Description This weekend is part of our preparation for the 2019 Rolex Fastnet race, and we welcome anyone who would like to experience racing offshore - particularly when you need to get out on the water when the Solent is deserted! 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. If the weather suits, we will do some night sailing on Saturday in the Channel before heading to Cowes for the night, if not we will come in to Cowes at the Yacht Haven that evening, eat ashore and talk about what salty sea dogs we all are.
