LV Yachting has over 10 years experience in delivering racing yacht charters. When chartering with us, we want you to enjoy the whole experience; from the first time you contact us, to when you return home with fantastic memories from your sailing adventure. We have a range of options from Grand Prix racing yachts to racer cruisers, dependent upon your requirements and experience.
A Race Yacht Charter Service
That exceeds expectations
We go that extra mile
We specialise in arranging bespoke charters and pride ourselves on linking up teams with the best boats for their regatta of choice. If a boat or an event isn’t listed on our website, please contact us as we may have something available or we can use our extensive network.
We are able to provide a whole service package to make sure that everything runs smoothly for you and your team. From arranging berthing and race entry, to providing accommodation and flight recommendations.
Whole boat or Join a Crew
Our yachts are available for whole boat charter with an owner’s representative to ensure you get the most from your yacht. We also offer individual berths for some events, so you may join a crew with a skipper and a first mate to enjoy the racing experience.
Since the beginning Lucy’s energy and enthusiasm has been what keeps so many people coming back again and again. Lucy is an accomplished inshore and offshore racing skipper sailing in excess of 100,000 miles. Lucy’s passion has always been for racing and she enjoys developing the skills of the crews that race with her. Lucy started in the sailing industry owning and running Northern Child, a Swan 51, for racing and cruising charters in the UK and Caribbean which developed into Performance Yacht Charter and now LV Yachting, offering worldwide race charter packages.
“From our initial enquiry setting out our dream scenario for the race over a year in advance, Lucy and her team exceeded our expectations. Any concerns and issues that arose were immediately addressed and solved in the most professional way. The Skipper, yacht and equipment on board were all of the highest level. When can we sign up to race again?”AndreasAtlantic Anniversary Regatta
“A big thanks to LV Yachting for perfect organisation of my race. Coordinating the whole week with you was very efficient and everything worked out perfectly well. In particular for also helping with accommodation, restaurants and even my add on family cruising week in the BVIs. The RORC 600 itself proved to be a real offshore race. We very much enjoyed the race and the conditions were almost perfect for Pata Negra. It’s an astonishing boat and we were supported with Andy who prepared the boat perfectly and was a fantastic help throughout the whole week. A big thanks goes to him, I think he is the perfect man for the job. I definitely can’t t find anything to complain about or improve. If we charter a boat for a race again, I will definitely contact you first! I also hope we were able to give the boat and you some credit by finishing on the podium”DanielRORC 600
“To have your assistance when racing in the 2018 Rolex Middle Sea Race has been great. Your knowledge and contacts have been some of the reasons everything worked out so well for us. From contact with the race organisers & mooring to hotel recommendations and restaurant bookings. In previous years, when sailing abroad from Sweden, we had to fix everything ourselves, but this year we were able to just go! Fantastic! Your service level, positive response and knowledge are just some of the reasons I do, and will continue to, recommend you to the people I think should and would appreciate your level of service. I hope that you can help us/me in the future, you have opened sailing doors!"CarlRolex Middle Sea Race
Before the bumps, blisters, bruises, and most importantly the wonderful memories fade too much I felt it was important to send you a quick note thanking you for one of the most intense and rewarding weeks of my life. You trusted me to do a job I had never done before, you taught me more than I ever imagined I could learn, you pushed me harder than I ever could have pushed myself, and did all of this with a positive and graceful disposition very few instructors posses. You have an amazing gift, and for the sake of all of your students, I hope you keep doing what you love for a very long time.GregSt Maarten
Just a short note to say thanks for all your hard work over the weekend. I thought that you pitched it just right, the conditions were challenging and for a fairly novice crew I think the balance of physical effort, competition and safety was just right.RichardLittle Britain
