VIDEO: Prepare to register for the 2021 Rolex Fastnet Race

2021 Rolex Fastnet Race

With less than one month to go until entry opens for the 48th edition of the Rolex Fastnet Race, the RORC Race Team are concerned there will be a repeat of the 2019 rush to enter when the race became oversubscribed in less than 5 minutes.

In order to secure a place when registration opens at 1000 UTC on Tuesday 12 January, it is recommended that you register your boat in advance on RORC’s SailGate race entry management system.

A comprehensive Guide for Entrants is available on the Rolex Fastnet Race website to take competitors - whether race veterans or first timers - through the registration process, and the RORC Race Team are on hand to offer advice and assistance.
