For many, Hayling Island is considered the spiritual home of board sports. The Round Hayling Island Challenge (Sponsored by Rooster, Salcombe Gin & Sandy Point Watersports) is a great celebration for all crafts taking part. The 14 mile circumnavigation can take anything from 40 minutes to 4 hours.

Open to Wingfoilers, Windsurfers, SUP's, Rowers and Outriggers (OC1, OC2, OC6) the aim is to appeal both experienced and less experienced competitors. This iconic event gives entrants the opportunity to challenge themselves to a full 14 mile circumnavigation with the comfort of having safety cover on hand at all times.

Competitors face several 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 Challenge at HISC.

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

There will be live music as you come off the water, followed by a BBQ dinner and a DJ set to keep the festivities going into the evening.

Enter early for an early bird discount which is available until 30th June at midnight.
