About SORC:

The principal objective of the Club is the promotion and organisation of Single Handed Yacht Racing. The Club can trace its roots back to the 2000 OSTAR where a small number of skippers formed a group called ‘Petit Bateau’. As the Club expanded in 2004 a limited company was formed and in 2009 the name was changed to SORC.

Today, the majority of our highly competitive races start and finish in the Solent Area but we do frequently go further afield to France, Ireland and other destinations.  Our race Programme in 2016 comprises 15 races over a total distance of 1328 miles and in 2015 our season featured forty solo skippers.  A number of our members have also completed in Oceanic races including the OSTAR, Transquadra, Mini-Transat, Round Britain and Ireland, AZAB, Global Ocean Race and others.
