Easter Rising

Pic of previous Fastnet team after race to Cherbourg

Our first big race is at Easter when we have the JOG Cowes to Cherbourg and return race.
last year this was a very cold and often windless race with a high retirement rate. This year it is a morning start so we should be in before it has been dark for long. People often ask how long a race will take, it is hard to say, we have done the 75NM race to Cherbourg in under 12 hours but on one occaision we took almost 26 and crossed the finish line backwards on a slight tide and no wind.

It is a Fastnet year but we will still have several Milebuiders across to France, the Channel Islands and out to the Scillies. These RYA Milebuilding sailing courses are great for those working towards YachtMaster qualifications or those just wanting to build experience.
