What is so special about the Fastnet Race?
Training and racing with a crew over three months really creates bonds and forges a super team. The Fastnet is often an aspirational race for many people who want to tick the box, but we ensure that it’s also a competitive experience. The Fastnet is incredibly challenging both tactically and physically and the Great British weather can often turn up some surprises; in short you never know what you’re gonna get! As an added bonus for 2021 and 2023 the race will, for the first time in its history, finish at Cherbourg in France! We can’t wait to sample the French cheese and wine!
The Fastnet is on the bucket list for all serious ocean racers. With Global Yacht Racing we didn’t just complete the race but were a serious contender with great results. Our skipper brought sailors of all different skill levels together to make a team on a well prepared yacht.
