The 2019 Phantom national entries are now live, Lee on Solent Sailing Club is looking forward to hosting the Allen Brothers Phantom Nationals from the 6th to the 8th September 2019. With up to eight races over the three days and two discards, even missing the Friday gives a fighting chance of winning the event.

The principle sponsor for the event is Allen Brothers long time supporters of the class with additional prizes from Crewsaver, Dimension Polyant, Selden, Southern Ropes, North Sails, Moatt Sails, Morgan Sails and Office Design Works Ltd at time of writing with more to come nearer the event.

The entry fee of £150 includes all sailing, bacon rolls, two evening meals and a memento expertly embroidered by another of our sponsors Vicky embroidery services. The fee however is discounted by 30% until 11th August so get the entry in early to make use of this discount.

The club is currently in redevelopment but using our on the beach Signal Station bar and catering with a large Marquee for the evening meals and sail measuring if required. The important part being bar will be open for long periods

The race officer Stephen Parry (a former FD and Osprey sailor) and his team have vast experience running all sorts of racing from Dinghy Championships to Antigua week racing, with easy access to large launching area its all lining up to be an excellent week for sailing and socials.

Gosport BC have made a the field above Elmore car park available for campers and campervans just along from the club. We are also using the grass next to the Signal station for the Marquee and dinghy storage.

For non-sailors Lee is a great place as the sailing area is visible from the shore so you can watch who is going to be happy when they come ashore or if it might be worth buying a large drink for (and one for yourself) if its really bad. The local area has easy access to places of interest like the historical dockyard at Portsmouth and Gun Wharf Quays for retail therapy. Local sites will include the Spitfires flying from Solent Airport (Daedalus) and views of the Isle of Wight.

The Phantom fleet has always been competitive with talent from the super stars down to the real sailors at the blunt end of the fleet so there is always someone of the same ability to sail against with a trophy for first 'classic' and prizes throughout the fleet, if you don't come it'll haunt you forever.
