Whitehall, London, November 17, 2018 – The 2018 Royal Ocean Racing Club Annual Dinner and Prize Giving was held at the Royal Horseguards Hotel, with over 200 guests attending the spectacular black tie event and where prize winners, competitors, crews, RORC members and guests celebrated the year’s achievements with the Royal Ocean Racing Club .

After a champagne reception, the dinner and prize giving was held in the theatre-style Gladstone Library. The Grade I listed hotel overlooking the Thames has strong links to the British Military and Gladstone has a fortuitous link to the 2018 Yacht of the Year. Every prize winner was roundly applauded as they took centre stage at the glamorous event. There was a huge ovation for the overall winner of the 2018 RORC Season’s Points Championship, British Soldier, and for the RORC Yacht of the Year, Ichi Ban.

Many thanks to the Royal Ocean Racing Club for hosting a fabulous season of offshore racing and the Royal Horseguards Hotel for hosting a wonderful evening, we look forward too defending our title in 2019!

WHY SHOULD I DO AN RYA DAY SKIPPER COURSE?

Imagine this…you’re looking for a holiday or some time away from home a little different from the norm. Your friend has started sailing and has told you how enjoyable it is, having the freedom to explore areas of the world that you normally wouldn’t be able to, the refreshing feeling of skimming across the open water with the wind blowing through your hair. Sounds great eh? But you don’t have much experience on the water and you’re not sure you’d have the confidence to sail a 38ft yacht yourself.

ITS JUST ONE MONTH TO GO UNTIL THE ROLEX FASTNET RACE!!

This year Sailing Logic will have 7 teams racing again on our fleet of Beneteau First 40’s. We are very happy to have lots of new faces amongst some of the Sailing Logic old school who are back for another go at this amazing race. The teams are all getting into their campaigns now with all completed their training weekends and also at least one of the offshore qualifying races.
