The Royal Ocean Racing Club

£19.99

Product description

The Royal Ocean Racing Club, also called RORC, was established in 1925, named Ocean Racing Club, as a result of a race to the Fastnet rock from Cowes and finishing in Plymouth. The RORC is the principal organiser of offshore yacht races in the UK, including the Fastnet Race, the Admiral's Cup and the Commodores' Cup. RORC was founded to encourage long distance yacht racing and the design, building and navigation of sailing vessels in which speed and seaworthiness are combined.

Ian Dear explores the colourful history of both the club and the sport of Ocean Racing, from 1925 through to 2000.

This book has some slight indentations and faint marks on the dust jacket, as well as faint pencil marks on the first inside page. Otherwise it is generally in a very good condition.
