The heart of cruiser racing in Lymington is the Thursday Evening Racing Series which runs from the end of April to the end of September, when we race under both IRC and the Lymington Handicap system. Boats range in length from under 6 metres to above 12 metres with every variety in between, including a strong fleet of classic boats. Typically, there are some 90 – 100 boats out racing on Thursday evenings split into 6 classes.

Prizegiving in our bar and restaurant after each evening’s racing is well attended and great fun! The Royal Lymington Yacht Club extends a warm welcome to owners and crews of competing yachts and invites them to become temporary members for each Thursday Night race event.

Early Series: 29 April - 24 June 2021
Late Series: 1 July - 26 August 2021
Late Late Series: 2 - 23 September 2021

Participants shall be guided by the RYA document Sailing & Racing in Mixed Households and by the control measures outlined in the Royal Lymington Yacht Club risk assessments for Dinghy Sailing and SUP, Pontoon and On The Water Activities and Clubhouse Operations.
