Date: Friday 4th September

Course: Cowes – Cherbourg

Distance (nm): 75

The last race of the domestic season takes competitors on a dash across the Channel to Cherbourg. The race is usually won and lost in the escape from the Solent, in the strong tides on the approach to Cherbourg, or even the last mile along the inside of the breakwater of the Grande Rade. The race is never over until you are motoring in, ready for the lively welcome that awaits all competitors at the Yacht Club de Cherbourg.

Royal Ocean Racing Club - since 1925

The RORC was founded in 1925 to encourage long distance yacht racing and the design, building and navigation of sailing vessels in which speed and seaworthiness are combined. Today the club encourages ocean, long distance and other forms of yacht racing and yachting activity.
