Cork Week is one of the best regattas in Europe getting hundreds of entries, and is one we've not attended for a few years now. There will be great day time sailing with a night life to match, and the possibility of a through the night race around fastnet rock and back,
For us to take part we have to bring our boats over, so there is a perfect opportunity for those looking to put some miles in their logbook, or looking to get a feel for what a Fastnet race is like, without the pressure.
We'll be breaking the trip down into 3 bookable sections, and anyone looking to do Cork week, has to also take part in at least one of the delivery legs. The booking system for this race is not first come first served, as we need to match the crews availability to deliver the boats with the needs. That said, if you can do the delivery out, and back, you've got a place :-)
Taking the boats out, we'll leave from the Solent, so please book onto that leg here. Weather permitting. This my incorporate an evening in a coastal town on the way out, weather dependent.
Then there is Cork Week itself - which is this bookable
For the return journey there are multiple options:
One boat will sail straight back to the Solent, hopefully with spinnaker up the whole way - here is the bookable
Another will sail from Cork to Penzance, and then make their way home by land. This is a short leg, of 1 days sailing and will have lots of opportunity for dolphin watching - here is the bookable for that
We're going to run a 1 week mile builder with instruction from Penzance. Tom, our chief instructor is going to take over the boat at Penzance, and put in an intensive coaching week as you bring the boat back to the solent. The bookable for that is here
All together it's a great way to experience some of the best racing, coastal sailing, and professional instruction all rolled into one trip.
