THE ROLEX FASTNET RACE
Rolex and yachting
High winds, soaking spray, the percussive thump of a hull carving through rough seas. These are the things that get a sailor's adrenaline going, but the Celtic Sea and its temperamental weather patterns offer
far more. With the Fastnet Rock a turning point, there's still another
200 miles to the finish of the Rolex Fastnet Race.
Held every two years, it's one of the ultimate tests of a sailor's responsiveness, endurance, technical skills and nerve. It's why the race is a pilgrimage for so many, and why every victory is a legend in the making.
