Solent Forts Race Weekend 2017

The 2017 edition of this event was held at Hayling Ferry Sailing Club on Sunday 17th June with a practice race on the Saturday and the Club’s ‘Band-on-the-Beach’ summer party on Saturday evening. The weekend was sponsored by Harken and Wildwind.

Both days were hot and sunny with a sea breeze providing what one of the competitors described as ‘champagne sailing’ on Saturday.

Thanks to all competitors, club members, volunteers, our sponsors Harken and Wildwind, and everybody else who helped to make this year's event another success. Special thanks to the many individuals and businesses who donated raffle prizes!


This year's race was won by Simon Northrop (again!) and Josh O'Brian. A race report and full results are available on the 2017 race page.
