Racing Weekends

Not for the faint hearted, weekend racing is a popular way of getting members out on the water to experience the thrill of yacht racing. It's also a great way to test your oilies and experience some heavier weather sailing in the relative shelter of the Solent during the Spring and Autumn.

The upcoming schedule is as follows:

Sunsail Racing Series Round 8 - 21st & 22nd October

A week-end of cans racing with Sunsails fleet of matched F40's

See 'Book your place' for further details. Contact if interested.
