Starting in August 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.
