Offshore Series races 5 & 6 from the Solent across to Cherbourg and back

The conclusion of the 2019 SORC Offshore Series will see us race overnight on Friday 30th August and return during the day on Sunday 1st September after a dinner in Cherbourg on the Saturday evening.

Always a popular venue, and viable in a weekend, Cherbourg will determine the seasons Offshore Champion!

Race 5 - Cowes to Cherbourg starts on the JOG Lisburne line and goes to Cherbourg via the Western Solent.

Race 6 - Cherbourg to Eastern Solent, will leave Cherbourg early Sunday morning to race back to the Solent via Bembridge.

A rally berthing discount is being arranged In Port Chantereyne, the main marina in Cherbourg, for the Saturday night and a fleet dinner venue will be designated. Prior to dinner we will have a pontoon prize giving for the outward leg.

Please note that the Virtual Mark at the Needles, as used in RIOW, is being utilised. Additionally we are now designating the maximum distance from the finish bouy, when applicable, as being 0.05nm rather than 100m. So, the finish line is marginally shorter from now on, but atleast most plotters can read your distance in nautucal miles, when reading out in meters is not so commonly available.
