For many, Hayling Island is considered the spiritual home of windsurfing. The Round Hayling Island Challenge (sponsored by the SUP Company) is a great celebration of the sport first staged in 1980, the 14 miles circumnavigation can take anything from 60 minutes to 6 hours.

Open to Windsurfers, SUPs and a number of canoe classes (OC1, OC2, OC6) the aim is to appeal to both experienced competitors and less experienced riders. This iconic event gives entrants the opportunity to challenge themselves to the Starboard Course the full 14-mile circumnavigation or the Red Paddle Co 9 mile course which runs along the more sheltered side of the island.

Competitors face a number of challenges in this historic race, including navigating under the road bridge that links the island to the mainland and through the remnants of the old railway bridge as well as through the narrow entrance to Langstone Harbour before the final challenge across the seafront into Chichester Harbour to complete the circumnavigation at HISC.

Perfectly situated at the entrance of Chichester Harbour, HISC not only offers some great views over the harbour but also breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as overnight accommodation for both entrants and spectators.

Entry opens on Friday 1st March 2019
