Pin Mill Barge Race

Follow the racing barges for a great spectator day

The highlight of the sailing season, watch as a dozen barges sail together in friendly but serious competition. 

The start is always very exciting with these large vessels being manoeuvred in close quarters trying to gain the best position. A camera is vital! Join one of our barges as it follows the racing fleet – a mixture of motoring to keep up with fast racing barges and to get the best photo positions, and setting some sail where practical.

The race course is determined on the day by the committee, but typically the outer mark may be:-
