 it was some of the best offshore sailing I’ve done – really excellent, We were going very fast but the guys were matching our speed.”



VOLVO Round Ireland Race

Stuff of Legend.

Every 2 years the Round Ireland Race sets sail from Wicklow Dublin. A total of approximately 706Nm & 5/6 days at sea (subject to conditions)   

Never too far from shore you are constantly watching the ever changing Irish coast. Stunning vistas through the Irish Sea, the Atlantic west coast before passing the Fastnet Rock into the Celtic Sea before reaching the finish back at Wicklow (Dublin).


We prefer you to have some offshore experience and an appetite for adventure and racing. Preferably you have a either JOG or RORC racing in your CV with plenty of overnight passages.If not don't worry we will be participating in two RORC races as part of the race package.

What's included?

All race entry and mooring fees,

1 x training weekend 21-22 April 2018

2 x RORC qualifying races

1 x Feeder Race to Ireland (optional) 25-29 Jun TBC or the delivery from the Solent to Dublin (optional) TBC.

1 X RORC  Round Ireland Race. Starts 30th June  

The Feeder Race is a free option, although we appreciate many cant afford the additional time off work.

Note the yacht will remain in Ireland for Cork Week so there is no delivery back to the Solent.

1 X TEAM Shirt and we do the best TEAM shirts. The number of enquiries we get for them alone is unbelievable.

All accommodation is onboard the yacht.

You will need to arrange your own flights back from or/and to Dublin if you are not doing the feeder race/delivery.

Qualifying Races

Please note should a qualifying race be cancelled due to light winds or extreme conditions you may be required to participate in a delivery to satisfy the experience requirements as directed by the race organisers,.


Professional racing skipper and first mate, accommodation on board, high-quality food aboard yacht whilst racing and training, full shore-support plus team custom shirt to keep.

How to book?

You can book now with a small deposit of £800 by bank transfer BACs. That will secure your place.

Then pay in instalments.

Competitively Priced

Yes we are significantly cheaper than our competitors operating identical or similar yachts. Why? We are a smaller business with less overheads. The yacht your racing on will be just as well equipped and looked after. Possibly to a higher standard as we treat her as our baby with loads of TLC and constant upgrades including new North 3Di Sails in 2017 and plans to add more. We still race her hard but she gets loads of TLC between events with the best kit.

Price: £2,950

Should you require RYA & ISAF sea survival  training we can arrange this for you. Cost will be an additional £220.



Date 30th June 2018

TEAM Anarchy Agenda

We train hard & we will race hard. We insist on having fun.

We treat you as a mate, a TEAM member. Technically your a guest but hopefully you are a new friend for life.

We want you involved, not sitting out on the rail. Yeah, yeah, there will be a bit of that and the skipper will take his turn too. But we share duties and we value your input.

TEAM Anarchy, as it says we are a team.

If you want to feel like an outsider and receive special attention we are not for you.

If you want to be apart of something amazing both on land & sea then give us a call. Chris 07870 403888

Our yacht Fireball blasting off the line at the start of the Rolex Fastnet Race 2017

Flying her new North 3DI mainsail & No3 Headsail.

Wind speeds were actually 14 kts and we were hitting  8 kts as we settled into the race.

As a tactical gain we will be using non overlapping headsail's in 2018 for offshore racing reducing our handicap by 20 points with little or no loss in performance except in the lightest of airs below 4 kts. With ambitions of adding a code Zero to the sail wardrobe.
