Solent Cruiser Race & Rally 2021

Calendar   Events
Date Saturday, May 1, 2021 (all day)
Duration   3d

The first Cruising event of 2021 is the Solent Cruiser Race and Rally that is on the first May Bank Holiday, Saturday 1 – Monday 3 May.
On the Saturday we will be going to Gosport and berths have been booked in Haslar marina, then onto Cowes on Sunday where berths have been booked in Shepards Wharf and finally back to Hamble on Monday. Sadly we will not be having our usual supper at the Island Sailing Club but I am sure you can eat well on board or maybe have a take away. There does seem to be a few. Here is the link for them. (
If you just want to rally please let the Sailing Office know. All are welcome including the motor boaters.
Legs are as follows:
  • Saturday – Hamble to Haslar Marina (Gosport)
  • Sunday – Haslar Marina to Shepards Wharf (Cowes)
  • Monday – Cowes to Hamble
Handicapping System
A handicapping system was developed by the late Angus Primrose to allow for yachts to motor for half the elapsed time of each leg, so it includes details on the engine including horsepower and the type of propeller. There is a penalty for over motoring. We also give a prize for the least percentage of engine time on both Cruiser Races.
