We are primarily a racing club, racing a variety of keelboats, some multihulls, and traditional gaff-rigged boats. At present there are six racing classes. Racing takes place on Tuesday evening and Saturday afternoon. There is also a short joint series with RCYC which takes place on a Friday evening, their normal racing evening. From time to time additional special races take place, usually on a Thursday evening.

To race you must complete the Race Registration and Entry Form and pay the appropriate racing fee. If you are already a Club member, you can purchase a discounted block entry. If you are not a Club member, you can still race, but you pay a little more. If you want to enter specific series, or races, you can do so, at a fairly nominal amount.

Block entry Club Member £60
Block entry non Member £105
Charity Race (Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust) discretionary
Individual series £8–£32
Individual races £6 or £8
FWB Special Races (FWB Cup) £50
  • Block entry covers all regular series and races.
  • Charity Race: how much you contribute is at your own discretion. The suggested minimum is £10 but all and any contributions are accepted. All the proceeds from the race go to the designated charity.
  • For Individual Series the entry fee is related to the number of races in the series. Check the Race Registration and Entry Form for the exact amount.
  • For Individual Races (which includes the Silver Sunbeam and the Midsummer Regatta) the fee is £6 per race: However the Gull Rock Manacles Race is £8.
  • Working Boats who only race in the races which comprise the FWB Cup, pay £50.

Whether you are a member or not, whether you race or not, you will still be welcome back in the Clubhouse for one of our excellent hot suppers washed down with a pint or two of Betty Stogs.
