At Global Yacht Racing we believe that the sport of Sailing is for everyone!

With more of us looking to stay in the UK in the coming season we are expanding our yacht charter options here in the UK in 2021.

We offer professionally maintained and skippered yachts for charter in the Solent and beyond. Whether you are looking for a race-ready yacht for an event or simply looking to charter for a relaxing holiday or short break then we can arrange a full charter package to suit you.


Escape the crowds and live life at a different pace aboard a yacht of your own – just for a week!

If you are a yacht owner looking to offer your yacht for charter we offer a full yacht management service.

RTI Yacht Charter

Global Yacht Racing put together a superb charter for the RTI. Our reunion of experienced Round The World Clipper sailors is now bitten by the thrill of fast-paced round-the-cans racing!

Race Training

As yacht owners ourselves and keen RORC racers we wanted to hone our race skills. A series of highly focused weekends raised our skill level in all areas and prepared us for a full season of racing. Our results proved the training from experienced sailors was well worthwhile.

Rolex Fastnet 2019

An extremely professional campaign which has spurred me into more offshore sailing. I am now looking ahead to the Rolex Middle Sea Race!
