The Rolex Fastnet Race Village at Plymouth Yacht Haven

Photos and report from Rolex Fastnet Race Village

11 August 2017

The 2017 Rolex Fastnet Race Village at Plymouth Yacht Haven has welcomed over 300 finishing boats, over 2,500 crew and a further 5,000 public visitors coming to see the impressive fleet.

With boats on the pontoons ranging from the multihull line honours winner MOD 70 Concise 10, racing monohulls Ramble 88 and 115ft Nikita, to the smallest boats in the fleet at just 30ft, the sight has been spectacular. And, with the Volvo Ocean Racing fleet berthing at Plymouth Yacht Haven as well, the pontoons were graced by the world's finest sailors including British yachtswoman Dee Caffari and New Zealand's America's Cup winning skipper Pete Burling.

From all the team at Plymouth Yacht Haven, a big thank you to the marina berth holders for their support and understanding throughout the event. Further thanks to the Royal Ocean Racing Club, all the Plymouth Yacht Haven businesses and the Haven Team who have been on the pontoons 24 hours a day to welcome the finishing boats ashore.
