Rolex Fastnet Race - Spectator zone now in place
Wed, 7 Aug 2013
From 1100 on Sunday 11 August, a Spectator Zone will be in place for the start of the Rolex Fastnet Race in Cowes. Spectator craft wishing to watch the record-breaking 350+ boat fleet set off on the 608nm race will be able to do so from the safety of the Zoned area.
The two hour start sequence which runs between 1200 and 1400 will be in place from 1100 on the day.
Boats wishing to transit in and out of Cowes to the River Medina will be able to do so through the Spectator Zone which will ensure they are kept out of the way of the start line off the Royal Yacht Squadron. However, moorings are to remain clear until after the last start at 1400.
All spectator craft must observe this zone to ensure a safe start for the 45th edition of the Rolex Fastnet Race run by the Royal Ocean Racing Club.
