MailASail OSTAR and Twostar

The 60th Anniversary OSTAR race which is sponsored by MailASail is drawing ever closer. Firm entries totalling 13 have already been received from France, Bulgaria, Poland, GBR, Czech Republic and Italy. With at least the same number yet to commit it is perhaps a timely reminder that the early entry discount is coming to an end on Jan 1st 2022. The RWYC anticipate the best entry for many years in what will be an historic edition of the race.

As we approach double figures, the Twostar continues to grow in popularity and will also start on the 15th May 2022.

2 Handed RB&I - now with a twist

22 entries, 6 of which are multihulls, have already been received for this classic offshore race around Britain. Starting on 29th May 2022, the new course will have stop overs in Galway, Lerwick and Blyth, making this the most accessible race to date. By popular demand, a new twist to the race will see a fully crewed class offered which will run alongside the double handed race, again with 3 stop overs and the opportunity to change half the crew at one of the designated stop overs. This format offers teams the opportunity to compete in a race around Britain and Ireland whilst not requiring the huge time commitment otherwise seen in such a race.

Again, the deadline for early entry discount ends this month and with a limited entry this is sure to fill before then.

A percentage of all race profits will be made to our chosen charity for 2022, The Chestnut Appeal for Mens Health.
