Taking place every two years (when the year is an odd year), The Rolex Fastnet is a classic offshore race that is challenging and known to test both inshore and offshore skills. In order to race in the Fastnet you have to complete a number of qualifying events, all of which are included in our package, as well as a practice weekend.
The Rolex Fastnet is an iconic amateur/pro racing event. Raced over 608 nautical miles this is a demanding and exciting race. The Race starts from Cowes, on the Isle of Wight and travels west, leaving the Solent and travelling through The Needles channel.
