Racing at Swarkestone Sailing Club

Swarkestone’s size, shape, islands and trees makes for great tactical racing on Wednesday evenings and Sundays.

Swarkestone plays host to a wide range of racing events throughout the club calendar. We even race on Boxing day! For our larger classes there are annual open meetings, and for our Juniors and Sailability sailors regular traveller meetings. These range from class starts, pursuit starts or menagerie starts.
Some races are just for novices, others are just for our champions. There are also trophies to be won by Juniors, Sailability and Ladies. Plus a mixture of short races, long races and match racing. Check out our busy calendar for more details.
