This training weekend in December is our second preparation weekend in a series for the 2019 Rolex Fastnet race, and we welcome anyone who would like to experience racing offshore.

The training crew meets on board on Friday evening, which gives us time to run through a full safety briefing, get the boat organised and discuss the plan for the weekend before heading out early Saturday morning. During the weekend we run through various crew positions and go over the deck layout and equipment in detail before a focus on manoeuvres and boat speed.

More details on:

If the weather suits, we will sail overnight on Saturday in the Channel, if not we will stay in Cowes at the Yacht Haven, eat ashore and talk about what salty sea dogs we all are.
