SEVENSTAR Yacht Transport Bag Drop Service

An organised Bag and Sail Drop will again be available for all competitors at this year’s Rolex Fastnet Race, which is kindly being supported by SEVENSTAR.  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 Sevenstar 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 in the Sevenstar Bag Drop marquee, in the Race Village. All bags will be stored securely, with 24hr security and access, in a dry tented structure with solid wooden floors and shelves.


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.

Hamble Yacht Services, Hamble (Friday 2nd August 1500 - 1800)

Cowes Yacht Haven, Cowes (Saturday 3rd August 0600 - 0900)
