OSTAR 2017 – Update

We now have over 20 entries for this year’s OSTAR/TWOSTAR which starts at midday on Monday 29th May this year.

The Royal Western Yacht Club’s Original Singlehanded Transatlantic Race, established as the OSTAR in 1960, has attracted strong international interest. The event which is the ultimate 3000 mile Corinthian challenge across the North Atlantic has already received confirmed entries from the UK, Italy, Ireland, France, Poland, Germany, Holland and Bulgaria.

Newport R.I, of Americas Cup fame and historic host finish port, has once again confirmed sponsorship of the event in the USA. They look forward to welcoming the Line Honours winner expected around 17 days at sea.

Entries for both the OSTAR and TWOSTAR close on 31st March 2017.
