Next week:

The Royal Ocean Racing Club returns to racing on August 1st with Race the Wight. As normal life begins to unfold once again, we'll be taking a break from the RORC Time Over Distance Series. Next week - Friday 17th July at 1700 BST you can watch some of the best bits and hear a few of the great stories we've been exploring these past 15 weeks.

Louay Habib has been interviewing sailors and masters of their art in the world of yachting, exploring epic races, top pro-techniques, and much, much more. Interactive discussions with those at the top of their field, together with videos, pictures and a chance to listen to their epic stories. Time Over Distance was designed to inform and entertain any serious offshore sailor. We hope that the RORC Time Over Distance library might become a highly regarded resource for years to come.
