      A message from the Commodore of the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club

      Dear Competitors,

      Welcome to the 11th Red Ensign AZAB 2015 organised by RCYC Events Ltd.

      I am pleased to join Francis Shillitoe (Race Director) in announcing the publication of the Notice of Race which already has a substantial number of entrants.

      RCYC Events Ltd is proud to be host to this challenging ocean adventure, 40 years on from the first one in 1975. A special welcome back to the many familiar faces who seem to return time after time who will doubtless encourage and support the many new participants. A big welcome also to those of you who are joining us for the first time in this international ocean race.

      Prepare yourself and your vessel well.  We want you to be excited, thrilled but essentially safe for the Red Ensign AZAB 2015.

      We shall look forward to meeting you when you arrive in Falmouth and shall be pleased to assist and support in any way that we can.

      Keith Tullett

      Commodore

      Royal Cornwall Yacht Club

      Welcome to the AZAB 2015

      Welcome to AZAB 2015, the 2,400 mile ocean race, in the unlikely event of you sailing in a straight line!

      Having enjoyed my first AZAB Race in 2011, I now find myself as Race Director of 2015.

      Colin Drummond a founder /competitor of the AZAB in 1973 has passed the Race Director baton on to me and plans to join us Ponta Delgada  in 2015.

      It is an international ocean race for all comers, from experienced yachtsmen sailing 60 footers to the inexperienced guys like me with smallish boats. I had never raced my Moody 336 or sailed further than Brittany! The AZAB is open to single or two handed  crews.

      YES, you too can have the buzz of a friendly and supportive group of like-minded sailors.

      Our new AZAB committee have been busy preparing  the 2015 Notice of Race which is now available with a link to the entry form.

      Yours sincerely
      Francis Shillitoe
      Race Director AZAB 2015
