What is SWSA?

Spice up your sailing with some friendly evening or weekend racing. You’ll meet like-minded enthusiasts and forget everything but your boat, the wind and sea. You’ll probably make some new friends, and you might even end up with a prize! Make a weekend of it and book a berth for the night nearby at Hythe Marina.
Submit your annual entry form available under the documents tab above, then just turn up at the start of any race to take part. Simple.
You’ll also find Race Reports and lots more photos from our sailing races on social media.
