Yacht Racing

The Yacht Racing fleets race regularly on Monday evenings throughout the season. We usually have a fleet of about 10 to12 yachts racing in Classes 1 and 2 combined, and about 2 or 3 in Class 3. Boats vary between 33' and 20'.


  • Class 1 - Pennant 1 - Boats having a current VPRS of 0.830 or above.

  • Class 2 - Pennant 2 - Boats having a current VPRS below 0.830. (N.B. Class 1 and 2 race together on same course)

  • Class 3 - Pennant 3 - Gentleman’s class for any Boat with a current VPRS but will not fly a spinnaker or similar un-stayed sail.

We welcome entries from any boat owners in the Harbour, particularly those from other Clubs. We also help organise Open Regattas, Weekend Racing through Poole Yacht Racing Association (PYRA) plus the Poole Spring and Winter Series. Contact the Club Office for more details about series racing but also watch the Major Events page for notices of forthcoming regattas.
