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.
