At Sunsail, we want everyone to enjoy their yacht racing events as much as we do and there’s nothing like a day out on the water for blowing away the cobwebs. We offer a choice of yacht racing options including casual cruising at various rallies and cruises during the year and for those with a competitive edge, why not join an exisiting regatta or if you have enough people then make your own.
We are involved in regattas all year round and all over the world, and in 2011 we introduced a brand new UK fleet of matched Beneteau First 40 yachts at our base in Port Solent. The social side of regatta sailing is great fun wherever you choose to race.
