This weekend event will comprise races 5, 6 and 7 of the 2017 SORC Offshore Series, and will decide the overall winner! WIth 4 races completed, including the double scored Wolf Rock Race, and the best 5 races out of 8 to count, there is an excellent opportunity to discard your high points top get a decent overall result. Mathematically any one of 6 or 7 boats can win the series. In reality it looks like being a "to the wire" dog fight between Bellino and Fastrak, but with British Beagle more than able to pick up the scraps and spoil the fight, as could you - so get your entry in!
Where: Friday's race will start from the vicinity of Osborne Bay to the East of Cowes, and will finish off Fecamp. Expected start time 15:30
Sundays race will start off Fecamp and finish off Le Havre. Expected start time 10:00. This day race will hopefully get us into Le Havre in good time for dinner.
Monday's race will start off Le Havre and will finish in the Eastern Solent. Expected start time 07:00.
