FASTNET 2017 - 2 GFS Boats Entered!

We are extremely excited to be entered again into the Rolex Fastnet Race- 600nm of Offshore racing in one of the most world recognised racing events organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC). 

It starts on the 6th August in the Solent and finishes with a fantastic prizegiving and party, in Plymouth. For a boat to take part in the Fastnet it has to meet certain safety requirements, of which our boats take part in many offshore races we are very familiar with the criteria. There are qualifying races which 50% of the crew are required to take part in and are always exciting as they venture out across the chanel or head west along the coast! These are great opportunities for the crew to become familiar with each other and what offshore racing entails! Being an all female team you are in on all the action with us! You won't be held back here! Dream of handling sails on the foredeck? Helming into the night? We coach our teams throughout- you won't be left making teas for the rest of the crew with us- each member is a vital part of the team.

The racing circuit is always exciting  but as the Fastnet is only every two years there is always added hype in the build up to it with fantastic commamaderie with other boats entered too! Its the talk of the town! So why don't you read up about it under our Racing Section, get your racing boots out and sign up for one of the biggest events of the year! The Rolex Fastnet 2017!
