The 4th edition of the RORC TransAtlantic Race is an important year. The Race is being organised in association with the Yacht Club Costa Smerelda to celebrate their 50th anniversary and will also form the 1st leg of the Atlantic Anniversary Regatta to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Nordeutscher Regatta Verein, founded in 1868. This is sure to bring additional entries to the fleet, making it a truly unmissable race.
