Offshore Sailing

For novices to elite sailors, and from training to cruising and racing, yachting opportunities are available to all in the Service.


Royal Navy Offshore Sailing

We welcome all abilities of RN and RM serving and reserve personnel, from novices to elite offshore sailors while a busy season through the year enables multiple events for all levels of ability. With opportunities to participate in high profile races such as, the Fastnet Race, Cowes Week and Cork Week, the team also has an excellent reputation in retaining the Inter-Services title at the Services Offshore Regatta.

We currently have a J109 (the Jolly Jack Tar) based in Portsmouth and a J80 (the Jackaroo) in Plymouth. Operating from branches across the country, we can also provide opportunities for offshore cruising.

Going further still, Adventurous Training and offshore sailing qualifications are provided by the Joint Service Adventure Sail Training Centre.

Get Involved

Offering opportunities for all levels of abilities, no matter what your level of experience, we organise training sessions and weekends as well as events, providing all the kit and equipment needed.

With foreign tours that include events against other Navies too, the more experienced and improved sailors can progress to represent the RN at national, international and Inter-Services competitions.
