Tempest World Championships
Portsmouth Sailing Club are proud to be hosting the 2022 Tempest World Championships between 19th and 25th August 2023
International Tempest Class is a 22Ft, 2-man, high performance keelboat with trapeze and spinnaker. It was designed in the 1960's by Ian Proctor to become an Olympic Class, the replacement for the International Star. Tempest passed Olympic Trials in 1965 and was selected as an Olympic Class in 1968. It competed in the 72 & 76 Games and was to also compete in the "boycotted" 1980 games but didn't compete. It became deselected as an Olympic Class in the late 70's.
Today the Class has retained its International Status it held during its Olympic days. It holds Annual World Championships mainly within Europe attracting competitors from mainly Europe but also UK and USA. Also it holds National Championships in USA, AUS, AUT, SUI, FRA, GER and GBR. In 2019 a bid was put forward to hold a UK World Championship in Portsmouth, hosted by Portsmouth Sailing Club with the assistance of Hornet Services Sailing Club. This was originally set for 2022 but at the request of ITA (International Tempest Association) was postponed to 19-25 August 2023. This bid was approved.
Portsmouth Sailing Club was founded in 1920 and local artist W. L. Wyllie, famed for his maritime paintings and etchings was amongst the founding members. The clubhouse, a Grade 2 listed building, was probably constructed in the early 1800s and many of the timber beams visible inside are from ships broken up at that time. Previously serving as a Consulate to thirteen different nations and somewhat less illustriously as a French onion store this wonderful building now lies at the heart of a vibrant and active club membership. The club is managed by its members for the members; this creates a friendly atmosphere and strong community spirit that supports a varied social programme and extremely accessible range of activities on the water.
