Biscay Triangle Rally with Yachting Monthly
Yachting Monthly are joining forces with Blue Water Rallies this year for the exciting Biscay Triangle Rally, an annual three-week cruising-only event. It is ideal for yachtsmen who are looking for a long-range cruise in company with the backing of a professional support team.
The rally starts on 22 July from Torquay where it is hosted by the Royal Torbay Yacht Club and pontoon moorings are provided by Torquay Marina. Yachts are scheduled to arrive, after a four-day, 480 nautical mile passage, at La Coruna, Spain where the Real Club Nautico act as hosts.
After a three-to four day stopover the fleet cruises north-east to La Trinite in Brittany (360 nm). After a further three-day stopover with a programme of events at the Societe Nautique the fleet then returns to Torquay (240 nm) where a farewell supper and presentations are held on 8 August.
The event is open to monohulls and catamarans with a minimum length of 31ft LOA and a minimum crew of skipper plus one. The entry fee is £250 for yacht, skipper and one crew member, plus £50 for each additional crew member.
