Myth of Malham Race

DATE: Saturday 23rd May
COURSE: Cowes – Eddystone Lighthouse – Solent finish
DISTANCE (nm): 230 

The race around Eddystone Lighthouse is typically the most popular in Rolex Fastnet years, mirroring the first 130nm miles of the season's main event.

Date: Saturday 23rd May

Course: Cowes – Eddystone Lighthouse – Solent finish

Distance (nm): 230

The race around Eddystone Lighthouse is one of the most popular as it provides crews with a great opportunity to try out the first part of the Rolex Fastnet Race course. However even in 'off' years this is a race worth attempting as it takes in some of the most challenging and complex tidal gates around notable headlands that include Portland Bill and Start Point. This race provides a real challenge for navigators and tacticians, and usually a great downwind ride back to the finish.
