SWSA announces cruiser racing series

This season the Southampton Water Sailing Association is organising a record 27 events for sailing cruisers. These will consist of round the cans and passage races, all of which are open to entrants from member clubs or individual RYA members.

As from 30 April, the SWSA is also staging a new fortnightly evening series on Southampton Water. Always coinciding with high water, the races will ideally suit yachts operating from tide restricted moorings.

This year the SWSA celebrates its 55th Anniversary. Founded in the summer of 1953 as the result of a challenge race between Southampton and Eling sailing clubs, the association has since grown to 18 clubs around Southampton Water. It now exists to protect members interests and to promote friendly racing.
