LTSC Cruiser Racing Series

LTSC has a small, but enthusiastic Cruiser Racing group and hosts a series of events throughout the summer months.


Racing is held in the Solent and Christchurch Bay, with a mixture of round the cans and passage races.


The Cruiser Racing Series starts in May with the Hamble Scramble, a long standing LTSC event which these days sees the clubs Cruiser Racing and Cruising fleets meet up in Hamble for dinner at one of the Yacht Clubs or local pubs.

Taking Part

Racing is run on an informal basis, with simple sailing instructions and is an excellent way to start racing in a low stress environment. Crews come in all shapes and sizes, with double handed and family crews amongst the entrants. Entry is open to all types of keel boats and subject to some very simple safety rules. For 2023 all yachts will need to have a YTC handicap for the series. RYA YTC Rating System; YTC 2023 Policies and Procedures details on this link: RYA YTC Cruiser Racer Handicap System

There are no entry fees for LTSC or RLymYC members and only a notional entry for other competitors. There are eleven individual races throughout the series, with prizes awarded for the overall series at an annual prize giving.
