The Rolex Fastnet yacht race is heading back to Plymouth next year.

THE Rolex Fastnet yacht race is coming back to Plymouth in 2015 with the promise that more locals will be able to get involved in the excitement. The biennial event will see 340 yachts, some 100ft in length, come into Plymouth during the 608-miles race in August, which features inshore and offshore sailing. The arrival of the skippers and their crews is set to coincide with the British Fireworks Championships on the Hoe, which will take place on Tuesday 18 and August 19. Jamie Yabsley, in charge of events and marketing at Plymouth City Council, said more would be done to integrate the event and get people involved. “We want to market it as more of a Plymouth event this time,” said Mr Yabsley. “We want to engage more with the skippers and their crews and create interaction between them and the retailers of the waterfront and the Barbican area,” he explained.
