Offshore RORC Racing

Whether you are a group of friends or colleagues, if you are looking for a great challenge an offshore weekend yacht race is perfect. 

Throughout the year from May - September, the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) arrange a number of competitive, weekend offshore adventures.  Each race goes to a different destination, sometimes racing around marks in the Channel, others finishing in France or the Channel Islands offering a chance to combine racing with a return delivery cruise.

No sailing experience is required as Britannia will provide professional skipper and first mate on board, or for experienced teams contact us for bareboat charter options.
