Weymouth Speed Week
Weymouth Speed Week is the oldest and longest-running speed sailing event in the world.
Held annually since 1972, it has challenged sailors of a wide variety of wind-powered craft to sail as fast as they can over a distance of 500m with their speed being recorded as the average speed over that distance.
Weymouth Speed Week 2019 starts on Saturday 5th October at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. Online entry opens on 28th August.
