Hamble Winter Series 2017

We’re delighted to support marine activities wherever we can and can’t wait to award a total of 15 prizes in the 37th Hamble Winter Series. The series is well underway and continues until December this year. It’s a popular, competitive and fun event, based in the central Solent and organised by the Hamble River Sailing Club. It attracts in the region of 150 entries every year with well over 1,000 sailors expected to take part, many of whom enjoy berths at one of our three Hamble marinas.

The racing started on the 6th October with teams racing in IRC Classes and One Designs. The action-packed programme features the IRC Autumn Championship, the Performance 40 Series, the Hamble Big Boat Championship, the Hamble One Design Championship, and J/70 World Qualifiers.

On Sunday 28th October, we’ll be awarding five vouchers for free hull scrubs for those coming in first, five 50%-off scrub vouchers for those coming in second, and five bottles of wines for those placing third in classes 0-4.
