Mile Building

Come and experience what a real long distance racing cruiser can do. We have added a beautiful Swan 56 called Zingala to the fleet so you can experience much longer ocean passages in complete comfort and safety. Zingala has had a total refit to incorporate all the latest equipment. We will be visiting the Madiera islands and the Azores in 2019. So if your looking for milage, Ocean sightings or just the tranquility of the sea this is the yacht for you. This yacht is fully MCA coded to do ocean passages, which means it has had the relevant inspections and has all the safety equipment that allows it to legally carry paying passengers.



Duration & Itinerary

A seven day Milage voyage begins from Rubicon Lanzarote. When you join the yacht on Sunday night at around 1800. You will be met at the marina by Anna and/or Gareth after which we will take you to your yacht before having a drink and chatting about the week ahead. After a safety brief on Monday morning you will set sail from Rubicon to your first point of call depending on the route you have chosen. We return to Rubicon on the following Sunday, aiming to arrive early afternoon.


Exclusive Use or Per Cabin

If you would like the luxury of having the yacht to yourselves so you can choose your route and sail as much or as little as you want then an Exclusive charter is the way to go. Zingala sleeps up to six guests with two double cabins and the saloon for two more people. If your friends or family aren’t into sailing then don’t miss out. Simply book a Cabin for one or two people to share and enjoy the company of your skipper and fellow crew mates on one of our scheduled mile builders.



The yacht is provisioned to an incredibly high standard meaning that a selection of ingredients for breakfasts, lunches and evening meals taken aboard is provided. A welcome pack of wine and beer is also included. Diesel, marina fees (once away from Rubicon) and end-of-the-week cleaning are also included. View the type of meals and snacks that we are talking about.


Prior Experience

Some prior sailing experience and knowledge are required for mile building as these will be offshore and can be challenging conditions.
