Yacht Racing

In February we have the Caribbean 600 on a Farr 65.

carry on corey

Paul is skippering this one again. If you have a partner that sails but doesn’t race then you could have a few days on Antigua, they go back whilst you selflessly stay on a few days to help the team race.

The C600 is not normally that challenging though we have seen 30 knots which seperates a Farr 65 from the lesser yachts. At £1950 for it is good value especially as, unlike most others, you can stay on board alongside in Nelsons Harbour Falmouth a World Heritage Site.

We will be doing the 3 Peaks Yacht Race . This is a seriously tough race which Paul has done 4 times picking up, silverware every time including the daily Telegraph Cup for Line Honours plus the Barmouth Cup for 1st on IRC in 2018.


Our first race of the season is the Nab Tower JOG race in March and then we have to more JOG races to Cherbourg and back at Easter.

In May we have the Scottish Islands Peaks Race which uses a different handicap system and then just divides the fleet into fast and slow. We are likley to be in the bottom half of the Fast division so acheiving a good result on the water will be particularly difficult, but we shall try.

Hi Paul,
I’m just writing to say how much I enjoyed crewing for you in the recent race to Cherbourg.
I had a great time on board the Wild Spirit, and appreciate all the teaching, advice and patience shown to me by yourself and the rest of the crew.
