The Rolex Fastnet Race, a revered offshore yacht race, unfolds biennially in the United Kingdom under the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) orchestration. The 2025 edition promises an elevated level of competition as it serves as the finale to the esteemed Admiral’s Cup.

Renowned for attracting the some of the best sailors in the world, in 2025 we will be entering an array of yachts across categories – from IRC Super Zero to Multihulls and IRC 2 – all ready for you to book a spot on the race crew. The course starts in Cowes, Isle of Wight, and since 2021, finishes in Cherbourg, France, having previously finished in Plymouth, UK.

Over the decades, the Fastnet Race has cemented its place as a premier offshore yacht race, and with its inclusion in the Admiral’s Cup for 2025, this year’s competition is set to be unforgettable.
