RORC Île d'Ouessant Race is a 400 mile round trip from Cowes to Wolf Rock to Ouessant and then back to the beautiful port of St Malo. This race is Great for client considering Fastnet 2017 as its perfect starter to offshore racing and later in the year and less weekends than Round Ireland. 

There is meal in the RORC Club House on the Saturday Evening before the race to meet your fellow competitors and share stories from previous events

The inaugural edition of the Royal Ocean Racing Club's Île d'Ouessant Race produced a fascinating strategic battle for the new four hundred nautical mile ocean race.

In an ever-changing wind and tide scenario, the outstanding performers needed to make bespoke tactical decisions to achieve success. Speed is always king in offshore racing, but the fastest time is not always achieved by adopting the shortest route.

Motion Charters Yachts competed in the double handed series with 13 other yachts. The class was dominated by two French JPK 10.10s; 2013 Rolex Fastnet victors Pascal and Alexis Loison's Night and Day, and the leading yacht in this year's Two-Handed RORC Season's Points Championship, Raging Bee skippered by Louis-Marie Dussere. Night and Day won the duel by just over an hour on corrected time. Top British boat was Richard Palmer's JPK 10.10 Janganda, which came third.
