Viking Explorers Atlantic Ocean Rally

Viking Explorers Rally

Gran Canaria, Canary Islands - The Viking Explorers Rally announces Sevenstar Yacht Transport as Official Yacht Transport Partner.

Sevenstar Yacht Transport is delighted to announce its collaboration with The Viking Explorers Rally, the premier cruising rally for adventurous sailors, as the Official Yacht Transport Partner of the rally. Scheduled to set sail on the 6th of January 2024, the seventh edition promises to be an extraordinary adventure for all participants as they cross the Atlantic with the expert assistance of the organization and in collaboration with Sevenstar Yacht Transport.

Embarking on an oceanic adventure has been a dream for many sailors, and The Viking Explorers Rally offers a unique opportunity for aspiring passage makers to turn that dream into a reality. By joining this beloved cruising rally, participants have the chance to undertake their ocean crossing as part of a fleet, guided by the friendly and experienced rally organization. After embarking on an exhilarating sailing journey following the trade winds across the Atlantic and exploring the Caribbean, participants can rely on Sevenstar's expertise to ship their yachts back home, avoiding the hardships and wear & tear associated with sailing back to Europe against the weather.

"Choosing Sevenstar Yacht Transport as our Official Yacht Transport Partner for the 2024 edition of The Viking Explorers Rally was a natural decision," said Oliver Solanas Heinrichs, Managing Director of the Viking Explorers. "Their unparalleled reputation and expertise in yacht transportation ensure that our participants can focus on the adventure of a lifetime without worrying about the logistical complexities of bringing their yachts back home."

Crossing the Atlantic Ocean back home can pose significant challenges and risks for sailors, making yacht transportation a safer and more efficient alternative. On the Northerly route back, the Atlantic Ocean is known for its vastness, unpredictable weather patterns, and challenging sea state. Sailing against prevailing winds can result in extended voyage durations, increased fuel consumption, and potential exposure to serious weather conditions. In contrast, transporting your yacht back home with a reputable yacht transport company ensures professional handling, optimal safety measures, and a streamlined process. It eliminates the uncertainties and dangers associated with a long and difficult return journey, allowing yacht owners to protect their yachts from unnecessary wear and tear.

"The Viking Explorers Rally perfectly aligns with our commitment to safety and enabling memorable sailing experiences," said Marieke Derks, a dedicated cruising expert at Sevenstar Yacht Transport. "We are delighted to partner with The Viking Explorers Rally and provide our comprehensive logistical services to the participants, ensuring their yachts are safely transported back home after an incredible adventure across the Atlantic and the Caribbean."

Marieke Derks is fully emerged in the cruising world and is a passionate destination expert. She has been a representative for Sevenstar Yacht Transport since 2013 and is renowned for her exceptional customer service and commitment to delivering yachts safely and efficiently to destinations worldwide. She will attend to the rally preparations in December 2023 in Las Palmas, available for all questions regarding yacht transport.
