The Royal Western Yacht Club is pleased to announce the new start date of 9th May 2021 for the MailASail OSTAR and TWOSTAR race. The next edition is set to be the 16th OSTAR and 7th Edition of the TWOSTAR race.
With 8 months to go, the Royal Western Yacht Club would like to formally invite all past competitors and as many new adventurers to enter and join us as we formally celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first race.
This is the ‘original’, the race which has made many of its competitors household names, the springboard to oceanic status. Francis Chichester, Eric Tabarly, Philippe Poupon, Loick Peyron, Francis Joyon, Michel Desjoyeaux, Ellen MacArthur and Mike Golding all list among the winners. Others who have taken part include Bruno Peyron, Mark Gatehouse, Frank Cammas, Mike Sanderson, Nick Moloney, Conrad Humphreys, Hannah White, Samantha Davies and Pip Hildesley (now Pip Hare) to name a few.
Finishing in the stunning setting of Newport, Rhode Island; the course remains as it was on its second edition, the first of which finished off the Ambrose Light, New York.
