Now in its eighth year, the Solent Forts Race is a long-distance open-water event set in the Eastern Solent, with Hayling Island and Portsmouth to the north and the Isle of Wight to the west. It is one of the founding events of the Allen Endurance Series. It is open to monohulls and multihulls that meet the entry criteria.

The event comprises a number of legs radiating out from a gate (like a star) to predefined marks. This format is very flexible and allows the Race Officer to set a course according to the conditions prevailing on the day to give a range of points of sail and a race duration of approximately 5 hours. The entry will be split into 2 fleets based on handicap; the Blue Fleet will sail a shorter course than the Orange Fleet.

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

This year’s Solent Forts Race will take place on Sunday 9th June. There will be a Practice Race on Saturday 8th along with a party in the evening featuring live music.

The Venue will be Hayling Ferry Sailing Club (www.hfsc.org.uk), located at the entrance to Langstone Harbour on the south-western corner of Hayling Island. The Club is small and friendly with one of the best locations and sailing areas on the south coast.
