CCSC Cruisers (Past) » Fastnet Race 1979
Do you remember this offshore yacht racing disaster 44 years ago or are you not old enough and possibly have only a vague idea of what occurred?
Two of the young crew on the Castle Cove Sailing Club entry, the UFO 34 Kamisado, will recall their memories of that terrible storm which resulted in the largest rescue operation in offshore yacht racing history. As time passes the opportunities of hearing personal accounts of this infamous race are getting fewer.
So cancel your other plans and be at the Club at 7.00 for 7.30 pm start. The bar will be open.
Note There will be a silent collection (notes only!) for the RNLI, so come prepared.
