Fastnet Race

Starting in 2023, the race will take us through The Needles Channel, and will follow the southern coastline of England, westward down the English Channel, before rounding Land’s End. After crossing the Celtic Sea, the race rounds the Fastnet Rock off the southwest coast of Ireland. Returning to the new host finish port of Cherbourg, with around 695NM of some of the most exciting offshore yacht racing there is.

The Fastnet has got to be on every sailor’s bucket list as it challenges our inshore and offshore skills.

  • All race entry and mooring fees for training weekends, qualifying races and the Fastnet Race itself.
  • Professional skipper and mate, both of which are Yachtmasters.
  • Accommodation and food on board whilst racing.
  • Plus a team t-shirt and jacket that you get to keep!
  • Transport to and from boat
  • Meals offboard
  • Sailing gear
  • Personal insurance
