Langstone Harbour Race Weekend – An Overview
***There will be no LHRW in 2019. Locks SC are planning a weekend event, details TBC***
The 10th Langstone Harbour Race Weekend was held on Friday 24th – Sunday 26th August 2018 with a separate combined club charity event on Monday 27th August. Thank you to all the competitors for supporting the event and we hope you all enjoyed the racing. We hope our visitors from the the Wanderer Class Owners Association (WCOA), the UK Wayfarer Association (UKWO) and the Lightning 368 Class Association (LCA), also enjoyed their Championship events and had a safe journey home, especially our younger sailors from the Sea Cadets. It was a shame the the weather thwarted Sundays racing, but the breeze on Monday gave the local sailors a fantastic blast around the cans.
The event is hosted by three sailing clubs which share the waters of Langstone Harbour; Locks SC, Langstone SC and Tudor SC. The event invites dinghy sailors from all across the south coast and beyond to compete in the series of exciting races held within the harbour.
It’s not all about the racing! Each club takes turns to host a social event over the weekend and hopefully there will be something to suit everyone’s tastes.
