The Solent Forts Race is a long-distance event set in the Eastern Solent, with Hayling Island and Portsmouth to the north and the Isle of Wight to the west. Originally open to fast catamarans, the race is now open to all boats that satisfy the entry criteria and is part of the Allen Endurance Series.

Race format
The race comprises a number of legs radiating out from a gate (like a star), allowing the course configuration and length to be adjusted according to the conditions prevailing on the day (see example course diagram below). The race gets its name from the Napoleonic Channel Forts that comprise two of the marks of the course.

This race has a unique ‘time out’ feature that allows boats to take an optional 30-minute break during the race. This time may be used for a comfort break or for tactical purposes.

The entry fee includes entry to the Club’s Band-on-the-Beach event on Saturday night, including a hot meal. A bar will also be available at this event.

The venue
The venue will be Hayling Ferry Sailing Club, located at the entrance to Langstone Harbour on the southwestern corner of Hayling Island. The Club is small and friendly with one of the best locations and sailing areas on the south coast. The Clubhouse is positioned amongst the sand dunes on the southwest corner of Hayling Island, within a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
