Cruising and racing events 2019

The 2019 sailing season has a varied selection of racing and cruising opportunities for our members and guests. We would like to encourage as many members as possible to take part in these racing and cruising events. Check out below what’s lined up and let us have your feedback.

The Haven Combined Clubs points series is open to cruising yachts from any of the participating clubs and entry is free. We would love to see a turnout of at least three PMSC boats in each race. This is a great opportunity to hone sailing skills while competing against others and, as an added incentive, the best performing PMSC boat in each race wins a PMSC trophy!

There is a selection of cruising events, which we have tried to make as varied as possible to include day sailing as well as overnight cruises to more distant locations. Take a look, let us know if any of these appeal to you and if not, let us know of any other ideas you may have. We would love to hear from you.

And of course we also have the ever-popular Smack & Working Boat race, the Barge Match and the Pin Mill SC Regatta, dates confirmed as follows:

Smack & Working Boat Race - 13th July
Barge Match -27th July
PMSC Regatta – 7th September

There is also a time trial that can be undertaken by anyone at any time between 1st April and the 1st October. Click here for details..
