The Rolex Fastnet Race will be returning to its historic home in August, and we are looking forward to supporting the sailors and enjoying the activities over the 2 day period. The following information has been provided by Visit Plymouth

The historic Rolex Fastnet Race will once again finish in Plymouth this summer. Yachts come from all over the world to compete in the race which starts on Saturday 3 August 2019 in Cowes on the Isle of Wight. The first yachts are expected to arrive in Plymouth in the early hours of Monday 5 August.

The Plymouth race village will be located at Yacht Haven at Mount Batten and will be open to the public from Tuesday 6 to Thursday 8 August, with live music, family friendly activities and opportunities for local people to try their hand at on-water activities like sailing, kayaking and Stand Up Paddleboarding.

The Rolex Fastnet will be followed by the Britain’s Ocean City Blues n Jazz Festival from Friday 9 to Sunday 11 August, rounding off a week of celebration. More details about the programme and timings will be released closer to the time.
