Power your way past the Channel Islands as you race from Cowes to St Malo

2 Nights: 17 -19 July 2020

£695 per person

Another classic RORC race – and one of the oldest events on the calendar – takes you from Cowes to St Malo, France. The race will provide us with a varied and interesting course, as once we’ve have headed west out of the Solent, our first natural race markers are the amazing Channel Islands, which often prove challenging to negotiate as we blast towards the Breton Coast.

We will have a thrilling night sail and have to be on our toes as there will be strong competition. We will be achieving approximately 175nM. After crossing the finish line, we will end the race in the stunning walled town of St Malo, which after a hard race is a welcome treat!

St Malo is a stunning fishing market town, famous for its oyster restaurants and fine dining. Fortunately, we will have ample time after the race to wander the cobbled streets and soak up the atmosphere before settling down to a cold bottle of something nice.

We will then take a gentle cruise back to the Solent, giving us time to reflect on the amazing adventure we’ve all just been on!
