De Guingand Bowl Race
- Race Date: 2017-05-13
DATE: Saturday 13th May
COURSE: Cowes – Marks - Solent
DISTANCE (nm): 110-160
Presented to the club by ‘Buster’ (Vice Commodore 1957-1959) and Mrs De Guingand, the Bowl goes to the winner of the annual race bearing their name. This will head east from the Royal Yacht Squadron line, rounding marks and waypoints, and taking in the headlands of the central English Channel, before returning to the Solent to finish.
Complex tides and the rounding of virtual marks adds to the challenge for the skippers and crews. In this format, inshore specialists have the opportunity to excel in this offshore race.
