Rolex Fastnet Campaign 2013
Sail the Legendary Rolex Fastnet Race
The Rolex Fastnet
Race is the highlight of the Royal Ocean Racing Club's
(RORC) calendar. Taking place every other
year, it has earned the reputation as one of the most demanding
offshore races and is widely considered one of the world's classic
The 608 mile Rolex Fastnet Race is a
real test for skipper and crews with its tricky tidal currents and
changeable weather conditions. The race attracts entrants from all
around the globe with a diverse entry ranging from the fastest
grand prix race yachts to small cruiser racer family boats.
Over the past few years Sailing Logic has enjoyed considerable
success at offshore racing. Sailing Logic has won
the 'Best School Boat Trophy' in the Fastnet Race for
the past four races, as well as acheiving outstanding race
results. All this is a testimony to the quality of the tuition and
structure of our racing campaigns, which actively
encourages new-comers to the sport as well providing competitive
racing for more experienced sailors.
All our teams will train together and combine tactical/training
briefings to maximise the facilities and structure we have
implemented. Our teams will learn from each other to constructively
improve the level of all the teams whilst utilising the diverse and
comprehensive experience of our staff.
Our training programme for the Rolex Fastnet
Race is second to none, as endorsed by our
consistently good results. There will be two training weekends and
then four qualifying races which are very much a part of the
training process. This far exceeds the minimum requirement of RORC.
In total you are likley to cover over 1500nM.
Our campaign isn't the cheapest, but it is definitely the most
comprehensive and competitive.
Individuals or groups welcome. If you want to get some racing
experience before the campaign starts, join us for the Winter
Series, Spring Series or build your
confidence with our Race Development Course.
If you have never sailed before but would like to take part, we
recommend you first complete your RYA Competent Crew and our Introduction to Racing Course
before the programme starts in May.
We recommend everyone to undertake the RYA Sea Survival
training. We include the ISAF Offshore Safety course as part of the
We cater for a complete cross section of experience
levels and personal requirements. The important thing

a desire to do well and possess a great sense of humour.
