Description

We have one place become available on our Fastnet campaign. Alas one of our team has had to step down.

We have already competed in the Myth of Malham, finishing 15th overall out of 140 boats. Hitting speeds in the high teens. A great team, lots of fun. I am open to discussions on price and number of qualifiers.

Our campaign is on Incisor. She is a Corby 45 designed for offshore yacht racing.

In 2015 Cowes Race School 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 11th trip to the 'rock'.
