Team Challenge Racing is an offshore sailing team, which provides young and talented sailors between the ages of 18 and 35 with the chance to compete as part of a high performance team.
The campaign allows sailors to develop in the world of offshore sailing, creating a team of unique individuals who thrive from the support of each other and who excel in the toughest of situations. Our team is created upon a strong foundation of core values: Passion, Resilience, Professionalism, Respect, Sustainability and Teamwork.
Team Challenge Racing aims to have a lasting impact within the sailing world and hopes to inspire future generations of offshore sailors. Creating a pathway for sailors to achieve their goals based upon merit and ability.
Over the course of a 6 year campaign Team Challenge Racing aims to develop a squad of sailors to compete in the toughest offshore races and sailing records including: The Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race, Rolex Sydney Hobart Race, and RORC Transatlantic Race.
The main focus of this young and talented crew is the journey leading up to and including a fully funded Volvo Ocean Race Campaign (Now managed by Atlant Ocean Racing). This allows Team Challenge Racing to compete on a global stage against the top international sailors. Providing the opportunity to promote young talent whilst competing in the world’s toughest sporting event with a highly cohesive and competitive team.
The future of this ambitious team looks bright with many of their sailors competing in international events including the Fast 40+ Class, European Championships and RORC Offshore Series. The goal is clear and their enthusiasm raw, the possibilities are endless?
