Racing takes place on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday afternoons. We hold two races, the first starting at 2.00 pm with the second at 15:30. Our racing calendar is split into 8 series with many other one day events, spread throughout the year.
Most races are on 'handicap' to balance the skills between experienced helms and newcomers.
Our racing calendar consists of:
- Early series
- Lister Series
- Early Summer series
- Divisional Series
- Mid Summer series
- Pursuit series
- Late series
- Bank holiday series (On Bank Holiday Mondays)
In addition there are a number of one day events. These are sailed over 3 races with the first start at 11.00 am. There is a trophy awarded at the end of the day. Events consist of:
- Charity Race: Sailed in aid of the RNLI. There is an entry fee for this event.
- Felgate Cup: No entry fee.
- Bundy Cup: No entry fee. Sailed over one race starting at 2.00 pm. This is our Marathon race, which takes in our entire reach of the Thames.

Throughout the year we have a number of open events where sailors from other clubs come and join us. Events include:
- Middle Thames Trophy: Race event between Staines SC, Aquarius SC, Hampton SC and Desborough SC. Venue alternates between the clubs.
