Solent Cruising and Racing Association
The Solent Cruising and Racing Association (SCRA) was founded in 1895 with the objective to promote the interests of yacht cruising and racing in the Solent. The membership includes 70 clubs, 40 classes and over 500 individual members and is open to all who are interested.
Over 400 sailing events take place in the Solent every season and it is the job of the SCRA to coordinate these events, reduce clashes of major fixtures and to promote good liaison between the Yacht Clubs. The SCRA website, www.scra.org.uk, lists these events, both racing and cruising, and is continually updated from information given by the member clubs and classes. The SCRA owns and manages all the yellow Racing Marks in the Solent.
