Time For the Fastnet!

The RORC Fastnet 2017 starts tomorrow morning – I’ll be racing on a First 40 called Winston Logic with a number of my crew mates fomr Derry~Londonderry~Doire (Clipper Round the World 15-16).

With nearly 400 boats entered, it will be one of the biggest offshore races in history, and we will be racing alongside the Volvo Ocean Race Fleet. To be fair, I think we will glimpse them at the start of the race, and then our next sighting will be at the race finish in Plymouth πŸ˜‰

Yellowbrick racing will be tracking the race; you can use the site on the RORC website (If you are using an iPhone or an iPad, you’ll need to download the free Yellowbrick app and add the Rolex Fastnet Race 2017).

A Year On… And a New DLD Crew

It’s incredible that it is exactly a year this weekend that the 13-14 Derry~Londonderry~Doire crew arrived into Derry-Londonderry after winning the race across the North Atlantic. This weekend, the new Derry~Londonderry~Doire crew for the 15-16 race are once more making the journey for a weekend of team building activities – I’m sure a few of the red jackets will be spotted on the streets over the next few days!
