Single-handed sailing race in Southampton Water
test your skills
One of SWSA's most popular races
Pit your skill against the rest : just you and your boat in a single-handed sailing race on Southampton Water. All of the credit for a good result – all of the blame …..
Our annual single-handed race is always exciting. Sailed with white sails only and with little opportunity to change headsails, the right sail choice is critical on this single handed sailing race in Southampton Water.
The use of self steering gear is allowed and a good lookout essential, as is sunscreen and a sense of humour. The last 2 years have enjoyed clear blue skies and a gentle breeze for this ever-popular race day.
The course will be chosen from 8 weekend and single-handed race courses depending on wind direction on the day.
This year’s single-handed race will start at 1.00pm, and since Southampton high tide is at 13.42 there will be plenty of time for competitors to gather at Hythe Sailing Club for a social after the race.
Results will be available on the day for celebrations and commiserations to get under way. The Marchwood Cannon is awarded to the winner of Class 1, and the Bronze Cleat goes to the winner of Class 2.
Is it your year to take a trophy home?
