If you are looking for a weekend of adventure and challenge – the RORC offshore races are perfect for you!
Each race is organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club, and follows a different course, with its own set of challenges, so every race is a new adventure. With our well-maintained racing yachts and top racing skippers, Sailing Logic have secured some fantastic results in the RORC offshore races over the past few years – and if you’re looking to actively contribute to a competitive team, to help continue this winning trend – then we’d love you to hear from you.
Experience all the adventure of offshore RORC racing in the following weekend events.
The RORC Myth of Malham race is also referred to as the Eddystone Race as the course takes you West around the Eddystone lighthouse off Plymouth and back. One of the longer weekend RORC races at 230nM, this is a non-stop thrill-ride. Typically, it is upwind to the lighthouse and a downhill spinnaker run back.
The race starts on Thursday afternoon so we meet Thursday morning (11am) for a crew get-together and yacht prep before the race start. The race usually takes 2 days, so you can expect to return to Hamble on the Saturday.
Dates: 4th – 6th May 2024
This year’s Morgan Cup race will finish in the beautiful harbour of Dartmouth and, so as not to reproduce another ‘Myth of Malham’ race course, some virtual waypoints will likely be used to provide some variety and different tactical challenges. One of the jewels in the crown among West Country harbours, Dartmouth, plus Kingswear opposite, and the always welcoming Royal Dart Yacht Club make this a popular sailing destination.
Dates: 7th – 9th June 2024
The St Malo Race is a 160nm race from Cowes, across the English Channel, past the Channel Islands and over to St Malo. It is tactically challenging with multiple tidal gates and busy shipping lanes to deal with. Time permitting, we’ll stop in St Malo or the Channel Islands after the race for a meal and then enjoy a cruise home to Hamble.
We’ll meet at 7pm on the Thursday evening, the start is Friday morning. We usually finish around Saturday lunchtime and head home on Sunday, arriving back early on Monday morning.
Dates: 5th – 7th July 2024
The final RORC race, the Cherbourg Race is usually a great social opportunity as well as a closely fought race! The race starts on Friday evening and will head straight to Cherbourg, where you and your crew will enjoy all the end-of-season celebrations ashore before cruising back overnight to arrive back in Hamble Sunday late morning/early afternoon.
Dates: 6th – 8th September 2024
