Forts Race – Whitstable

The 15/16th September is the long distance catamaran event at Whitstable, now in its 17th year this race is designed to test catamaran racing skills, attracting top national helms as well as experienced club racers and international entries.

Whitstable is one of the few sailing clubs to be located in a town centre, which means there are so many facilities close by to the club (chandlery, restaurants, pubs, chip shop, newsagents, hotels, B&Bs, and other shops for the non-sailing members of the visiting parties!).

Whilst space is limited for car parking sailing is the priority, and the club will do everything they can to make sure people can get to the club, and get out on the water with minimum of fuss! 

The club will make boat and trailor parking a priority, and clear a section of the beach especially for the event, so boats will have the space to rig and launch. They will also make space available for trailer parking, if the boats cannot be stored on their trailers, and this is close to the club (boats and launching are the priority for the beach).

Further details NOR / SI can be found on the events page of this web site.
