Meeting at Kraken’s home port of Gunwharf Quays, the RORC Myth of Malham race is also known as the Eddystone Race.
This course will take us West around the Eddystone lighthouse off Plymouth and back to Cowes. This is a longer RORC race weekend at around 230nM. This race is a rollercoaster of a ride, comprising of an upwind sail to the lighthouse followed by a downhill spinnaker ride back to Cowes.
Meeting on Friday night at Kraken’s home port Gunwharf Quays around 18:00 -19:00 for a crew get-together, yacht prep and dinner. Saturday morning head to Cowes and race start. The race normally takes 2 days, returning to Gunwharf Quays on Monday.

Kraken is a stripped-out racing boat with very few luxuries, so please expect high side hot bunking, freeze-dried food – as the galley consists of a sink and 1 camping stove for boiling water and a very exciting gimbled heads!
On Kraken we like to be fully inclusive and give amateur sailors the chance to participate in all aspects of sailing the boat – we can assure you; you will not just be sitting on the rail.
