About the Race

Solo Offshore Racing Club (www.offshoresolo.com) are proud to present the inaugural SORC Round the Rock Race.

This Cat 2 (ISAF)  race is designed by solo sailors for solo sailors. For Corinthian sailors who want to test their skills and endurance in a substantial offshore race. A race that only requires a week's leave  to complete but still offers the excitement and challenge of nights at sea combined with the unpredictable nature of North Atlantic weather.

Yellow Brick Tracking will be utilised to ensure detailed tracking of the race.

Open to any IRC rated boat or Class boats racing under their class rules. Skippers will need to have substantial short handed offshore experience.

The entry fee will be kept to a minimum to only to cover the race costs.

A pre-race social event is planned with supporters able to purchase tickets and join in.

At the end of the race a party is planned where we want all competitors to attend, both fast and slow, to join and share their experiences and camaraderie. Again supporters will be able to purchase tickets.
