Cowes Dinard St Malo
July 8, 2016 - July 11, 2016£450
The Cowes Dinard Race is one of the oldest races in the RORC Calendar and one of the most popular cross channel races in the calendar as it coincides with Bastille Day in St Malo. Starting on Friday lunchtime on the Yacht Squadron Line and finishing just outside the historic town of St Malo, the course takes you out the Solent to west, past the Needles around the Channel Islands to the finish just off the impressive ramparts of St Malo’s old town.
The race is tactical due to the tides around the Channel Islands, and its duration is around 24 hours – getting you in to St Malo in time for an afternoon exploring St Malo, or at least the bars and cafes there, before heading home!
Approximate Distance: 175nm
