RORC RACING

The RORC Cervantes Trophy

The first UK offshore RORC race of the season, the RORC Cervantes Trophy Race will start on Friday evening TBC. You will race from Cowes to Le Havre in France with an expected race mileage of 110-160NM plus the return cruise. 

As the race starts on Friday evening TBC, we suggest a Friday Lunchtime meet to allow time for a crew get-together, yacht prep and dinner. The race heads to France, allowing for some time ashore before sailing back to Hamble to arrive on Sunday PM.

RORC Myth of Malham (Eddystone) Race

The RORC Myth of Malham race is also referred to as the Eddystone Race as the course takes you West around the Eddystone lighthouse off Pymouth and back. One of the longer weekend RORC races at 230nM, this is a non-stop thrill-ride. Typically, it is upwind to the lighthouse and a downhill spinnaker run back.

The race starts on Saturday morning so we meet Friday evening (6-7pm) for a crew get-together, yacht prep and dinner before the race start the next day. The race usually takes 2 days, so you can expect to return to Hamble on the Monday.

TESTIMONIALS

I started racing with Sailing Logic two years ago and haven't looked back; The quality of training, skippers and boats make it the best and most professional school I've ever raced with. Head and shoulders above the rest!

Thank-you Sailing Logic for making this one of the best years I have had. The sailing was amazing but the new friends and the feel of being part of one big happy family is priceless.

Innis Wilkinson

Our skipper's example of outstanding seamanship and his nurturing of the team meant we not only had a fabulously enjoyable year but importantly, we could really make the yacht go fast! This is not just sailing, this is Sailing Logic.
