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!

Solent Shakedown - 2014 Inshore Series Race 1 Report
Race 1 of the Solo Offshore Racing Club 2014 season, the Solent Shakedown, was exactly that!! 15 out of 19 entries braved the elements for a testing 23 mile race in the Eastern Solent with winds up to 25 knots. Blown mainsails, exploding jib tracks, problematic spinnaker take downs were order of the day but the results were close! The top 3 podium results finished within only 21 seconds on IRC handicap.
