Harken D-Zero 5th Anniversary UK Open and National Championships 2019 – Entry now open

Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy
21-23 June 2019



You don’t want to miss this. It’s going to be big. It’s going to be epic.

Based at the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA), host of the 2012 Olympic Games regatta, the 2019 Harken D-Zero UK National and Open Championships is shaping up to be the best one yet. What are we proposing?

The racing

  • 8 races over 3 days with racing both inside Portland Harbour and outside in Weymouth Bay. The harbour is 2 miles square with ample room for full-size championship courses and no tide. The bay offers some of the best conditions in the country with just superb waves.
  • In addition to the Olympic regatta, the WPNSA hosts several major championships a year so expect race management second-to-none.
  • As we will be welcoming our D-Zero friends from the continent we will be competing for both the Open Championship and the UK National Championship.
  • A number of charter boats may be available. Please contact David Valentine at if interested.


We’re going to be organising loads of stuff to keep you amused while we’re off the water. Some of the highlights are:

  •  Friday night meal at the Balti Island ( ). We’ve booked out the entire restaurant for the evening. This is in easy walking distance of the WPNSA with the added benefit of being only a few steps away from the legendary Cove Inn.
  • Saturday night BBQ at the WPNSA included within the entry fee.
  • Buddy system with prizes.
  • D-Zero fantasy league and other on-shore tomfoolery. With the number of boats expected from north of the border I’m sure we can organise some England v Scotland v Rest of the World games (OK, darts).
  • Plus there’s loads for the non-sailing members of the family to do –
  • Free parking on-site at WPNSA.


There are loads of options:
