Ocean Racing:
' The Fastnet Race'
Richard Longland
The Fastnet Race has been described as ' the blue riband of ocean racing '. It was first organised in 1925 by a small and enthusiastic band of yachtsmen, with seven starters, and it has now become an international event. The original course, which is still followed, goes from Cowes down the Channel, across to Jreland, where the Fastnet Rock is rounded, and back to Plymouth, and is renowned for giving a wide variety of wind and sea conditions, from a flat calm to a full gale.
Richard Longland , who will talk about the history of the race and describe the start at Cowes today, is a member of the Royal Ocean Racing Club, and sailed in the Fastnet Race of 1931.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome
