The biggest dinghy and keelboat regatta in the UK is back! Starting on Monday 19thAugust Hayling Island Sailing Club will again host this enormous event which this year celebrates the centenary of the Chichester Harbour Federation and the 60th year of this race week.

Hugely popular within the clubs of Chichester Harbour, the event last year drew racers from nearly 50 clubs all over the UK. Being one of only four RYA Coastal Centres of Excellence in the UK, HISC offers top class racing; four separate race teams will manage an anticipated 400 boats with 20 separate fleet starts - ranging from demon Optimist juniors to former Olympians racing keelboats in Hayling Bay.

There will be plenty of social events to keep around 600 competitors occupied and to recognise the anniversary of this event, once known as Fed Week.

The Sailing Secretary of the Federation, Pam Marrs, said "This is the highlight event of the year in the Harbour and is a great opportunity for the Fed to promote its ethos of encouraging Harbour users to get out on the water in our centenary year".

Early Bird Entry is now open on the event website so sign up and secure your place for a fantastic week's racing in stunning surroundings.
