Windward Sailing prides itself on its racing record and over the last 24 years we have enjoyed numerous successes! Our CM60, Venomous, has won the Royal Ocean Racing Club's offshore series and Incisor, our Corby 45 is still winning races against tough competition.  

You have the unique opportunity of not only sailing on state of the art raceboats, but also racing competitively.  You can start with a training weekend or jump straight in with an offshore challenge such as the Fastnet or the ARC.  Our training in big boat racing techniques is second to none and is carried out by some of the most experienced skippers and crew from the UK.

ARC 2016

Having enjoyed competing in 8 hugely successful ARCs since 2003 we are planning again to take part once again on November 20th 2016. Join us for the adventure of a lifetime as we take a crew of like minded individuals like yourself, with mixed sailing abilities and experience, who are looking for a new challenge.

Heading south from Gran Canaria to ride the trade winds west towards the Caribbean means the ARC is a predominantly downwind race.The voyage will be undertaken on our race yacht  and with her design and full compliment of sails there should be no problems with making the most of the wind- We'll be on the beach in St. Lucia in just 12-14 days!

For the last 24 years Windward Sailing has successfully competed in numerous offshore races including the famous Fastnet race, the Three Peaks Challenge, Round Britain & Ireland and of course the ARC itself. We always provide a core of passionate and professional crew who know the yacht inside out and therefore can spend their time teaching, showing and encouraging crew members how to get the best from the boat and to shape the crew into a winning team. Full training will be provided.
