Are you ready to meet the challenge?


Racing a yacht can be an extremely exciting and memorable experience. The British Offshore Sailing School have offered individual berths on the prestigious Rolex Fastnet Race, selected Junior Offshore Group (JOG), Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) and other races since the early 1990’s.

Don't worry if you have never raced before, our experienced race skippers will train you to fulfill a useful role within the crew, mould those onboard into a team and get the best out of the yacht.

BOSS races yachts ranging in size from 32' cruiser racers, 38' Sigmas to ex Whitbread Round the World ocean racers. If you fancy experiencing the thrills of round the cans, offshore or ocean yacht racing contact our bookings office for the latest details. You’ll have a great time.
