Weymouth & back - Friday 25th to Monday 28th August
Our first Offshore races of the season take us to Weymouth. A great way for Rookies to start their Offshore solo career with a taxing overnighter, followed by a day of rest before a Sunday day race around Weymouth Bay, and a return race along the stunning Jurassic coast on the Monday. The Wonky Mainsail trophy, a damaged mainsail batten car from Ellen Macarthur's Kingfisher, will be up for grabs on the outward leg.
We are making a block booking in Weymouth for berthing, but space can only be guaranteed for boat names submitted a week in advance!!! That is Saturday 14th, so a good reason to submit your entry in good time.
This is always a popular event and an excellent taster as to what solo yacht racing is all about. We start from Cowes with an overnight race taking us Eastabout the Isle of Wight before heading West along the South Coast to Weymouth. On the Sunday we have an around the cans race out in Weymouth Bay before racing back to the Solent in a day race on the Monday.
As usual, we will have some social dinners ashore, and pontoon prize givings, to provide SORC's unique blend of competitive racing afloat and convivial bonhomie ashore.
SAILING INSTRUCTIONS will be posted here in due course
