Portland Friday evening informal racing

Portland - 29 Feb 16 Offshore

This year RNSA Portland has again teamed up with Castle Cove Sailing Club to host informal racing on a Friday evening in Portland Harbour and, if fine, Weymouth Bay. It is aimed principally at cruisers looking to get on the water for a fun and relaxed sail around the buoys.

It is open to all Weymouth club members, as well as any visiting RNSA boats, and represents a good opportunity to those new to racing to learn a bit about it. Light handed or fully crewed doesn't matter - come and have a go!

Races commence at approximately 1830 from the northern side of the harbour, run for up to an hour and a half, after which all participants are invited back to CCSC where a bar and a “bring your own food” bbq will be waiting.

Races are planned during May to July, then a break for the school holidays, recommencing in September, on the following evenings:

• May 20
• June 3, 10 and 17
• July 15 & 29
• September 9 and 16

Sailing Instructions are available to download on the link below.

Results will be posted here on the Portland Branch page of the RNSA website.

If you have any questions, are interested in taking crew or crewing, please contact Ian Bowker of RNSA ( or Stephen Green of CCSC - See you out there!
