Le Pingouin - stoked for Caribbean 600, Heineken & Rolex Regattas - Thinking about monohull record for C600... Log-In to Post/Reply

The last year has been pretty exciting, with Le Pingouin and Brad Van Liew having raced around the world solo to victory in the Velux 5 Oceans, winning every leg in the process. Le Pingouin is an amazing Open 60 race machine. Sailing consistently at 25+ knots sometimes feels more like flying than sailing!

Hitting 30+ knots on this carbon bullet speed sled is quite the adrenaline rush!


We wanted to let SB and anyone else know that we have a limited number of crew positions available for our Caribbean racing circuit early next year. Sailing on LP is incredible and the trade winds of the Caribbean will only make it sweeter. The schedule includes the Caribbean 600, St. Maarten Heineken Regatta and St. Thomas International Rolex Regatta, plus options to crew offshore on the transit there and back from Charleston. You’re welcome to join us as an individual or group and the link below provides the details. If you’re not up for the adventure, we would appreciate it if you would pass this info on to any friends or others that may find it exciting.

As an exciting incentive, we would like to return a portion of any crew fees paid by community sailing members or yacht club members as contributions to their sailing programs.

FULL DETAILS: http://www.oceanracing.org/...nCaribbeanRacing.pdf

Please contact our office to discuss any questions you may have or to save your spot on LP. We hope you can join us in the Caribbean!

Cheers,
The Team at Van Liew Ventures, Inc.

Getting pumped! Looks like the entries are lining up for the Carib events... Should be a few fun boats to play with down south.

Here are the links to each event website - looking forward to hitting the start lines!

Here's the latest news!!

The Caribbean racing schedule we set for early 2012 is hot! We are excited that so many people have expressed interest and booked their once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sail on Le Pingouin. After all, it is quite simply one of the fastest boats in the world and these events will offer the chance to really blast off and see the speed! This is a chance to sail with a pro crew on one of the most advanced sailing machines of all time!

The offshore deliveries and serious racing of the Caribbean 600 are for those that really want to experience an Open 60 under sail while pushing their own boundaries of comfort in the tough offshore environment. Marque events like the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta and Rolex International Regatta will be fantastic as well, but very different in that you'll race all day, party as much as you like, sleep, get up and do it all again. Here is the latest scoop on the very few remaining spots to race with Team Lazarus aboard Le Pingouin.

Delivery - Charleston to Antigua
February 7-13, 2012
2 slots open

Event - Caribbean 600
February 20-23, 2012
2 slots open

Event - St. Maarten Heineken Regatta
March 1-4
4 slots open (deposit pending on 2)

Event - St. Thomas Rolex International Regatta
March 28-April 1
FULL - Booked with no open spaces

Delivery - St. Thomas to Charleston
1 slot open

Get your gear on and let's go have some fun! We anticipate the crew positions above being filled before mid-December, so if you are looking for that special holiday gift for yourself or someone special please give us a call soon. We have some suggestions on spas and nearby islands if you want to make it a family affair.

The schedule is subject to change based on weather and other variables. For a full list of information regarding fees and travel suggestions, please contact us at info@oceanracing.org or call 843-416-8319.

St. Thomas Rolex is full, down to 3 slots available on St. Maarten Heineken and due to the number of inquiries accepting serious resumes only for Caribbean 600....

Hop on LP and blast around down south!

The Heineken was named largest regatta in the Caribbean for a reason! http://www.heinekenregatta.com/Videos/
