Rolex Fastnet Race Bag Drop

An organised Bag and Sail Drop will be available for all competitors for this year's Rolex Fastnet Race, with two drop off points, one in Cowes and one at Hamble Yacht Services.

Competitors at this year's Rolex Fastnet Race will be able to take advantage of the Fastnet Race, Bag and Sail Drop, which is being managed on behalf of the Royal Ocean Racing Club, by Activate Switch Limited.

Teams will be waiting to take-in crew bags and any boat sails from either Hamble or Cowes that need shipping to Plymouth. Once at Plymouth the bags and sails will be held securely at the Rolex Fastnet Race Village. This year, all bags will remain stored securely within the truck until the owners arrive in Plymouth to collect the bags. This will ensure that all bags remain dry and secure throughout the transit. Once in Plymouth the bags will be kept under lock and guarded 24hrs per day, by the security team.
