Rolex Fastnet Race 2015 – Approaching the Fastnet rock – 17 August

Day 2 of the 2015 Rolex Fastnet Race. The leading yachts have passed the halfway point of the 603-nm offshore race with the front-running multihulls rounding the race’s emblematic turning point – the Fastnet rock. The fastest monohulls are in close pursuit, while the majority of the fleet is engaged in a real tactical contest as it grinds its way slowly past the headlands of southern England. The 46th edition of the Rolex Fastnet Race is well underway and living up to its reputation as a true test of sailing prowess.

Fastnet Race on Rambler 88 | Yachting World

American George David's Rambler 88 took monohull line honours in the Royal Ocean Racing Club Rolex Fastnet Race this morning, finishing in 1d 19h, just over an hour outside the course record.

It's the third consecutive time that Rambler 88 has taken line honours, but she's yet to win the race overall, and in this clip George David reflects on his disappointment, but he also described rounding the Fastnet Rock in almost identical conditions, at a similar time of day, to 2011 when his Rambler 100's keel fell off and the yacht capsized.

An emotional moment for him, remembering his rescue, that of his wife and 19 other crew, and reconnecting this weekend once again with the rescue services that came to their aid.
Watch this - a reminder that this hard-fought race makes deep memories and bonds, even among crews that do big events worldwide all the time.

Rolex Fastnet Race 2013 - the last start the massive 100ft monohulls in IRC Z and CK

Mike Slades Icap Leopard, tussling for line honours with the two mini maxis Bella Mente from the USA and Niklas Zennstrom's RAN, the two times Fastnet Trophy winner. Or will it be Ian Walker's Volvo 70 Abu Dhabi, the course record holder from 2011?

Rolex Fastnet Race 2015 – Highlights

The Rolex Fastnet Race, organized by the Royal Ocean Racing Club, celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2015, with the 46th edition of this biennial 603-nautical mile offshore classic proving both intriguing and dramatic. A record fleet of 356 yachts from 25 countries competed, a clear demonstration of the event’s enduring appeal. Light conditions characterised the early part of the race, impacting the start from Cowes and the larger yachts chasing record times. Multihull line honours was claimed by the 131-ft Swiss trimaran Spindrift 2 while the 100-ft Maxi Comanche from the United States was the fastest monohull finisher prevailing ahead of fellow American yacht Rambler by a mere 4 minutes. In the latter part of the race the fleet’s smaller, predominantly Corinthian-crewed yachts, benefitted from an upturn in breeze rounding the emblematic Fastnet rock in more classic conditions. Claiming overall victory on IRC handicap was the 35-ft French yacht Courrier du Leon, whose magnificent exploits on the water were rewarded with the Fastnet Challenge Trophy and a Rolex timepiece at the final prizegiving held in Plymouth.

Rolex Fastnet Race 2019 – 4 August – Multihull Race Record Broken

Co-skippered by round the world race winners, Charles Caudrelier and Franck Cammas, Maxi Edmond de Rothschild secured Multihull Line Honours in the 2019 Rolex Fastnet Race on Sunday afternoon. Finishing the 605nm course in 1 day 4 hours 2 minutes, the 30.5-metre (100-foot) French Ultime trimaran eclipsed the previous race record by some four hours. Out on the course, monohull Line Honours continues to be contested by three Maxis – the the 30.5-metre (100-foot) Scallwag, the Volvo 70 Wizard and the 27 m (88 ft) Rambler. Organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club and partnered by Rolex since 2001, the race attracts a broad range of entries passionate about taking on the legendary test. Away from the leaders, the majority of the 388 yacht fleet are still sailing towards the race’s emblematic landmark, the Fastnet Rock on the southern tip of Ireland.

Rolex Fastnet Race 2017 – Film – The Spirit of Yachting

This episode of the Rolex Spirit of Yachting film series features the action and highlights of the 2017 Rolex Fastnet Race. On 6 August, a record fleet of 362 yachts gathered off Cowes, the Isle of Wight in the United Kingdom for the world’s largest offshore race. Of the 2,700 sailors taking part in the 603-nautical-mile offshore adventure, overall victory went to French yachtsman Didier Gaudoux. It was a dream made reality for the seasoned yachtsman who had set his sights on a Rolex Fastnet trophy and the accompanying Rolex timepiece as far back as the late 1970s. The 47th edition affirmed its status as one of the most demanding offshore races, a veritable benchmark on the international yachting calendar for almost a century.

Rolex Fastnet Race 2017 – Highlights

On 6 August, a record fleet of 362 yachts gathered off Cowes for the world’s largest ocean race. French yachtsman Didier Gaudoux was among the 2,700 sailors who took part in the 603-nautical-mile offshore adventure over the following days. He had been dreaming of winning the Rolex Fastnet Race since the late 1970s, when he first discovered his passion for offshore racing. It inspired him to ask design studio Joubert & Nivelt to build a yacht to “win the Rolex Fastnet Race”. That ambition became reality when Gaudoux’s Lann Ael 2, crewed with family and friends, was confirmed as the overall winner of the 47th Rolex Fastnet Race. His reward came in the form of the Fastnet Challenge Cup and a Rolex timepiece awarded during the final prize-giving.

The Fastnet Yacht Race Tragedy of 1979

The story of the Force 10 gale which decimated the 1979 Fastnet race, the last of the Admiral's Cup events in that year. A massive search and rescue operation was begun as half of the 300 yachts competing went missing in a 20,000 area square of the Irish Sea. The death toll was 15, and the ramifications are still felt today with the increased safety requirements introduced in the aftermath
