Captain Kuba Szymanski Kuba has done 9 Fastnet races in his sailing career. His last one was this July on his Beneteau First 40.7 yacht PolishedManx2 where he and his one-man crew experienced some bracing conditions in the Celtic Sea.

Kuba will relate his experiences in this unique yacht race and also its history and the risks all these seafarers take as was brought to the World’s attention in 1979 when yachts sank and their crews drowned. Many improvements were made in yacht safety after this event.

Members of the Public are welcome to attend this event free of charge.
