This event has passed and can no longer be booked.

Event Date: 24 May 2024

For the first offshore races of 2024 we are going to the Cherbourg Peninsula & back - Friday 24th to Monday 27th May.

By popular demand our May Bank holiday racing will take us from the Central Solent to the Cherbourg Peninsula, via St Vaast and on to Cherbourg.

Race 1 will see us starting from the Lisburne/JOG start line on Friday 24th for an overnight race heading east out of the Solent and across to St Vaast, our arrival planned to coincide with lock opening Saturday (0935 to 1449 BST).   Thereafter Saturday will be a rest day with prize giving on the pontoons and a fleet dinner ashore.

Race 2
A late morning start after the lock opening (1015 to 1528 BST) with a blast around to Cherbourg, hopefully all of us moored up in time for prizes and a fleet meal ashore.

Race 3:
A reasonably early start to the Eastern Solent, leaving Bembridge Ledge to port and finishing at North Stourbridge buoy.
