A 250 nautical mile chase upwind west to the Eddystone lighthouse and back to Cowes under spinnaker – perhaps the ultimate windward/leewards race!

In a fleet including some of the top race boats in the World, our IRC class will be closely fought.


Join the Boat: Friday evening 22 May 2020 20:00hrs

Start: Haslar Marina, Gosport, 23 May 2020 07:00hrs (est)

Finish: Haslar Marina, Gosport, 24 May 2020 pm



The race crew meets on board on Friday evening, with a plan to arrive around 20:00 which gives us time to run through a full safety briefing, get the boat organised and discuss our race strategy and tactics over a glass of wine. Friday evening is when we finalise our starting crew positions and set up a buddy and watch system for newer or less experienced crew members.



With a race start of 07:00, we will leave the dock by 05:00 and head to Cowes for the start – breakfast on the way, as a crew sails on it’s stomach!

Once out of the Solent, we start our watch system early, with a 4 hours on 4 hours off rota in daylight and 3 hour watches at night.


Planning to arrive back in the early evening, once the boat is sorted out then head off after a fine cross channel yacht race weekend.
