Learn how to tune each rig, practice a range of skills and have fun racing in a fleet!

Raul Cabarete

Cabarete has become a premier location for remote workers. Daily practice in a variety of conditions will most certainly give you a leg-up on the competition back home.

“In the morning I work online with my team during business hours in Europe. But in the afternoon I’m enjoying great moments sailing the Atlantic. That combination makes Cabarete the perfect tropical winter destination.”
