Hayling Island Sailing Club (HISC) will be organizing its yearly Perisher Pursuit Race together with a Youth Pursuit Race on Saturday 15th February 2014.

This popular event is open to all dinghy classes and last year attracted around 70 entries including good numbers of RS200s, Solos, 29ers, 420s, Flying 15s and Merlin Rockets amongst a widespread variety of classes. The full length pursuit race is held within Chichester Harbour and this year will feature a Youth Pursuit Race alongside.

The 2013 winners of the event were HISC members Ben and Roz McGrane in a Merlin Rocket.

The HISC Perisher Pursuit Race takes its name from the Pompey Perisher event which was started by Portsmouth Sailing Club in 1970 to commemorate the club’s 50th Anniversary and ran until 2002; HISC ran their first Perisher event in HISC website
