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 first UK offshore RORC race of the season, the RORC Cervantes Trophy Race will start on Saturday morning. You will race from Cowes to Le Havre in France with an expected race mileage of 95-140NM plus the return cruise.
As the race starts on Saturday morning, we suggest a Friday evening meet (6-7pm) to allow time for a crew get-together, yacht prep and dinner. The race heads to France, allowing for some time ashore before sailing back to Hamble to arrive on Monday morning.
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 Pymouth 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 Saturday morning so we meet Friday evening (6-7pm) for a crew get-together, yacht prep and dinner before the race start the next day. The race usually takes two days, so you can expect to return to Hamble on the Monday.
The Morgan Cup will race to the French fishing town of Dieppe, famous for it’s scallops and 15th-century castles. The race will start Friday evening so we meet Friday afternoon in Hamble. You can expect to enjoy Saturday dinner ashore, followed by an overnight sail back to arrive late afternoon/early evening on Sunday.
One of the most popular RORC races, you can enjoy not just a great race to St Malo, France but also enjoy a lovely evening ashore in a beautiful old French town, followed by a lovely delivery sail back usually via the Alderney races.
Starting on Friday morning you will head out across the Channel, racing through the night as you pass the Casquets Lighthouse arriving in to St Malo Saturday afternoon/evening. The race nearly always involves some challenging wind conditions around the Channel Islands! After a celebratory dinner ashore, you will depart on Sunday morning for the delivery sail back to Hamble, arriving late Sunday / early Monday morning.
Approx 175nM + cruise back.
The RORC DeGuingand Bowl is normally between 110 and 160nms. Starting in Cowes, the 24-36hr long course takes yachts around buoy’s before crossing the finish line in the Solent. This is a great race for those who are either new to offshore racing, or don’t have the time to do the longer distance races.
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.
Approx 75nM + cruise back.
For evening meets we encourage you to arrive between 6-7pm to join the rest of the crew for an informal dinner. The boat will be available from 5pm if you’d like to get involved in some of the boat prep and we request you arrive no later than 8.30pm in order to allow time for a safety brief and organise sleeping arrangements.
