Rolex Fastnet Race 2023

15.7 - 29.7 (or when the race is finished) 2023 — 2600€

The Fastnet Race doesn’t need any introductions. This is the 50th anniversary race and all the signs predict a spectacle we haven’t seen in a long time, if ever. With the start outside Cowes and finishing line in Cherbourg, we are looking at, not only boats from the UK, but many competitors from the European heartlands.

Our intentions is to do a practice run from Germany to the UK pre-race with a starting date at 15.7 to finally arrive, a few days before the actual race starts, to Cowes to suck up some of the pre-race excitement. The ideal would be to join us in Brunsbuettel (Germany) for the tune up sail to the UK. If you have raced with us before and know the boat prior you can join us in Cowes (or any nearby port).

We feel very excited to compete in this Mecca of sailing and the preparations have already started with necessary upgrades etc on the boat for everything to be race-ready when the gun goes.

Join us for this epic adventure!
