The perfect evening. Pictured: Giles Redpath's Lombard 46 Pata Negra. 🌅 - The #RORCTransatlanticRace is unfinished business for Giles Redpath's British Lombard 46 Pata Negra. In 2016 Pata Negra retired after damage to the starboard rudder. Since then Pata Negra has won the Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race and the Antigua Bermuda Race, and must be considered as one of the favourites for the 2019 RORC Transatlantic Race. - 📸 RORC/Paul Wyeth

The Wally 100 Dark Shadow is the largest entry to date in the 2019 RORC Transatlantic Race. - The Wally 100 Dark Shadow is the largest yacht on the entry list and although the 100ft Frers-designed carbon-fibre Maxi has close to 5,000 sq. ft. of sail area, she faces fierce competition for line honours. - Dark Shadow's Race Skipper will be Australian Yerin Hobson and the international crew have sailed for the owner in over 30 races, including two previous Transatlantic Races. The team's first objective is to beat their own transatlantic race record of 11 days, 21 hours, 33 minutes. - #RORCTransatlanticRace

The 2020 @ircrating European Championship will be held at Cork Week as part of the unique celebration of the 300th anniversary of the Royal Cork Yacht Club. - The 5th edition of the IRC European Championship will take place over five days of racing from Monday 13th July to Friday 17th July 2020. The championship is expected to attract a record fleet of highly competitive IRC rated boats vying for the overall win and class honours. - “The Irish IRC fleet are highly competitive and with a large majority of Irish boats already holding IRC Endorsed certificates there is the prospect of many strong Irish entries,” commented Director of Rating for IRC, Dr Jason Smithwick. “With this diverse range of boat types racing under the IRC rating system we have been working closely with the Royal Cork Yacht Club to create an exciting and varied race programme with a mixed range of courses. This balance of course types will allow all boats to have a chance and create a fair and interesting event for the competitors. The IRC rating offices have also been working with the organisers to have a thorough programme of equipment inspection to ensure good equipment control before and during the event,” continues Smithwick. - Corinthian teams racing small and medium size boats have enjoyed tremendous success in the IRC European Championship. In 2016 the inaugural championship was hosted by the Royal Cork Yacht and was won overall by Royal Cork's Paul Gibbons racing Quarter Tonner Anchor Challenge. For the last three championships French teams have won overall. The 2020 IRC European Championship will feature high performance boats, including a number of FAST40+ teams expected to be racing under IRC. Prizes are also awarded to the best Corinthian team, as well as individual IRC Classes. - #RORCracing #IRCEuros © Paul Wyeth . . . #racing #yachting #blue #instayacht #yachtrace #boats #yachtinglifestyle #yachts #yachtsofinstagram #yachtrace #harbour #waves #sailinglife #spring #sailing #sea #boat #yacht #oceans #sailaway #sun #windy #water #spinaker #sail #beach #irc #cork

The @rolexmiddlesearace has one of the most spectacular courses of all the classic offshore races. - Organised by the @royalmaltayachtclub, the lap of Sicily takes competitors through the Strait of Messina, past the shadow of Mount Etna, around the active volcano of Stromboli, along the north and west coasts of Sicily down to the island of Lampedusa, off Tunisia, before returning to Valletta and its ancient, massively fortified city walls. It is renowned for its unpredictable and rapidly changing weather. - 2019 marks the 40th edition of this epic offshore. The race starts on Saturday 19 October. - #RORCracing #RolexMiddleSeaRace 📸 @rolex / @kurtarrigo

64 entries in the RORC Cherbourg Race enjoyed a beautiful sunset, hiking out for a beat up the Solent, before cracking sheets for a night race to Cherbourg at high speed under a waxing moon. 🌅 - A spinnaker reach in 10-15 knots of westerly breeze produced a fast ride across the English Channel. As the majority of the fleet approached the finish, the breeze veered north, creating a tactical finale of gybing to stay at the optimal angle and in the best pressure. - Mark Emerson's A13 Phosphorus II is the overall winner of the 2019 RORC Cherbourg Race, having scored the best corrected time under @ircrating. - #rorcracing 📸 Rick Tomlinson . . . #sailboat #sunset #yachting #nature #sun #instagood #love #beach #water #sailing #boating #boats #beautiful #sailor #yachtlife #picoftheday #adventure #sky #blue #sailingstagram #sailingboat #boatlife #france #cherbourg #mothernature #yachtphotography #fun #yachtstagram #goldenhour
