The Channel Race was originally the second ‘ocean race’, established by the Ocean Racing Club in 1928. In those days the race was aimed towards smaller boats and the course included the Cherbourg Breakwater. In recent years this course has been set around marks, the exact route decided after taking into account the wind and tidal conditions.
