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 be stored securely in a tented structure with wooden floors and shelves. There will be a steward on duty 24hrs to keep the bags safe until the owners arrive and reclaim them.

Locations

There will be two locations available for teams to drop off bags and sails: Hamble Yacht Services, Hamble and Cowes Harbour Commission, Cowes. Both ‘drop off’ sites will be in the main car parks.
