The leading annual conference for the business of sailing and yacht racing is currently scheduled to take place on November 23-24 in Portsmouth, UK.

The Yacht Racing Forum organising team is following the current global situation with great attention, and extends its sincerest thoughts to those directly affected by the pandemic.

We hope that the situation will stabilize as soon as possible and we are not considering postponing the event for the time being. Should this be the case, confirmed partnerships for 2020, as well as early registrations would automatically be assigned to the new event.

We are all facing a complicated period but we strongly believe that we need to plan for the future, make projects, invest. The Yacht Racing Forum is a B2B event. Its purpose is to bring people together and to promote business and our sport. This is precisely what the yacht racing industry - and everyone else - will need when we finally come out of this dramatic situation and the reason why we believe that hosting the Forum in November 2020 is important for the global yacht racing industry.

We will communicate our final decision, with our partners at Portsmouth Harbour Marine, in mid-June, based on the recommendations of the relevant medical authorities.

The 13th edition of the Forum will once again provide a unique opportunity to network, debate the future of the sport and make business.

  • The sports' leading personalities will be present on stage to share their views.
  • Sailing events, Yacht clubs and Federations will grab the opportunity to promote their venue and the events they organise.
  • The sports' leading brands will exhibit their latest innovations.

Don't miss the opportunity: Exhibition space is limited!

We accept early registrations. Our Early Bird rate will be valid for the top 80 registrants. We also offer a 20% discount on all our partnership packages until April 30, valid for a duration of two years.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Yacht Racing Forum in Portsmouth!
