Yacht Racing

At Sunsail, we want everyone to enjoy their yacht racing events as much as we do and there’s nothing like a day out on the water to revitalize and refresh. We offer a choice of yacht racing options including casual cruising at various rallies and cruises during the year. For those with a competitive edge, you can join an exisiting regatta or if you have enough people, why not make your own? We are involved in regattas all year round and all over the world, and have a UK fleet of identical Sunsail First Match 40 yachts at our base in Port Solent. The social side of regatta sailing is great fun wherever you choose to race.

Sunsail Yacht Racing

We are the only large charter business in the Solent with an RYA Affiliated Yacht Club and therefore we are able to offer racing under the official racing rules of sailing. As a Solent Cruising & Racing Association member club we pay for use and upkeep of the SCRA racing buoys (the yellow special marks) in the Solent Area and therefore can use the official Racing Mark List.

As an SCRA member we work with all other Yacht Clubs in the Solent Area and Harbour Authorities to ensure that your regatta is safe from Shipping, Risk Assessed as per Local Notice to Mariners legal requirement and not delayed due to other yacht club events using the same marks.
