Solent Race Marks

by Kristen Lloyd

Have you heard of the Solent Cruising & Racing Association (SCRA)?  Together with Cowes Week, the SCRA has been responsible for the laying of all the yellow race marks for the racing season and this is where we need your help. Without the yellow race marks racing in the Solent would be very difficult as navigation marks are becoming increasingly off limits. By joining the SCRA as an individual member you would be helping support yacht racing in the Solent. Membership is just £25, and if you race four weekends per year that would be just a few pennies per rounding! The little yellow race marks need YOU!

Join the SCRA here.


Would you like to see your name or company name on one of the Solent racing marks? Buoys could be a dedication to a loved one, a birthday gift or a company promotion that will be seen by thousands of boats and crews out on the Solent for the racing season.There are a small selection of marks available for sponsorship for the 2021 season, with prices starting at £1300 + VAT. We will shortly begin a campaign to promote our sponsors who's support enables racing on the Solent. 

If you are interested in discussing race mark sponsorship please contact Kristen Lloyd at or 01983 248001.
