Performance Yacht Racing

Yacht Racing for Individuals

At Performance Yacht Racing we believe that yacht racing is for everyone, not just the super rich! We enter our yachts into well established race events and regattas around the world, in the UK, Med, Caribbean and Australia. We take individuals and groups of like minded people, people like you and we forge a winning team through professional race training. Then we go out, race hard and more often than not get on the podium!

Race Yacht Charter

Additionally we offer professionally maintained race winning performance yachts for established teams to charter around the world. We look after the logistic for you ensuring when you rock up you can race.

Yachtmaster Training

Our Race Skipper Traineeship is a unique Yacht Skipper Training course designed to offer great sail training, race training and race management skills, hands on yacht maintenance skills and marine industry work experience all in one great package.

About the Team

Christian Reynolds and Andy Middleton have been running yacht charter businesses collectively for over 25 years. Together they setup Performance Yacht Racing in 2013 bringing together the experience they each gained from their previous companies Global Yacht Racing and Performance Yacht Charter.

Andy Middleton is an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor Trainer and Ocean Examiner who has a passion for racing and training. Christian Reynolds is an Ocean Yachtmaster with a lifetime of dinghy and yacht racing experience. Together they prove a formidable team, bringing yacht racing to everyone from relative novices to experienced teams.

They believe that yacht racing should be safe, fun and non elitist and Performance Yacht Racing offers worldwide yacht racing to all. From their UK base, to the Mediterranean, Caribbean and even the Sydney to Hobart race, they offer sailing experiences for all.

They are both individually regular visitors to the podium of Regattas all around the World, bringing together individuals from many different backgrounds and creating a high performance team capable of winning prizes.

Performance Yacht Training is the training side of their business and as a recognised RYA Training Centre, they provide 4, 6 and 10 month Yachtmaster programs giving students a real in depth look at the commercial side of yachting, access to many contacts within the industry and of course significant mileage and experience before candidates sit their Yachtmaster exam.

What their Clients are Saying

"Having never done anything like this before I wasn’t sure what to expect but I can safely say I loved every minute.

Just wanted to send you a quick email to say how much I enjoyed the few days training and this weekends Cowes racing on Saturday and Sunday.

Thank you for the sailing experience, knowledge and suitably filthy jokes! I look forward to seeing/sailing with you all again in the not too distant future.


Best wishes Chris"

Chris Williams - Cowes Week

"I would recommend anyone that wants a life changing experience to try offshore yacht racing with Global Yacht Racing. 

Be prepared for the unpleasant cold moments, but also to have your breath taken away with nature’s brilliance which one would never see on land."

Dawn Mottram - Fastnet Race

"I thoroughly enjoyed both the sailing and the social side of the experience and I was particularly impressed with the way the whole 'Global Family' welcomed me as a newcomer."

Mike Riley - Hobart and Cowes Week crew
