Less than two weeks to go until the start of the Cervantes Trophy race. Starting from Cowes at 1000hrs straight across to Le Havre, the 120mile race is the first training race for the Fastnet crew. The campaign slowly builds from this 120mile race followed two weeks later by the Myth of Malham Race essentially doubling the course miles. This is a great buildup to the eventual dash across the Celtic Sea to the Fastnet rock. The boat preparation has been good with the one notable exception of the new sails. They’re not ready!
Trying to look on the bright side, it’s probably not a bad thing as we can focus on all the other requirements for offshore racing without the distraction of learning how to trim new sails. That can come later!
We still have a space available for this years Fastnet so stop thinking about it and start your adventure. Great value package, click here for more details.
