What the Girls Had to Say

"I've really enjoyed sailing with GFS and have learnt so much - it's been brilliant to have the opportunity to move around the boat learning the different positions and has also been wonderful to meet so many amazing women. I'm sure I'll be back at some point for some more racing or training." Nia, Hamble Winter Series, 2015

 

Starts: 19:30 Friday at Girls for Sail Office in Shepards Wharf Marina 

Finishes: approximately 16:00 Sunday

About The Event

Blow away the cobwebs and come and race with us for the premier early season event: the Warsash Spring Series 2018. 

For 2018, we'll be doing 6 weekends of training and racing!

The perfect training package, this weekend package includes a day of race training on the Saturday and the Sunday race, where you'll get to hone your newly acquired skills.

Suitable for all levels, these weekends are the perfect introduction to racing, a great way to clock up some miles, and a fantastic way to get away for the weekend with a fabulous bunch of fe-sails!

 

The boat

We mostly coach on yachts of between 37 and 41ft. Our yachts have been specifically chosen as they are easy to handle, great for learning! There is no denying us girls sometimes don't have the physical strength of the boys but with our technical ability and a well-chosen yacht we can do just as well. You will usually find yourself aboard an Élan 37, Jeanneau 37 or a Beneteau 40.7. All of your time will be spent living as crew-mates on your yacht.  Most of the yachts have 9/10 berths with 3 cabins and a saloon so the boats will normally have 2 persons in each cabin i.e. 6 - this is always the case for an RYA course, MAX 6 persons on-board. On some events e.g. races we use the saloon which can sleep an additional 2-4 person.

About Cowes 

Cowes is widely credited as being the birthplace of UK yachting, seeing hundreds of 'yachties' descend every year on the seaside town and swelling its resident population multifold!

With a wealth of activities on and off the water and a year-round mild, sunny climate the island attracts loyal visitors and second home owners alike all year round but especially during the spring and summer months when the world class sailing conditions attract professional sailors from around the world to take part in famous regattas and races - as well as thousands of spectators who gather shoreside to watch the dramas unfold.

Easily reached by high speed passenger ferry, car ferry or even hovercraft (the island has the last remaining hovercraft service in the world) from Lymington, Southampton or Portsmouth on the mainland, the island is the perfect destination for young and old alike with plenty to see, eat and do.
