About the Rolex Fastnet Race

Since it began in 1925, the Rolex Fastnet Race has grown to become one of ocean racing’s greatest events and along with the Rolex Sydney to Hobart and the Rolex Middle Sea Race is one of the top three offshore races in the world.

The Rolex Fastnet Race takes competitors across 600+ Miles and up to five days battling the wind and tricky tidal conditions to round the Fastnet Rock on the Southern tip of Ireland. Three hundred yachts take part in the bi-annual Fastnet Yacht Race. Fastnet competitors head west down the Solent and out through the Needles, past the major south coast headlands, Anvil Point, Portland Bill, Start Point, and Lands End before rounding the famous Fastnet rock and returning via the Scilly Isles before finishing at Plymouth.

Where?

Why we love the Fastnet race and what our Clients say:

Training and racing with a crew over three months really creates bonds and forges a super team. The Fastnet is often an aspirational race for many people who want to tick the box, but we ensure that it’s also a competitive experience. The Fastnet is incredibly challenging both tactically and physically and the Great British weather can often turn up some surprises; in short you never know what you’re gonna get!

“The Fastnet is on the bucket list for all serious ocean racers. With Performance Yacht Racing we didn’t just complete the race but were a serious contender with great results. Our skipper brought sailors of all different skill levels together to make a team on a well prepared yacht.

“A great event and awesome fun.” Ben Hunter, Australian Fastnet Crew 2017.
