Meeting at Kraken's home port, Gunwharf Quays before traveling to race start line is off the Royal Yacht Squadron, Cowes.

This is a highly technical race and involves high level race strategy. This is one of the RoRC's shorter races, which makes it ideal for everyone limited on time but looking to stretch themselves. The race normally takes 24-36hrs and achieves between 110 and 160nms.

As we start the race, from the Royal Yacht Squadron, we will be passing key navigational landmarks before crossing the finish line in the Solent.

She is a stripped out racing boat with very few luxuries, so please expect high side hot bunking, freeze dried food – as the galley consists of a sink and 1 camping stove for boiling water and a very exciting gimbled heads! On board we like to be fully inclusive and give amateur sailors the chance to participate in all aspects of sailing the boat – we can assure you; you will not just be sitting on the rail.
