Over 600 miles of thrilling offshore racing, the Rolex Fastnet Race is one of the most prestigious racing events on the sailing calendar. Taking place every other year, it has earned the reputation as one of the most demanding offshore races and is widely considered one of the world's classic ocean races.
On 6 August 2017 more than 250 boats will meet at the start line in Cowes and head out on to the English Channel and across the Irish Sea heading towards infamous Fastnet Rock. After rounding the Rock they then continue past the Isles of Scilly and back to Plymouth to the finish line (with fantastic celebrations onshore).
Depending on weather conditions the race can take between 4-6 days and conditions can vary between light breezes to full-blown gales. The aim of our event is to safely complete the race whilst being as competitive as possible.
As one of the few all-female race teams taking part, we're always hoping to better our last result, bearing in mind that it really is the taking part that matters. With an experienced race skipper and first mate on board, racing safely while having fun is paramount. You will be a key member of the team in helping to achieve success!
This race will probably be one of the toughest events you will ever undertake in your life - are you ready to take on the challenge?!
