The RORC St Malo race is one of the most popular RORC races on the calendar and the walled port city of St Malo, Brittany, France welcome racers with its seafood and fine wines.  The 170-mile race pre-dates the Royal Ocean Racing Club by almost 20 years, with the overall winner taking the impressive gold-plated King Edward VII Cup, presented by the British Monarch to the Club Nautique de la Rance at Dinard in 1906. The Cowes Dinard St Malo Race is the ninth race of the 13 race series for the RORC Season’s Points Championship and except the Rolex Fastnet Race, is likely to have the largest entry of the RORC season.
The timing of the race coincides with the celebration of the storming of the Bastille in 1789, a symbol of the uprising of the modern French nation. Bastille Day is one of the biggest celebrations throughout France and the fortress village of St Malo will be a hive of festivities and cultural celebrations culminating in an impressive firework display.
