RORC L'LLE DE OUESSANT
Sunday 16th August
Anarchy Sailing invites you to join us for the this epic RORC mid summer
If you like lighthouses the this ones for you. You will see loads of them.
The race start is from the Squadron Line off Cowes on the Isle of Wight.
Crews are required to be at the yacht no later than 4 hours before the start.
You are welcome to arrive the night before at no additional cost. Accommodation onboard.
Full details of times & joining instructions will be forwarded to you on completion of
your booking or you can sneak a peak on the www.RORC.org website.
RORC can on rare occasions make amendments and we would spend our days changing the website. Rather be sailing.
The Race heads west out into the English Channel toward Wolf Rock off the Cornish coast. Then its across the Channel to Lille De Ouessant (Ushant) which we leave toper. Back around the Brest peninsular arriving at the finish in St Malo. We will spend a day ashore before blasting back through the Channel Islands to Cowes.
Race starts in.....

As we are all a bit rusty we have added in two training days. The whole event is therefore 7 days starting Thursday 14th August.
The price won't change but if you can only make 1 training day that's ok.
We will also only sail with a maximum of 8. RORC have advised 6 but they think 8 will be fine any August. Even if all restrictions are lifted we feel it would be good sense, not to go with 10.
If anyone takes ill before the event or is forced back into lockdown due to track n trace you will get a full refund. Show us a bit of proof. No! Coughing down the phone does not count. Never mind ill just take it on good faith.
No experience is required other than some offshore sailing. We will keep things simple with mainly Expedition food for main meals with some fresh stuff for breakfast. Stay safe....Go Sailing.
HOW TO BOOK
Well as you are reading this you must have a Computer, Tablet or a Smartphone or some magical device we are oblivious too.
So given your a tech wizard try one of these:
We genuinely discourage the use of Semaphore (waving flags around), morse code by lamp or telegraph, Smoke Signals, Chinese Whispers or "my mates ask me to ask you"
Or use our carefully grafted form below and we will get back to you.
By the nature of our business we are often on the water and don't man a full time office. Once about 5-10 miles offshore telephone signal is at best poor.
We therefore can't always provide an immediate response but we do promise to get back to you. We want your custom.
MORE UK BASED EVENTS
Anarchy Sailing is about fun first.
That said we love to race and we love to beat our rivals.
Each year we invest more into our yachts.
Sails, sail configuration to optimise performance against rating.
Smoother hull, new electronics and all kit replace when needed including halyards, sheets etc.
We will always present the yacht in the best possible condition so there are no excuses on the water.
Ultimately we are a TEAM and regardless of your previous experience you will become a key member of the TEAM.
Remember Life's a riot
THIS RACE CAN ALSO COUNT FOR YOUR QUALIFYING MILES SHOULD YOU WANT TO DO THE FASTNET IN 2021.
