3 Nights

Another classic RORC race takes you upwind from Cowes to Eddystone Lighthouse, off Plymouth. Then at the lighthouse turning around, popping up the spinnaker, sleigh riding back around the back of the Isle of Wight to finish with a short stitch beat back to Cowes. At 230nms, this is one of the longer RORC races of the season – some call it a mini-fastnet.
