Zhik Poole Week 2018

Poole Week is in its 71st Year!

In 2018 we will again be offering great sailing and a chance for the family to enjoy one of the UK’s premier resorts.

Taking place Sunday 26th August - Friday 31st August 2018, Poole Week offers a great opportunity to experience some of the best sailing on the south coast.

Poole Week is an open event with racing over six days supporting a wide variety of classes, a mixture of racing formats in our beautiful harbour, and this year competitors will be able to experience the stunning new clubhouse.

We shall provide class starts for fleets with more than 12 boats so why not aim to get as many of your fellow class sailors together for a fabulous week of one design sailing?

For class fleets of 6-12 boats we will provide a start combined with other smaller fleets and maintain separate results for your class.

If you don’t think you can get 6 boats in your class together then you will not miss out as you will be included in an appropriate handicap fleet for your boat.

In short, our aim is to ensure that everyone gets a memorable week’s racing in magnificent Poole! In addition, the fun continues off the water with extensive social and family activity programmes.

Racing will be offered for:

  • Wayfarers

  • Lasers & Laser Radials

  • Flying Fifteens

  • Cornish Shrimpers

  •  X One Designs

  • Poole Dolphins

  • RS100, RS200 & RS400

  • Darts

  • Handicaps

If your class is not listed above you will be offered racing if 6 or more enter. Otherwise you will be included in an appropriate handicap fleet

We offer a  mixture of racing formats in our beautiful harbour. Some courses may involve marks in Poole Bay opposite the world renowned Bournemouth, Studland or Sandbanks Beaches.

You and your family will be warmly welcomed to Parkstone Yacht Club.There will be plenty to keep non-sailing members of the family entertained throughout the week, daily fun prizegiving, post-sailing entertainment, food and drink.

  • Daily drinks voucher

  • Supper on the first night

  • Daily raffle prizes at Prizegiving
