HRSC dinghy sailors were out in force (as was the wind) on Saturday, with the youngest and newest sailing off the beach in oppies and Mirrors, and the more experienced (in ability and age) taking part in the Harbour Masters Pursuit race. Club members entered their Foxers, Tera, Wayfarer, Lasers, Picos, and a couple of Feva’s. The wind provided some challenging sailing, which tested sailors and boats alike, with the wayfarer almost sinking. In the slow handicap fleet, HRSC was dominant, with this class being won by Rob in his Foxer, second was William and Eleanor Yonge in Feva, followed...

On Wednesday the 1st of May, Hamble River Sailing Club organised the Bottle Pursuit, which is the traditional transition between the Early Bird Series and the A Series. Seventeen boats made their way into the Solent, where the conditions were as good as they could be, nice sunshine and a northerly breeze, around 10 knots. This unusual wind direction was a bit challenging for the Race Officers, as it forced setting a start line not far from the main Southampton channel with the Queen Victoria coming out as well as the usual Isle of Wight ferries. The first start at...

In very testing conditions – heavy driving rain and between 20 and 25 knots of wind – we held the Junior Warming Pan on Saturday 13th April.

Chris was supported by Jan and Elaine on Retriever. Rib drivers and crew did well and had plenty of practice with capsized boats. The beach crew were great and thanks to those that helped in the club –...

The weather Gods were not smiling for the Warming Pan, held for the 51st year at Hamble River Sailing Club on the 3rd weekend in March. Full marks then to the 62 boats that braved the frustrating conditions, unable to work hard enough even to get warm. But however trying it was for competitors and race team alike, even conditions such as these reward the skilful, and the final prize list was like a Who’s Who of sailing. On Saturday a large low centered over Southern Britain welcomed competitors with driving rain and 40 knots of wind. Seemingly miraculously, a...
