience of sailing in a 1978 Swan 57, learn about safety at sea, watch routines, equipment, maneuvers and much more.
A unique opportunity with a unique boat and crew.

Our training program has 3 levels and different dates for each level, to access you must have some previous nautical "experience".

We leave and arrive in Barcelona and the training lasts 6 days.

If you are interested you can write to whiteshadowogr@gmail.com
and we will give you more details.

There are few seats!
