Are there organised offshore racing trips?

The Club has been organising offshore racing trips since its inception in 1989.

We have raced in the Irish St. Leger at the Curragh, in Listed races at Deauville and many times at Les Landes (Jersey) and L’Ancresse (Guernsey.)

Our most recent offshore winner was Robbmaa (Mattie Batchelor) a 10/1 winner at Les Landes on our last offshore racing trip, Jersey – 12th August 2012. We’re due another trip!
