The 2nd edition of the Plymouth Fastnet 500 takes place on Sunday 13 August. Starting from and finishing at Plymouth Sound, this is a great option to see the Fastnet rock in all its splendour without the logistical headaches before or after the race.
Early entry discount is available right up to 1 July and for the first 20 boats there is an additional incentive of a further 5 percent reduction.
There are also offers available to all to join the RWYC and take advantage of the members discounts whilst enjoying reciprocal membership to many of the top sailing clubs around the world.
Rear Commodore Oceanic, Adrian Gray said, “Following the inaugural race in 2021, we look forward to building the ‘500 as it is sure to be on many a yachtsman’s ‘to do’ list alongside other similar races.
“We will also be running the race in 2024 to bridge a gap to the ‘Original Lonely Rock Centenary Race’ which will see the original course being used for the first time since that first race in 1925.”
