Welcome to SOLO Offshore Racing Club
We are a virtual yacht club in that we have no premises but what do have is an enthusiastic group of offshore & inshore yacht racers who love "going solo" on the water, and also enjoy a lively gathering afterwards. We sail a range of "Class" boats and IRC cruiser/racers. Anybody is welcome to join our events so long as your boat meets the safety criteria. Budding Vendee aspirants, Figarists, or just wanting to enjoy the personal challenge with like minded sailors, all are welcome!
Our Flickr site has various picture galleries to give you a taste of what we get up to ... Click Here

With four boats in contention to win SORC's overall series & even more for the Inshore Series, the Lay Up race was guaranteed to be exciting even before an active cold front with 30 kt gusts and a 160 degree wind shift was predicted to pass at the scheduled start time! In a close fought race, full of drama, congratulations go to Simon Mitchell for overall victory, and to David Cowell for coming second and going on to win the overall series.
