The R19 Racing fleet can be seen out in the harbour on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Also they will be out Racing on Sunday Morning for the Winter Series as well as Single handed on a Friday Night early summer and The Sunset Series at the end of the Summer to make the most of the evenings before it becomes too dark. Throughout the season there are also various Trophy races to as far as Studland and back and even to Bournemouth Pier.

The R19 were first produced in 1979 designed by the Late Richard Roscoe. A 21’ one design lifting keel boat with a small cabin suitable for sailing around Poole harbour. All the R19 boats are moored at the end of the Club down below the Race Hut and are a very active and competitive group of sailors of varying experience.

If you are reading this and think this may be for you, please contact us through our email address, Facebook, or even come and find us down on the pontoon on Racing nights. We also have a notice board in the club where sometimes the need for crew is advertised. We are always able to find someone that you can go out and have a sail with and experience the thrills and spills of an R19.
