The Rolex Fastnet Race is one of sailing’s ultimate challenges: a racecourse that has achieved mythic status, a turning mark that is a true icon in sport and a near 100-years of history and tradition. The 48th edition attracted a record fleet of 388 yachts, of which 333 competed for the overall win on handicap. Conditions this year properly tested competitors from around the world. Professional and Corinthian crews alike experienced a broad range of weather and sea states; all had to overcome the notorious tidal and tactical challenges presented by the famous course. Records were broken, superlative performance converted into triumph and across the fleet endeavour was rewarded. An enduring legend has been polished once again.
