Yacht Racing
Offshore Yacht racing with Poole Sailing is about being competitive and having FUN as well as improving your skills. You will be racing on well-prepared racing yachts, in a very sociable fleet, with some great racing skippers who also happen to be great instructors.

That makes our events the perfect introduction to yacht racing for beginners and expert sailors alike! For some light reading before you race look out for Rob’s latest book, ‘Start Yacht Racing’ published by the RYA.

Yacht racing is all about teamwork and to encourage that, we will book individuals onto a five-race series in 2022. Being part of a consistent team over a series of races will improve your individual skills, your confidence and results on the race course. We will book four individuals to join Rob and his professional crew for The Series. Price £1350 per person.
