Enjoy the adventure of a lifetime…

Over the next couple of months, the Committee will be pulling together a campaign plan for Fastnet 2025. This is the first invitation to all members interested in taking part.

As in previous years, the final crew line-up will comprise a sufficient mix of crew from proven experience to first-timers and above all, a spirit of sailing camaraderie to achieve a life memory of fun, adrenalin surge and achievement to the best of our abilities.

For our 2025 campaign, Lutine will be skippered by our professional skipper James Close. Whilst most of the training will commence at the start of the 2025 season, we also plan to use the opportunity to race in the RORC Cowes/Cherbourg race in September this year as a precursor to the crew consolidation and qualification for the 2025 race itself.

Full details of the campaign commitments and cost (expected to be in the region of £3,000 for a full campaign, payable in three instalments) will follow in due course but at this stage, the Committee would like to hear from any member who may be interested in forming part of the 2025 Fastnet crew.

To this end, please email neil.armstrong@charlestaylor.com now, outlining the reasons for your interest, what you’d like to personally like to get out of the experience, and a brief summary of your sailing experience (whether offshore or not). You should do this even if you believe you have already expressed an interest in taking part as this constitutes an official starting point for ALL crew.
