It only comes round once every other year and is renowned as one of the yachting calendar's most exhilarating and toughest races and now you can charter a yacht to compete in the RORC Fastnet Race. The Royal Ocean Racing Club's (RORC) famous race takes a 608 mile course from Cowes in the Isle of Wight towards the Fastnet Rock off Southwest Ireland, before going round the rock and heading back to the finish line in Plymouth. This is a race with a lot of history and one that requires every ounce of each team members' energy and commitment in order to achieve a good result: when was the last time you really pushed yourself?

Ready-made teams can hire one of our race yachts and enjoy the whole boat charter event with friends, colleagues or family, whilst still benefitting from a race-ready yacht and experienced race skipper onboard.

Course Duration:

The Fastnet Race 2015 starts on Sunday 16th August. It usually takes around a week to complete, although it depends on how fast you race!
