Southampton Sailing Week

From 24th May 2017 until 29th May 2017

An action packed week to celebrate everything that is Sailing and Southampton!
Based in one of the world's top locations for sailing, the Solent and Southampton Waters which are home to world famous races, and Southampton Sailing week is here to celebrate all things sailing and encourage more people to enjoy the water.

With six days of sailing and water activities in and around Southampton waters and The Solent, come and join us for a celebration of Yacht Racing, Parade of Sail, Beat the Bank, Regatta Party and more!

The whole event will finish off with a Regatta Party on the Sunday night from 6pm in Oxford Street and Ocean Village Marina; keep an eye out for the wrist bands which will be on sale throughout the week.

MDL Marinas will be hosting special events at Shamrock Quay, Ocean Village Marina, Hythe Marina Village and Hamble Point Marina.
