IDOR 2020 – Get on Board with HASSRA!

2019 was very good year for both HASSRA boats with the mix of experienced, novice and first timers really working well together.

Check out the report from last year's event, and remember this year it could be you taking part!

2020's event dates are confirmed as 31st May - 5th June, so why not register your interest with our Team Manager to be part of the crew!

It is a great event and a fantastic experience, and the event is always from a Sunday to Friday in early June - see details below of what's involved for more information. You can submit the attached Expression of Interest or ask any questions by email to our Sailing Team ManagerDebbie Edyveane.

The deadline for applications for this year is Friday 13th March 2020.

HASSRA crew members of all abilities take part racing from Cowes on the Isle of Wight, with yachts chartered from Fairview Sailing at Port Hamble Marina, near Southampton.

It’s a week–long programme of inshore and offshore races, providing a fantastic opportunity to enjoy some exciting sailing and competitive racing.

First-time applications are particularly welcomed and any novices who are selected will receive instruction and guidance from the more experienced crew members.

Accom­moda­tion is on board the yachts so you will need your own sleeping bag, pillow, etc.

HASSRA will pay for the hire of the boat, plus all breakfasts and lunches.

You will need to pay for:

  • your evening meals
  • wet weather gear (costing around £35 to hire)
  • sailing gloves (which you will need to purchase)

Please note: Sea boots are no longer available to hire from Fairview Sailing.


  • Please let us know, in confidence, if you have any health or mobility problems
  • Annual leave must be agreed in advance with your line-manager (where applicable)
  • You must be a member of both HASSRA and CSSC to take part in this event.
