The Class Association runs a programme of fully crewed* one-design racing in the Solent running from May to September. We have strong relationships with most of the Solent-based yacht clubs and each year we get 5-6 of them to run our racing and provide a social event in the evening. The programme is a variety of courses from Windward-Leward to short 4-6 hour passage races reflecting the true versatility of our wonderful boat!
We all berth together in the closest marina and there is normally a pontoon party to allow skippers and crew to unwind and network after a hard afternoon on the race course. We also do the Round the Island Race and have our own class starts during Cowes Week.
The behaviour on the race course is considerate and non-threatening and we do all we can to help new-comers into the fleet.
*Typically boats will race with 4-7 crew aboard for the inshore points series. Note that the Association also promotes two-handed and other racing activities.
