The club runs a comprehensive racing program for 8 months of the year.

The racing normally takes place on a Saturday morning with occasional full weekend races when we combine with the cruising section to visit neighboring ports.

Although the racing is competitive, it is conducted in a very friendly manner, our ultimate aim is to get as many boats out on the water as possible. Some crews take it very seriously while others see it as an opportunity to sail in the company of other boats.

The program has something for everyone, from racing around the harbour to full offshore events when we cross the English Channel. One of the best ways to improve sailing skills and gain valued experience is to race regularly.

Skippers are often in need of extra crew, so contact the club to get your name on the crew register.
