The Royal Western Yacht Club is happy to inform all that the early entry rate will continue up to June 1st for the Plymouth Lonely Rock Race 2021.

Following numerous requests for this race to be formed, the PLR will start and finish in Plymouth, rounding the Fastnet Rock to port and leaving the Isles of Scilly to port on the return. A short 200-mile qualifier is required to enter, as per the NoR available on the website. The Wolf Rock Race will be accepted as a qualifier to the PLR2021 - rwyc.org/wolf-rock-race

The 508-mile course, 100 miles shorter than the original Fastnet Racecourse will also be the highest-ranking points race for the new, Southwest offshore Group Series (SOGS). Classes will be offered for IRC & MOCRA. Cruiser and one design classes can be accepted. Options on crew numbers are solo, double handed, half IRC crew number as well as full crew.

A strong entry is expected for the race, particularly as the start and finish is from the same UK port. COVID management will be much easier and for the UK entrants the city has the Penzance to London Paddington railway line for those needing to get home quickly.

Please go to rwyc.org/plymouth-lonely-rock-race and scroll down for Notice 0f Race and entry forms.

The entry will be limited to the first 70 boats.
