Are you interested in shorthanded offshore racing?

Do you want to experience it at the highest level?

If so, come and sail in the Figaro Nationals in Lorient, France this Autumn with the Offshore Racing Academy and Vivi Resources.

Kenny Rumball and Marcus Hutchinson are delighted to offer a full inclusive package for individuals and teams to come and experience the pinnacle of offshore shorthanded racing in the Figaro 3 Class at the Figaro Nationals in Lorient, France from the 7th-9th of October this year.

The Nationals held at the end of the season encompasses a mix of inshore and coastal course where there are 4 persons per boat. Marcus and Kenny are offering a full package that only requires you to get yourself and your team to Lorient. Logistics will be organised by our team allowing you to experience an in-depth exposure to the world of shorthanded offshore sailing in the hub - La Base Lorient.

The Figaro Nationals end of season event is the only fully crewed event with four persons onboard the powerful Figaro 3 to sail in an exciting mixture of windward-leewards, round the cans and a long distance coastal race circumnavigating the Ile de Groix. A great social life and entertainment is also a significant and guaranteed part of the package!

There will be 3 days of on and off the water coaching before the event led by Kenny Rumball who has accumulated 3 full years of experience in the highly competitive class. Coaching will run Tuesday the 4th to Wednesday 6th October. There are direct flights with Ryanair to nearby Nantes airport from Dublin on Monday the 3rd of October.

This is a full turnkey solution, no logistics to organise other than bring your own oilskins and boots. Marcus and Kenny will arrange race ready Figaro 3's, complete with sails and their envious streamlined backup service both on and off the water. We have several boats available which are all in full 2022 class specifications ready for the event.

For anybody interested in shorthanded offshore racing, this is an incredible opportunity to see meet and participate in the highest level of offshore One Design racing in the world.

For more information, please email Kenny Rumball of the Offshore Racing
