Solent Cruise with chance to view the Fastnet Race - Sailing from Southampton

Sunday 6th August 2017, 10:30 - 16:00

Please note: The Fastnet Race starts at 11am. We would like to leave at 9.30 instead of our advertised time of 10.30. All passengers have been contacted by Nigel Philpott, our Ticket Manager requesting them to come to the ship at an earlier time. Please come to the ship for a 9.30 departure time. If you have any questions, please email

RORC expects a fantastic fleet to attend the 91st anniversary of the Race! As part of your cruise, see the impressive engine room with its original steam engines at work and the bridge, with its traditional instruments and gleaming brasswork; admire the ship’s steam assisted steering gear (similar to that used on Titanic); talk to the Captain and our volunteer crew; listen to the informed commentary on the sights and sounds of Southampton Water and The Solent; pass close to the great ocean liners and container ships; walk the teak decks; relax in the Saloon with our wide range of refreshments including tea / coffee; real ale; a range of Titanic bottled beers; wine and hot and cold food, available on all trips.

Children will have fun with our interactive Shieldhall Log Book, collecting stickers from various stations on board!
