Yacht Racing

Yacht Racing

Yacht racing is one of the most exciting team sports around, requiring skill and team work.
Why not join us and race our Sigma 38 in one of the largest One Design fleets on the South Coast.

One Design yacht racing offers some of the closest racing – because all the boats are identical it is the crew that makes all the difference. We cater for all levels of experience as we race with a mix of experienced and less experienced sailors.

In 2013 the Sigma 38 celebrated its 25th anniversary. To celebrate we had a look at the yacht designer David Thomas and some of the other One Design yachts he has designed including the Sigma 38 Offshore One Design.
