Despite all the uncertainty with regard to COVID 19 the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC), organisers of the Rolex Fastnet Race are advising would-be competitors to pre-register for the race, which is planned to depart from Cowes on 8th August 2021.
Over the years dozens of Island residents have taken part in this race, known as one of the great Ocean Races of the World and the Royal Ocean Racing Club’s premier event.
With less than a month to go until entries open for next year’s Rolex Fastnet Race, the RORC Race Team are concerned there will be a repeat of the 2019 rush to enter when the race became oversubscribed in less than 5 minutes.
In order to secure a place when registration opens at 10:00 UTC on Tuesday 12th January, anyone wishing to enter is recommended to register in advance on RORC’s SailGate race entry management system.
A comprehensive guide for entrants is available on the Rolex Fastnet Race website to take competitors – whether race veterans or first-timers – through the registration process, and the RORC Race Team is on hand to offer advice and assistance.
