Fastnet Challenge 2014
Portsmouth – Fastnet Rock – Portsmouth
Take on the Challenge of sailing from Portsmouth, around the Fastnet Rock off the South -West tip of Ireland and back again on one of our 72ft Challenger Yachts!
The voyage will begin in Portsmouth. You will then head west along the south coast. Depending on progress you may stop along the coast before heading out past the Scilly Isles into the Irish Sea. The plan is to stop in Kinsale either before or after rounding the ‘Rock’ to sample some Irish hospitality at its best. The challenge then finishes with a sprint back to Portsmouth.

When rounding the rock it was really foggy but then the fog kindly lifted and there it was, the infamous Fastnet Rock! It was an immense feeling and we were all buzzing, the wind then picked up and we were off racing …..The camaraderie amongst the crew was superb. Toni
