Television clip from the Fastnet

Last year was a special year for pupils at Dauntsey’s as the School’s historic tall ship Jolie Brise celebrated her 100th birthday.

The highlight of the year saw pupils joining the boat to compete in the Fastnet Race and the crew of sixth formers were delighted to break Jolie Brise’s previous record in the race, set over 75 years ago, by 24 hours.

The film clip below is an extract from the ‘Rolex Spirit of Yachting’ series on the Fastnet Race 2013 that appeared on SKY television last September. (Produced by IMG)
