On the 1st & 2nd of June the Dubarry Women’s Open Keelboat Championship returns to the Solent. This fantastic event is run by a group of dedicated female volunteers, all of whom are passionate about sailing and supporting women in the sport.

Hosted by the Hamble River Sailing Club, WOKC is always a fun weekend with superb racing in the Solent and the famous Frocks and Flip Flops Party on the Saturday evening which shouldn’t be missed!

Dubarry continue to be the headline sponsors of the Women’s Open Keelboat Championship, supporting the event year in year out.

If you want to get a crew together and join in the racing, LV Yachting have several charter options available.
