Why sail with First Offshore Racing?

We exist to enable keen weekend sailors to get offshore by running training weekends and competing in RORC Offshore Races.

You will be completely involved in the running of the boat - if nav and tactics are your thing, we will work together; if it is sail trim or helming, we will show you have to get the best out of our fully optimised race boat. We build a tightly knit team through the event.

Our aim? To sail really well, and to have massive fun whilst we do.

All we ask is decent fitness and some race experience - we will guide you all the way. For the more experienced, we focus on race strategy, weather routing and fine tuning our boat trim.
