“I have an ordinary cruising boat but I can still take part in quality racing.”

Attend our Introduction To Cruiser Racing Seminar

By attending our seminar you will gain a basic understanding of what you need to know to race your cruiser, how CCRC runs its races and a whole lot more. It will also allay any misconceptions you may have (you don’t need a performance yacht, nor a crew lined up on the rail or a gorilla at the winch!).

It is free to come along so find out more here, and then book your place now.

Take part in CCRC’s first weekend races of 2020

“We had never raced before but had great support and now enjoy the competitive challenge.”

Attending our seminar will provide you with the chance to experience a CCRC race in a number of ways.

  • You could crew on one of our members’ yacht’s (space permitting) on the Saturday or Sunday
  • You could crew on one of our members’ yachts (space permitting) on one day and race your own yacht as a guest entry on the other say
  • You could simply participate in a race as a guest yacht on either day

See the details of the seminar here.

“I am not interested in winning trophies… It is all about having a good day out on the water and the racing gives a focus for that.”

Join any race as a Guest Boat

We welcome guest yachts wishing to experience a race with the CCRC. You don’t even need to get a handicap as we will allocate you one from the RYA NHC list for your particular yacht class.

Find out more here.

Join our Crew Register

We have members who are not yacht owners who regularly crew for other members and we also have a Crew Register for those interested in crewing from time to time.

Find out more here.

Join us for our Cross-Channel Event

Race or cruise across the Channel – even if you have never crossed before. CCRC and Hayling Islands Sailing Club are jointly organising a race and an accompanied cruise across along with briefing and guidance.
