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 sailing courses, race events and yacht charter options here in the UK in 2021 We offer RYA training courses through our sister company Global Yacht Training as well as Race Training. We take part in offshore and inshore racing ranging from the RTI race to RORC events. We also have a variety of yachts available for skippered charters just for the day, weekend or longer.

Skippered Yacht Charter

We offer professionally maintained and skippered yachts for charter in the Solent and beyond. So if you want to cruise with your family or friends and discover the gems of the UK's south coast then choose Global Yacht Racing. We can arrange berthing and additional activities along with lunch bookings at some of the top eateries on the south coast. Or select one of our race-ready yachts for your race event.

Race Training

Improve your race skills with race training provided by experienced race skippers. Global Yacht Racing offer a variety of courses from weekends to intensive 5-day courses. Improve your race drills, spinnaker handling or focus on your race starts. We can tailor a training programme that meets your requirements and will get you race-ready.

UK Race Events

Global Yacht Racing Ltd has been offering sailing and racing on great yachts around the world since 2004.

In response to the current pandemic and the desire from our clients to stay closer to home to avoid the fast-changing world of travel restrictions we are focus on expanding our race events in UK waters. Starting with the Spring Series here in the Solent our events calendar will include all RORC races as well as the iconic Fastnet race.

With inshore regattas and offshore race events there is something to suit everyone. From the beginner looking to experience the sport for the first time to those of you looking to challenge yourselves in the new-look Fastnet race.

Global Yacht Racing will guide you through the pre-race training, race qualifiers and the final race event.

RYA Training

We offer a full range of RYA courses, both theory and practical, from Competent Crew to Yachtmaster. Alternatively, we can tailor a training programme to suit your requirements based upon existing experience and qualifications.


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.

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