The Fastnet Race is a classic. Take your place on our Fastnet campaign and become part of something special. Train and compete with a Fastnet yacht racing team and experience one of the greatest races in the world. The Fastnet Race Challenger package includes team gear, comprehensive race training & three RORC qualifying races and the RYA Sea Survival & ISAF Offshore safety course.
