The Plymouth Lonely Rock Race 2021

The Royal Western Yacht Club of England in Plymouth is excited to announce the RWYC ‘Plymouth Lonely Rock Race 2021’.

Overview

July 4th 2021 will see the introduction of a brand new offshore race from the Royal Western Yacht Club which will run in opposite years to the Original Lonely Rock Race. The ‘Plymouth Lonely Rock Race’ will start in Plymouth Sound, exit via the Western Entrance of Plymouth Sound, round the Fastnet Rock to port, pass the Isles of Scilly to port and then finish between the Breakwater Lighthouse and the navigation buoy, ‘Queens Ground’ in Plymouth Sound.

The challenges of this race are much the same as the Original Lonely Rock Race. Set at around 500 miles long, this is a race with 4 challenging segments. Starting from Plymouth, the race will not have to deal with the tidal gates at Hurst Castle, Portland and Start Point giving its competitors a chance to experience a shorter race around the Fastnet rock without potential for huge tidal gains and losses and without the logistical challenges of start and finish being in 2 different cities.

Entries will be open to MOCRA, IMOCA, Class40, Mini Transat, IRC, single-handed, 2-handed and 1/2crew*.
Entry numbers are likely to be limited, so please send your intent to enter to lrr@rwyc.org

Further information and Notice of Race to follow shortly.

*crews cannot exceed 50% of their certified crew number.
