Welcome to SOLO Offshore Racing Club

We are a virtual yacht club in that we have no premises but what do have is an enthusiastic group of offshore & inshore yacht racers who love "going solo" on the water, and also enjoy a lively gathering afterwards. We sail a range of "Class" boats and IRC cruiser/racers. Anybody is welcome to join our events so long as your boat meets the safety criteria. Budding Vendee aspirants, Figarists, or just wanting to enjoy the personal challenge with like minded sailors, all are welcome!
