RORC Morgan Cup

The course for 2020 has not been confirmed yet.

The 2019 edition was cancelled due to COVID 19. This year’s RORC Morgan Cup Race was expected to be extremely popular. The race was to finish in Cork harbour for the first time – to coincide with the Cork 300 celebrations for the 300th anniversary of the oldest yacht club in the world – the Royal Cork Yacht Club.

The course had the fleet travelling the traditional south-westerly route past the Lizard and Land’s End and then on across the Celtic Sea to Crosshaven in Cork.

This 300nm offshore race had a real tactical element with plenty of tidal gates and headlands to consider, as well as a great open sea stretch in the St. Georges Channel.

Organised by the RORC, the Royal Cork Yacht Club, the Royal Yacht Squadron and the Royal Thames Yacht Club.

RORC Morgan Cup Race onboard Telefonica Black

Date: 10 Jul — 14 Jul 2021

Location: Portsmouth, UK — Cork, Ireland

Distance: 324 Nm

Category 3 Race with Category 2 liferaft, AIS Transponder and RORC prescriptions

To quote one of our crew

“life is too short to do long races on a small boats”

Telefonica Black was born to race, here are some of the race records she holds:

  • Round Britain and Ireland – 5 days 21 hours
  • Fastnet – 1 day 18 hours and 39 mins (fastest 24 hours during the race 530miles)
  • The fastest monohull world record of 596.6 miles in 24 hours. This was held for 7 years until it was broken by Commanchie in 2015

When you book onto one of our races you are fully committing yourself, you are not a passenger on this boat. We keep the boat running, look after you, keep you fed and watered and provide support on all the watches.

We provide a professional skipper, 2 watch leaders and a Navigator. You are split into 2 watches. On short races, there are 3-hour watches and on longer races, they are 4 hours. The skipper floats between both watches and is always on hand if you need him. The watch leaders help(s) you in all aspects of the deck, from sail changes to evolutions. They have experience on the yacht and will keep you safe and competitive.

The navigator is there for your safety. As a crew you will call the race tactics and course, however, the navigator is onboard to help guide you, explain the boats polars, let you know the wind rating on the sails and most importantly, make sure you don’t bump into anything!

They also do all the cooking and cleaning so you get to focus on racing.

We cover a broad spectrum of different types of racing and there is something for everyone.

Extras Included

  • Safety Equipment (Lifejacket & Tether)
