RORC Morgan Cup 2017
The RORC Morgan Cup Race is an overnight race to the Channel Island of Guernsey. St. Peter’s Port is a small town consisting mostly of steep narrow streets and steps on the overlooking slopes. It is known that a trading post/town has existed here since before Roman times, the pre-Christian name of which has not survived into the modern era.
As a bailiwick, Guernsey embraces not only the Island of Guernsey, but also the islands of Alderney and Sark and the smaller islands of Herm, Jethou and Lihou. Although its defence is the responsibility of the United Kingdom, the Bailiwick is not part of the United Kingdom but rather a possession of the British Crown. Together, the Bailiwick of Guernsey and Bailiwick of Jersey form the geographical grouping known as the Channel Islands. and has been a popular race destination of both RORC and JOG.
After the race there will be time to explore before cruising back to Hamble on Sunday night.
For many boats that are competing in the Rolex Fastnet Race the RORC Morgan Cup is an important qualifier.
