Three sailing clubs in Langstone Harbour have got together and for the sixth time are putting together a 3 day dinghy sailing extravaganza over the Early May Bank Holiday weekend, 2nd – 5th May 2014. If you haven't heard of Langstone Harbour, now is your chance to check it out and have a real sailing treat. Situated between Portsmouth and Chichester Harbour, it's 8 square miles of glorious open tidal water that's home to 5 sailing clubs and a few million wading birds.

Each of the 3 days will see a series of handicap and class races for fast & medium fleets. The event organisers are very pleased to be welcoming the Wanderer Class to the event again this year for an open meeting, and welcome the RS200 class and Laser Vago class who have added the event to their respective circuits.

The event invites dinghy sailors from all across the south coast and beyond to compete in the series of exciting races held within the harbour. This year the race program will follow the format from last year, with two races per day on the Saturday and Sunday, using simple sausage / triangle style courses. The fifth and final race on Monday will be a longer affair, using navigation marks around the beautiful setting of Langstone Harbour. After the last few years being rather windy, this year we are hoping that the later date will bring us fair winds and some warm weather.

It's not just about racing!

Each club hosts a social event over the weekend (included in the entry fee) and there is something to suit everyone's tastes. Friday evening Tudor SC will start the weekend off with registration and a briefing before laying on a curry night with video and photo show from previous years. Locks SC follow on Saturday evening with a BBQ and Langstone SC take their turn on Sunday night with food and pub quiz. The weekend is rounded off on Monday afternoon with afternoon tea and prize giving ceremony at Tudor SC.

We are really lucky to have such loyal supporters and sponsors, who typically donate some wonderful prizes. The organisers try to award these throughout the fleets, with prizes given not only to those who stand on the podium.

The event enjoys entries of 60+ boats, with a cap of 100 boats placed on the event. Entry Fees for Weekend (including 3 evening socials and tea on Monday):

  • £40 Double-hander
  • £30 Single–hander
The NOR and online entry is now available from the event website www.langstonerace.co.uk and why not come and have a look at our facebook page to be kept up to date. www.facebook.com/LangstoneHarbourRaceWeekend.
