This year's media prize, courtesy of official clothing sponsor of the Rolex Fastnet Race, @mustoclothing, was awarded to the Greig City Academy team on Project Scaramouche. . . . Amongst the fleet of ocean racing pioneers and professionals, were 12 students from north London. Their Facebook and Twitter updates gave armchair sailors the opportunity to follow their every move during their Fastnet passage, but the Royal Ocean Racing Club believe their achievement to complete the Rolex Fastnet Race, as a team of young students in sailing, is something that should be commended. . . . Their campaign has attracted the eyes of many across the nation, not to mention coverage of their 'mission' on BBC News, Yachts and Yachting Magazine, The Times and The Sunday Times and Scuttlebutt Sailing News. Despite all the fantastic images and video content we received during the race, Project Scaramouche thoroughly deserve this prize. . . . We look forward to learning more about their continued journey in offshore sailing. . . . #rolexfastnetrace 📸 ELWJ ©

Repost @north_sails. . . . "The Fastnet Race is among the most challenging offshore races in the world, and this year was no exception​​!​ Some 2700 sailors aboard everything from 30 footers to the 115 ft Nikata, took on the highs and lows of this 605 nm offshore race – starting with an upwind slog out of the Solent." . . . 📸 Jen Edney / @volvooceanrace #rolexfastnetrace

Yesterday, Didier Gaudoux’s French crewed 39’yacht - Lann Ael 2, was declared the overall winner of the 2017 Rolex Fastnet Race on IRC handicap - prevailing from a record-breaking fleet of 362 yachts. . . . They completed the 605nm race in the early hours of Thursday morning setting a race time which proved unassailable for the remainder of the fleet. . . . Lann Ael 2 becomes the third straight French winner of the race…fulfilling a lifetime ambition for its proud owner. . . . #rolexfastnetrace 📸 Carlo Borlenghi ©

Commodore of the RORC, Skipper of Lisa, Michael Boyd shared some touching words about the #rolexfastnetrace this morning. . . . Emotional, Michael told us about journey round the rock. "The Fastnet itself was just extraordinary. We came up there in an absolutely clear sky at 0300, full moon, dolphins on our bow...can't fault the race in any one of its 604 miles." . . .
