The British sailing season wouldn't be complete without Poole Week, which takes place this year from 28th August to 2nd September.

One of the country's most popular events for dinghies and small keelboats, Poole Week is delighted to welcome back Bournemouth Digital as title sponsor. Badger Beers are sponsoring a day's racing and providing further support in the form of free beer daily for competitors, together with subsidised beer at the bar during the week. Prizes will be provided by Rooster, whose event-branded clothing will also be available for purchase.

Poole Week is known for competitive yet friendly racing combined with great social life ashore at Parkstone Yacht Club, offering:

  • Afternoon racing in Poole Harbour, with its spectacular backdrops of the Purbecks, Corfe Castle, Sandbanks, the Arne peninsula and Brownsea Island
  • Class starts for Dart 18s, Flying Fifteens, Merlin Rockets, RS200s, RS400s, ILCA 6s and 7s, Wayfarers, XODs, Cornish Shrimpers and Poole Dolphins. Handicap fleets too
  • Additional class starts for any class with 12 or more entries
  • Daily on-the-water coaching and post-race analysis by top coach Niall Myant-Best
  • Daily prize-givings (and you don't have to win a race to win a prize!)
  • Two free meals during the week for competitors
Enter by 29th May to qualify for the early-bird discount

Accommodation is available locally and there's much to do in and around Poole for non-sailing family and friends.
