Rolex Fastnet August 3rd–8th 2019

Plymouth Yacht Haven is thrilled to welcome back the competitors and supporting teams for the finish line of the 2019 Rolex Fastnet Race!

The marina will be buzzing with activity and alive with the colours of these beautiful boats as they compete in this incredibly popular biennial race. The Bridge is delighted to be able to host many of the teams, eager for food after several hard days (and nights) sailing and we love the event more and more each time it is held.

A bit about the race itself….

As ever the course will take the giant fleet west down the English Channel, either side of the prohibited ‘traffic separation scheme’ zone between Land’s End and the Scilly Isles, across the Celtic Sea to the Fastnet Rock, four miles off southwest Ireland, back south leaving Bishop Rock and the Scilly Isles to port and then, on past the Lizard, to the finish off Plymouth – in total 605 nautical miles.
