British Keelboat League at HISC 12-13 June

Hayling Island Sailing Club will be hosting the British Keelboat League (BKL) over the weekend of the 12 and 13 June in a fleet of RS21s racing in Chichester Harbour.

With great balcony views, we hope that this will act as an amazing sea event that can be enjoyed by sailors and those watching from the shore.

Twelve teams are expected to take part with four from HISC.

Racing on Saturday 12 June is scheduled from 10:27 hrs and for Sunday 13 June from 09:27 hrs.

The British Keelboat League, established in 2016, was introduced with the aim of increasing participation in keelboat racing across the United Kingdom. This is delivered through the concept of concentrated inter-club team sailing, which is highly successful in other parts of Europe and across North America.

Sailors compete representing their club in a series of short sprint races against teams from other clubs in their region in a qualifying round of weekend racing. The finest teams from each region then battle it out in a national final to be crowned the British Keelboat League champions.
