National Windsurf Festival, personal watercraft and Uffa Fox

This week, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and Shelley Jory-Leigh look ahead to the National Windsurfing Festival taking place on Hayling Island this weekend.

And they talk to a competitor ahead of the Round-the-Island Rally in aid of Help For Heroes.

Also, we go behind the scenes at Christchurch Sailing Club and look at Uffa Fox’s airborne lifeboat.

We catch up with the Southampton University students and their solar powered boat "Tarka II", and take a trip on a Zapcat.

Plus the detailed weekend sailing forecast.
