Sailing 2017


Sailing Instructions and Notice of Race
are at the bottom of the page.

We race a handicap fleet, which means all is fair and equitable.  Two races on Saturday afternoons, one race on Wednesday evenings, then one race on Saturday afternoons as the nights draw in.  Kids' Sailing on Saturdays for children accompanied on the water by their parents.  We have a variety of courses and special races, as well as days when groups from the local community join us for sailing.  See the documents at the bottom of this page for details.

There is usually a barbecue in the boat pen after sailing on Saturdays to which all are welcome; please come and join us.

We also have a regatta once a year when visiting boats are also welcome to join us.  
Of course, visiting boats are welcome to sail with us during any of our races, provided your details are passed to the Race Officer prior to the race.

If you would rather simply enjoy the sailing in the most picturesque bay in the country at your own pace, then our safety boat crew and the occasional dolphin will keep a watchful eye over you.

Portsmouth Yardstick Numbers 2017 for dinghies used in the club, plus one or two that usually turn up for our regatta and summer sailing.
