Race Training

Race Training

Racing can be a great way of improving your sailing skills and confidence on the water. We provide race training as part of our inshore and offshore race programmes. Learn how to get a boat sailing quickly in a variety of conditions, upwind and downwind, then practise your new skills while racing.

Perhaps you are interested in campaigning your own boat in JOG, Hamble Winter Series, Warsash Spring Series or Round the Island?  One of our experienced race skippers can come on board and help you and your crew improve, tacking, gybing or unravelling the mysteries of a spinnaker.

We can work with you and your crew to establish the race basics, allowing you to enjoy and improve your racing whether it’s inshore or offshore, racing at club level or you are looking to make the leap to more serious racing.
