Hi folks, Is there to be such an event in 2018 and has a date been set ?. I know 2018 is the Transatlantic event but I cant remember if the Baltimore trip is every year or if it fills in the gaps between the Atlantic/Azores trips. Many thanks all .....

There's nothing to stop you gathering a bunch of like-minded friends, and doing your own. That is entirely in keeping with the original ethos.

For what it's worth I'm intending to do Plymouth fastnet and back again non stop (or similar) in 2018 to build single handed miles. No dates as yet.

Why not stop a while in Baltimore or Crookhaven? You don't need a passport - yet....

I want to do a 500 Nm non stop single handed trip so the idea is to go there and back in a extended sort of way. Also, if things get difficult I can always call in for a swift half before returning to Plymouth.

There is also the 'Rioja Raid', starting from Plymouth 29 July, which should meet the parameters and also have a number of Jester types along. See preceding thread....

The Rioja Raid would have been fun but unfortunately I will not be able to get enough time of work for that this year. Plymouth Fastnet Plymouth will give me about 500Nm in a weeks (ish) leave.
