Yacht Racing Forum confirmed as coming to Portsmouth Harbour in 2020

The Yacht Racing Forum has announced that Portsmouth Harbour has been chosen to host its 2020 international racing conference, much to the delight of the local marine businesses and sailing community.

The annual event draws international delegates and provides a stimulating forum for discussing challenges facing the marine industry.

Mark Bowden, chief executive, Portsmouth Harbour Marine, is thrilled by the news. “We’ve been lobbying for this conference for a few months. It’ll bring together a dynamic group of marine personalities, including professional sailors, boat builders and many others. We’ll be developing plans in the coming weeks and will announce the venue and confirm dates shortly. This is a real win for us, and Portsmouth and Gosport Councils.”
