Racing and cruising yachts at Christchurch Sailing Club are about 6 to 12 metres in length, mostly lift keel or bilge keel due to draught limitations in Christchurch Harbour. There is an active racing programme of over 35 races organised from Easter to October. As well as series and trophy races, there are a number of special races which allow skippers to choose their own start time to maximise the tide. These races are often won by the slower boats. All racing is run on a Personal Handicap System which is intended to give all participating boats a chance.
New for this year RYA Day Skipper Theory course, see training page for this and all our courses.
Also organised is a full Rally programme which covers all tastes, ranging from visits to other local clubs, harbours, anchorages and longer trips to Cherbourg and Brittany, barbecues and family fun events.
Note: Cherbourg Marina offers the equivalent of a 20% discount off mooring charges, which includes electricity, also free showers to CSC members on production of their membership card.
