Cowes-Dinard – St Malo Race 2024

The Cowes- Dinard – St Malo race is one of the oldest events in the RORC racing calendar. The race will provide the team with a varied and interesting course, as once we’ve have headed west out of the Solent, our first natural race markers are the amazing Channel Islands, which often prove challenging to negotiate as we fly towards the Breton Coast.

Being 151 n.mile, this is a great opportunity to gain and develop your skills and knowledge and will add to your nautical miles which will allow you to compete ad fastnet.

Famous for being a fishing town, depending on how the race goes, we hope to explore the streets, soak in the atmosphere and enjoy their specialities, food! Before crusing back to Hamble

We recommend you arrive the day/night before.
