"And we haven't even started with the Welcome of the Viking Explorers 2022, we needed to open the sign up for the 6th edition as emails kept rolling in," says Carlota Texeira, PR for the Viking Explorers.
The Viking explorers have experienced a high acceptance by sailors due to the different rally format, in a reduced fleet of maximum 25 boats.
Many sailors have been waiting for years, or on stand by due to the pandemic, to fulfil their dreams of crossing the Atlantic. Most rallies are big fleets or racing events whereas the Viking Explorers focuses more on small reduced and private rally.
Many entries for the Viking Explorers 2023 6th edition have been in contact with us for the last years, waiting to find the right moment to cross, delaying their trip due to the pandemic and everchanging situation in countries and borders.
“It is a great pleasure to have continued with the Viking Explorers rally through the pandemic. We continue to operate and organise the fleet of participating yachts in the safest possible way working with many government officials to ensure protocols are adhered to. Each year the success with the rally is down to the participating crew onboard the yachts, and keeping the numbers controlled we can develop a great friendship and a happy group together!”, says Oliver Solanas Heinrichs, managing director of Viking Explorers
The sign up for the 6th event of the friendly rally “Viking Explorers 2023” counts already with 18 preliminary entries and is officially open.
