RORC Myth of Malham - Saturday 27t May 2017

The trophy and race are named after the yacht ‘Myth of Malham’ which was a 37’6″ sloop built in 1947 by Hugh McClean & Co at Greenock and designed by John Laurent Giles for John Illingworth. Myth of Malham won the 1947 and 1949 Fastnet Races and in 1957 was part of the winning team for the first Admiral’s Cup.

The course can be a described as a long windward leeward. Starting from Cowes, the top mark is the Eddystone Lighthouse approximately 12 miles SSW of Plymouth Sound and the race finishes in the Solent. The Eddystone Lighthouse was built between 1878 and 1892 and is mentioned in Herman Melville’s epic novel Moby-Dick. At 49 metres (161ft) high, Eddystone’s light is visible from 22 miles and along with Bishop Rock, it is the tallest lighthouse managed by Trinity House.
