Easter Regatta

RORC Easter Challenge

RORC Easter Challenge

Royal Ocean Racing Club - Easter Challenge Regatta

Friday 3rd - Sunday 5th April

The Easter Regatta sponsored by Red Funnel Ferries and organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club. Racing on tight Solent Courses designed to emphasise crew work and boat handling.

A series of 7 races spread over 3 days. The racing starts Good Friday and so sets the format for the following regatta.

This regatta kicks starts the RORC season both on and off the water. Varied weather is almost certainly guaranteed. Free coaching is available on and off the water from the RYA who also at the end of each days racing hold a forum of the good and bad points of boat handling and race tactics that they have seen during the racing day. Competition as always with inshore regattas is fierce. An ever-growing regatta should prove to be very exciting indeed.

After a day out on the water, a full social programme rolls into action with Easter Eggs given at the prize-giving ceremonies each evening at the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club, the Island Sailing Club and the Royal London Yacht Club.
