Racing Results

Choosing the right sailing yacht for offshore cruising is exciting. While Island Packet is not a racing yacht per se, we’re honored to be counted among the competition’s best. However, what really floats our boat is how we impact the enjoyment and eventual success of your voyages.

New developments in design and technology aside, circumnavigation is not an easy task. Sailing the world is still far more than just setting the autopilot and enjoying a drink. Below are our top three thoughts for success.


1--- Spend as much prep and planning time as possible. Write everything down. Make itemized lists and check them off.

2 --- Go with the current and the winds, you’ll stay within the bandwidth of good weather.


3 --- Lastly, focus on and pick the right seakind AND seaworthy yacht for your travels. This will increase your comfort and could literally save your life one day.
