Fastnet 2019

Fastnet 2019

2 training weekends and up to 11 races including the Fastnet.

We are after committed team members, not people who just want to tick off a Fastnet and spend all their time on Facebook. This doesn’t mean you need to be an experienced racer but we expect people to get up for their watches on time and really try on behalf of all the team.


Wild Spirit on our way to winning 3 Peaks yacht Race 2018

Objectives
1) Safely complete the race
2) Enjoy ourselves
3) Do as well as we can

Risks
4) We don’t qualify, but we have more races schedules than most ‘Pay to Play’ operators and I can probably persuade the RORC to accept qualifying miles from the JOG races plus Volvo Round Ireland.
5) Something happens to Wild Spirit or the Skipper—we may be able to arrange a substitute yacht acceptable to the RORC and we have several potential substitutes for skipper.
6) Our entry application is not accepted by the RORC as they are always oversubscribed. But I am a RORC member and we get priority. If our entry is not accepted then it is full refund.
We will do our best to manage any risks but can’t give guarantees.
Wild Spirit is coded to MCA standards plus complies with RYA and RORC/WSF standards and is correctly insured for all races, training etc.
Policies etc
As long as it is legal and we don’t have to join in we don’t mind what you believe in or what gender or race you are. If you have bits missing or other issues and we can cope with any resulting problems we can probably welcome you to the team, it is about what you can do.
We don’t drink and sail, we do have a few drinks after races but it isn’t compulsory.
Wild Spirit is Non Smoking, Non-Vaping and absolutely no illegal substances.
We don’t hold mail out lists and the only people we will give your details to are other team members or those with legal power to require them e.g. MCA.
End of the small print—if you can’t trust the people you sail with you are on the wrong boat
