  • Garmin Hamble Winter Series: Race report week 5

    12 Nov 2015
    Race Report Week 5Competitors in the Garmin Hamble Winter Series on Sunday could have been forgiven for thinking that the weather gods would have their revenge for the balmy first half of the 2016 event. After a week’s break, the event resumed this weekend, along with an ominous forecast that predicted a building and veering southerly breeze. And so it was with cautious sail plans that many boats ventured out to the racing area, where ...more

    Garmin Hamble Winter Series: Race Report Week 4 Coming at the end of a week of pessimistic weather forecasts, it was little surprise to both competitors and the race committee that the scheduled start time of the fourth race day of the Garmin Hamble Winter Series was marked by a flat calm, two hoots and an AP. But it was a day of surprises – firstly that the end of British Summer Time would be ...more

    Garmin Hamble Winter Series: Race Report Week 2As October progresses, you could be forgiven for thinking that the thermals should be dug out – but the second weekend of the Garmin Hamble Winter Series, which this week incorporated the Doyle Sails Hamble One-Design Championships and the Sailing Networks Big Boat Championships, hosted some unseasonal sunshine and warmth to accompany the racing. Racing on Sunday, the Garmin Hamble Winter Series fleet experienced some close racing in ...more

  • Hamble River SC Wednesday Night Series - Series B Race 8 -2nd September 2015

    4 Sep 2015
    Series B Race 8The last night of the B series, and indeed of the entire Wednesday night series did not look good. A massive ebb tide, 6 knots of breeze and all weather forecasts predicting a 100% probability of rain from about 15.00 to 21.00. Obviously this would deter all but the hardened and RO Lis Robinson was resigned to a strong likelihood of postponing and then abandoning the race for the brave few. When ...more

  • Hamble River SC Wednesday Night Series - Series B Race 4 -29th July 2015

    3 Aug 2015
    Series B Race 4 Although being nearly half way through, the B series kicked off with firstly too much wind and, then too little so it seems as if it has barely started. This week the rain went through late afternoon whilst competitors were on their way out to their boats and, although various ominous black clouds skirted Southampton Water, the fleet endured little more than a light shower on the beat home. The wind ...more
