The Club has had a long history in racing from the very first days of the Club. Originally sailing from venues around the Thames and then into the Solent and East Coast. Later on the Club broadened its sailing into bigger yachts which meant it was able to compete in offshore sailing. Club Members continue to race in a variety of craft from windsurfers to larger offshore racers. The Club has had many entries into the Fastnet race over the years (latest was a fully RNR crew in 2015 and now in Volunteer in 2019) in Club owned yachts and members own craft.
It is intended the 2019 programme will include both offshore and inshore races as well as race training and we intend to provide opportunities for regatta participation.
Our yacht Volunteer has a place on the FASTNET race and Members are encouraged to get involved to support this campaign.
