Sailing Programme 2018

In 2017, Jolie Brise took part in the International Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta – a 10,000 nautical mile transatlantic race visiting Portugal, Bermuda, America, Canada and France.

Pupils have crossed the Atlantic on Jolie Brise previously in 2000 and 2009. In 2017, the Captain, first mate and bosun on the leg from Portugal to Bermuda were all former pupils whose love of sailing was sparked by their experiences on Jolie Brise whilst at Dauntsey's.

In 2018, Jolie Brise will head north to join the Tall Ships Races in Norway. The full sailing programme and tracking information will be published here soon.

I have sailed on Jolie Brise in Norway, and across the Bay of Biscay to Portugal, but the highlight for me was sailing across the North Atlantic for 19 days this summer. I have seen incredible things that I could not have experienced anywhere else. It has been life-changing.
