So look – nearly everything you find on Another World Adventures follows the rule of SLOW travel. But hey, rules are made to be broken sometimes.

So if speed is your middle name, you haven’t got a summer plan for July sorted yet, you know how to sail and you’ve got a holiday-savings-pot to blow because you’ve not travelled for a year then I’ve got the trip for you.

The Rolex Fastnet Race 50th Anniversary!

We often get opportunities to join a crews in top draw boats entering the Rolex Fastnet Race. This one will be the biggest and best yet as it celebrates 50 years!

You’ll sail shoulder to shoulder with the professionals and enthusiasts alike, to push the boat to its limit around the iconic 695NM racecourse.

The Rolex Fastnet Race is probably the world’s most prestigious offshore yacht race and as part of the crew, you’ll be fully involved in both the preparation and racing of the yacht. There’s no paying to be “just rail meat” here. All crew members will have the chance to try every role onboard, from nav to helming to tactics to bow and – everyone’s favourite – sail trim!

Save the date: 22nd July-28th July 2023

Here’s a 30 second teaser video from #RolexFastnetRace

The Fastnet has got to be on every sailor’s bucket list as a serious challenge for your inshore and offshore skills as you battle it out for line honours.

See – when we break the rules we really go for it.
