Cruise to watch the start of the 2021 Fastnet Race. RORC expects a fantastic fleet to attend one of the world’s great ocean races! After witnessing the departure of the multihulls and IRC 2, IRC 1 and IRC Z & VO65 classes from Cowes, Shieldhall will continue westwards towards The Needles, one of the most photographed and iconic coastal locations in the UK. On your return pass the departing cruise ships Britannia and Arcadia (subject to confirmation)  –  always the chance to sound Shieldhall’s distinctive whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’!

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 volunteer crew; pass close to the great ocean liners and container ships; walk the teak decks; listen to an informed commentary; relax in the Saloon with a 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 an interactive Shieldhall Log Book, collecting stickers from various stations on board!
