Cruiser Start at Mersea Week © Mersea Week


Mersea Week is a sailing regatta organised jointly by West Mersea Yacht Club and Dabchicks Sailing Club on Mersea Island.


Those of you who have sailed with us before will know that the secluded waters around Mersea Island provide near perfect conditions for our expert race team to run this exciting and very popular event. Those yet to join us, check out our website,

There will be daily starts for three PY dinghy classes, IRC sportsboats, IRC cruisers, Sonata One designs, locally handicapped and white sail cruisers, classic historic sailing craft and yachts including smacks and fisherman's open boats.


Once back on dry land, you can relax on the Yacht Club lawn with your favourite tipple. Whilst enjoying the stunning views, you will then be entertained by our local musicians with a sea shanty or two. Prizes will be presented daily and overall.

We welcome visiting yachts, yachtsmen and women, dinghies and crew and will provide yachts with a free mooring for the week.
