Solent Mark Designations

SCRA publishes a list of over 150 Solent area marks, including the large majority of those that are commonly used. Each mark is now described by a code comprising two characters - either two digits or one digit and one letter. The list is recommended for use by all clubs and race organisers where courses are given on the radio, and may be used for course boards if desired. Details of the 2021 list are in the following files:
