Our Fastnet skipper's take on what you can expect...

"The Fastnet is a simply awesome race. It's demanding and great fun to compete in. Unlike most races, the Fastnet does require a fair bit of training and preparation, which is why we build essential familiarisation training, race training and sea survival training into our programme over the year.

With regards to Bella, she's a really comfortable vessel to race on and unlike a lot of competing vessels, we will not be 'packing crew on'. With just seven guest crew, you can be assured of some comfort on this 50ft vessel.

As part of our crew ethos we strive to create, we provide all participants with a custom Fastnet 2017 crew shirt."
