With only six months to go, our preparations are well under way to set up and manage the Rolex Fastnet Race 2015 Race Village and Crew Bars in Plymouth.
The Rolex Fastnet Race sees more than 300 boats race 600 nautical miles from the UK’s sailing mecca of Cowes, around the Fastnet Rock, with a finish in Plymouth Sound. Celebrating its 90th anniversary, this historic and prestigious event expects an illustrious welcome for all of the crews taking part and we are delighted to be a part of it.
With thousands of sailors expected to visit Plymouth at the end of the race, our expert events team will provide a convenient temporary clubhouse, 24 hour crew bars, catering outlets, showering and toilet facilities and hospitality lounges to help make sure crews have everything they need to hand after such a demanding race at sea.
The Royal Ocean Racing Club first commissioned Activate Switch to look after the Rolex Fastnet Race, shoreside programme, in 2011. Since then the event has had to grow, to accommodate the substantial increase in boats taking part and this year, the event ‘sold out’ within 20 minutes of the online system opening! With the race village now firmly established at Plymouth Yacht Haven and on the Mount Batten Peninsular, we are looking forward to welcoming the competitors and visitors to enjoy the ambience and celebration of this incredible yacht race.
