Racing - HOEOCA Fastnet Campaign 2019 Update

HOEOCA has TWO entries in the 2019 Fastnet Race

The Gentlemen's entry is a F40, Dusty P, chartered with skipper from Britannia and the Professionals, otherwise known as Chris & Simon, have entered their SunFast 3200, All or Nothing (AON), in the 2 handed category! You can follow the progress of ANO on their blog nearer the time.

The intrepid crew of Dusty P start off with intensive training - First Aid course, Sea Survival and Offshore Safety Course and then a weekend on the water over the 5th-7th April.

This is followed by three qualifying races, so we can all begin to realise what we have let ourselves in for:

  • RORC Cervantes Race – Le Havre - 9am Saturday 4 May start
  • RORC De Guingand Race – Channel Race - 9am Saturday 8 June start
  • RORC Cowes - Dinard St Malo Race - 8.30am Fri 12 July start

The race itself - RORC Rolex Fastnet Race - starts from Cowes on Saturday 3 August and will return to Cowes by the following Friday morning.

Details of how to track the progress, amazing or otherwise, of both boats will be announced later.

Dusty P will be crewed by a skipper from Britannia, Martin Inglis (1st Mate), Gabriel Donaldson, Mark Parker, David Gilchrist, Will Russell, Peter Dunn, Ashleigh Hemming, Ian Stevenson & Allen Busby.
