by Gerald New 30 Jan 2013 17:12 GMT 16 February 2013

Who remembers the Pompey Perisher? For years the south coast's leading winter open event for dinghies, it is now just something of a memory. Hayling Island Sailing Club is proud to put the name firmly back in the calendar.

To be held annually in mid February on a Saturday, this year it makes a debut on the 16th Feb, with the first start at 13:30. A full length pursuit race held on top of the tide in the beautiful confines of Chichester Harbour, the event is open to all classes of dinghy and selected keelboats with performance spanning the RS Tera to the International Moth.

NOR and SI's can be found on the HISC website (or call 02392 463768). You are all very welcome.
