Home / Royal Ocean Racing Club 2016 / Brewin Dolphin Commodores' Cup 2016 / Offshore Race - Day 2+3 Mon 25-Tues 26 Jul 45

@ RORC/Paul Wyeth. For the 24 competing yachts in the Brewin Dolphin Commodores' Cup today was the 'big one'. Designed to last 24 hours or more, the offshore race is the longest in the Royal Ocean Racing Club's biennial flagship event for three boat teams with Corinthian crews. A good result in it is vital as it comes with a 2.5x points co-efficient.. This year the race committee set a course of 153 miles (as the crow flies). Starting from the Royal Yacht Squadron line the course is east down the Solent and along the Sussex coast towards the turning mark at the Royal Sovereign lighthouse south of Bexhill. The boats then return west south of the Isle of Wight and then past Needles Fairway Buoy and on to the finish at the North Head buoy off Milford on Sea.
