Sea Wolves Childhood v65 sailing clinics

You probably always knew it was going to happen! And now the moment is here! And though the “situation” is challenging us. Wolves never give up! So These are the new dates!!

On the 28th and 29th of August and on the 4th and 5th of September 2021 ( Dutch Cojona rules pending ) Sea Wolves TV and VO65 Childhood are organizing the Sea Wolves V65 Childhood training weekends!

Two weekends of full-on sailing experience building onboard the V65 Childhood (Former V65 Brunel, which came in 3rd in the previous Volvo ocean race).

What can you expect?

  1. Meet fellow Sea Wolves from all over the world and enjoy a Cup of something delicious together, and share salty tales!
  2. Get hands-on experience sailing V65 Childhood under the guidance of a professional race crew: Steering, grinding, attempting to rest in a bunk, getting hosed while battling the North Sea in April and enjoying vista’s you will probably tell your kids, friends and family about for years to come!
  3. Meet and great and perhaps toast LIVE or even sail with Florian Rooz
  4. Enjoy the city of The Hague and Dutch hospitality. (Though we can’t guarantee the city will have any restaurants left to open, once the year-long Lockdown is lifted in March. But we will manage 🙂

  • Some Prior sailing experience is highly recommended for joining this clinic. (How much exp is enough…? If you know the basics of sailing and have spend more then 20 hours on a sailing boat in your life, you should be good. Just keep in mind that sailing a v65 (depending on weather conditions) can be an intense physical experience, and the North Sea can be quite harsh also. A good physical condition is important. The v65 is an extreme racing sailboat and we intend to sail her quite hard, so make an honest estimation for yourself if you are ready for a 9 hour sail).
