The last race of the domestic season takes competitors on a dash across the Channel to Cherbourg. The race is usually won and lost in the escape from the Solent, in the strong tides on the approach to Cherbourg, or even the last mile along the inside of the breakwater of the Grande Rade. The race is never over until you are motoring in, ready for the lively welcome that awaits all competitors at the Yacht Club de Cherbourg.
