The Club actively promotes racing as the best means to improve your sailng performance. Racing is open to all Club members - don't be put off if you're a beginner, come along and join in.

On the start line

We operate two handicap systmes, Portsmouth Yearstick the national handicap system to make an even playing field of different type of boat, and a personal handicap system to give novice racers a head-start which motivates leaners to take part. As an inclusive Club, the handicap system enables Sailability racers to compete competively.

Racing action

Racing usually takes place on Sundays with two races in the winter and three in the summer.

We offer a number of one-day racing events and short series for beginners as well as a Victor Ludorum for keen competitors where your best racing results in from a series of races throughout the year are taken into account.
