Offshore 2018 Programme

RC (Offshore) - 03 Jan 18 Offshore

Rear Commodore Offshore has published the provisional programme for the 2018 racing season


After a rather frustrating 2017 season plans are in place to campaign Jolly Jack Tar for a full season of racing in 2018. With no Fastnet race in 2018 the Squad will be competing in a wide range of regattas both inshore and offshore. The teams goals for 2018 are:

1 - Regain the Services Offshore Regatta title
2 - A top 3 finish at the Beaufort Cup in Ireland
3 - A top 3 finish in the J/109 National Championships

The Beaufort Cup is a relatively new invitational regatta hosted by the Irish Defence forces for international Armed Forces and Emergency Services teams. It is run in parallel with Cork week but also includes an offshore race to the Fastnet Rock. More details are at the link.

The provisional programme is attached - if you would like to get involved please contact one of the Committee. Get in touch by emailing rcoffshore@rnsa.org.uk or PM'ing one of us on the Royal Navy Offshore Sailing Facebook Page.

Here's to a successful 2018 season for the RN Offshore Squad...
