Meet at Kraken's home port, Gunwharf Quays before traveling to the start at the Yacht Squadron, off Cowes.

Starting in August 2021, 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 750nM of some of the most exciting offshore yacht racing there is.

The Fastnet has got to be on every sailors bucket list as it challenges our inshore and offshore skills. Kraken's amazing Fastnet Package includes a Professional Skipper, Navigator along with 2 x watch leaders on board for all water training and races.

The Boat - Kraken (ex telefonica Black) 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 Kraken 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
