Solent Mark Designations

SCRA publishes a list of over 160 Solent area marks, including the large majority of those that are commonly used. Each mark is described by a code comprising two characters - either two digits or one digit and one letter. The list is recommended for use by all clubs and race organisers where courses are given on the radio, and may be used for course boards if desired. The 2024 list is in the following file:
