Fastnet 2019

Our main offshore yacht for the 2019 season will be Incisor. She is a Corby 45 designed for offshore yacht racing. She has recently had a big refit, new non-slip deck, re-weighed and re measured. In 2015 we sailed Incisor throughout the RORC offshore program and finished in 5th place in IRC 1 overall for the season. They also won School Boat of the Year.

Incisor is a Corby 45 and sails with a team of 13 offshore. She is a fantastic yacht well suited for the offshore races. In 2017 Fastnet Incisor unfortunately suffered a failure in the rigging just 10 miles from the Fastnet rock. We kept the mast up, but had to retire, getting all on-board safe n sound to an amazingly warm welcome in Baltimore Ireland.

For 2019 Incisor has a brand new mast and rigging. She will also have new North RAW headsails and new spinnakers. Shes going to be fully race ready.

Our philosophy is to coach and train you throughout the program, its not do this, do that. Much more how and why. You will be coached to steer, trim, offshore / inshore tactics, race navigation to name a few. You will be fully involved with the pre-race planning and with decision making throughout the race. We want you to arrive in Plymouth after the Fastnet feeling that not only have you had an amazing time but you have also learnt and greatly improved your sailing skills.

Why choose us? We have over 20 years of experience running Fastnet programs, your coaches have 10,000's of off shore miles and are racing coaches. It will be your skippers 10th trip to the 'rock'. If you are looking for a Fastnet package that really delivers, then look no further.
