Wessex Heartbeat are pleased to be the 'Charity Partner' of Portsmouth Sailing Week 2022, organised by Rees Leisure and are inviting enthusiastic sailors to join them on board a Wessex Heartbeat branded Sunsail 41.0 Yacht.

Solent Cup: Wednesday 6th July

The day will begin with a light breakfast at the iconic Portsmouth Spinnaker Tower with breathtaking views, before heading down to the pontoon where the Wessex Heartbeat yacht will be waiting.

After a team brief, we will head out alongside the other yachts into the Solent to hoist the sails and get some practice in before the racing begins.  It will then be down to the teams new found skills out on the water to determine who will win.

All racing is under the guidance of a fully qualified Skipper and First Mate who will be there to teach you the ropes and to ensure the team have a safe and great experience.

Places are now available for Team Wessex Heartbeat (maximum 8 people) Crew at £340 per person (including all refreshments) but are limited and are on a first come, first served basis.  Book now, through Tina Richardson at Wessex Heartbeat.

Wessex Heartbeat is once again pleased to be the official charity partner for Sailing Week in Southampton and now, for Portsmouth. This will be our charity's 30th Anniversary year.  To have the opportunity to work with Rees Leisure, to raise awareness within Portsmouth's thriving business community of the valuable work we do to support people in the Wessex region and beyond living with cardiac conditions, is amazing.
