The Royal Tay Yacht Club and the Royal Norwegian Yacht Club are hosting this event in July this year. The race, which leaves Oslo on 6 July and is expected in Dundee by 10 July,  is sponsored by Alliance Trust.

There will be a pursuit race followed by a cruise in company from Oslo to Dundee (the Fram to the Discovery) to mark the polar expeditions of just over 100 years ago by Roald Amundsen and Robert Scott. We are looking for a fleet of 20 to 30 yachts, a mixture of Norwegian and UK vessels. Both clubs have arranged an excellent social programme in Oslo and Dundee to make this a memorable experience for all participants.

Norway is easily accessible from the east coast of the UK and the northern isles. The Forth/Clyde and the Caledonian Canals make the event accessible to west coast yachts. A skipper participating in the event will find it challenging, enjoyable and a highly rewarding experience.
