About the RORC Round Britain and Ireland Race:
The RORC Round Britain and Ireland Race, organised by Royal Ocean Racing Club, is one of the most challenging events in the offshore racing calendar and occurs just once every four years!
Performance Yacht Racing have all their yachts available for this epic challenge. We offer a full race package that ensures crew train together and have the minimum experience requirement of 500 nautical miles of RORC offshore racing, on the boat entered into the race. This results in our teams being not only ready to tackle this unique event but also able to be competitive in their class.
