Kick off the RORC offshore season with this great opening race on a top-flight IRC 1 race yacht. This race is more of a sprint than a marathon, with you covering between 110 and 160 nautical miles as you race from Cowes to Le Harve in France (via marks in the Channel). After the race, enjoy the short cruise back to Cowes.

ITINERARY

Start: Cowes Yacht Haven, 05 May 2018 0900hrs

The first offshore race of the domestic season finishes in the second busiest port in France, Le Havre. Depending on the weather conditions, the race may include various marks along the way. It always provides a good shakedown, and sets you up well for the season. Overlooking the finish line, the Société des Régates du Havre hosts the finish with great food and a warm welcome.

Weather and tide dependent, we may drop into Le Havre for some R&R before the delivery cruise back to Cowes.
