Round Britain and Ireland Race

Round Britain and Ireland Race 2014

One Lovesail member is looking for crew to join him for Round Britain and Ireland Race, here is his crewing post.  If you would like more details in this great opportunity then contact ‘Howard’ through the Lovesail site to express your interest.

If you’re interested in a big sailing adventure in 2014 Round Britain and Ireland Race could be for you. This non-stop race takes place once every four years and will take 12-14 days to complete. Race start Sunday 10th August 2014.  Are you up for the challenge?

The 1,802nm course will take competitors around some of the busiest and most tactically challenging sailing waters in the world. It attracts a diverse range of yachts and crew, most of which are enticed by the challenge it offers as well as the diversity and beauty of the route around Britain and Ireland with spectacular scenery and wildlife.  Most sailors agree that this race is one of the toughest tests as it is nearly as long as an Atlantic crossing, but the changes of direction at headlands will mean constant breaks in the watch system for sail changes and sail trim.  I would like to put together a comprehensive package which includes 3 qualifying offshore races and a training weekend, onboard Songlines 42foot racer/cruiser.
The crew must compete in a minimum of 500 nm offshore prior to Round Britain and Ireland Race. This is not a race for beginners.
