The Cowes- Dinard – St Malo race is one of the oldest events in the RORC racing calendar and in St Malo also boasts one of the most tempting race destinations in the English Channel. The race offers a very interesting and varied course, as once competitors have headed west out of the Solent, that have the wonderful natural race markers of the Channel Islands to negotiate as they blast along towards the Breton Coast. Expect thrilling night sailing and strong competition, particularly in a Fastnet year, as this event is one of the qualifiers for the latter event and the 175 nautical mile long course can often be just as challenging. The race concludes in the stunning walled town of St Malo and this ensures that tired racers have a real treat in store for them after the rigours of such a competitive race.
