A morning start to this race sees the fleet head west out of the Solent as directly as they can to the Eddystone Lighthouse rounding to Port before heading back to the Solent and the Finish. A longer race than the usual RORC weekend course and should show how a good watch system works. An additional 20% points bonus is up for grabs so this race will be a key to our overall championship place
Because of the morning start you will need to be in Cowes at sometime to suit you Friday evening. The initial racing will be done during daylight hours, so is an ideal race for those who really want to get a feel of what the boat can achieve but without the disadvantage of darkness.
Eddystone Lighthouse (P) North Head Finish – Approximately 230 miles.
