The Solo Offshore Racing Club (SORC) is a growing band of single handed sailors who compete in a full racing programme each season, comprising an Inshore and an Offshore series.
On July 2nd 2016 they ran the first Round the Rock Race,their most ambitious race to date, which was run on the same course as the famous Rolex Fastnet Race. An epic event, sailed in sometimes punishing conditions, you can read about it here
Pontos are proud to be sponsoring SORC this season, providing prizes in the Inshore Series and the Round the Island Race, and as acting as a Silver sponsor for the Round the Rock race.
Pontos winches are ideal for single-handed and short handed sailors because they make sail handling more efficient, thereby reducing fatigue, the No 1 enemy of the single hander.
