  • Hamble River SC, Wedensday Night - A Series Race 2

    25 May 2016
    . A Series Race 2. “Wet, wet, wet” are the words that come to mind for the second race of the Wednesday night A Series. The forecast was for a north-westerly wind at 7pm, but as the committee boat set off in the rain, the wind stubbornly stayed in the south west. There was much deliberation as to what to do, but in the end the start line was laid for the wind as it ...more

    Wednesday 11 May. A beautiful sunny evening heralded the first Series A race for Hamble River Sailing Club, and the first 2016 River Hamble Combined Club race.. Winds from the south were forecast to stay under 5kts during race time, which was not ideal with a strong ebb tide.

    5 May 2016
    . The Bottle Pursuit. Twenty boats came out for the Bottle Pursuit which separates the Wednesday Early Bird Series from the Wednesday A Series.. . Last week a solitary XOD, “Satu”, Andy Hamlet, came out to play. Very much like swallows, “one XOD does not a summer make”. So, when XOD “Mischief”, Diana Wilson turned up last night along with two Folk Boats, “Fritha” and “Isabel”, the Cornish Shrimper “Sonnett” and the X302 “Xtract” it ...more
  • Hamble River SC Early Bird Series 5, 27.4.16

    3 May 2016
    . Early Bird Series, Race 5. The weather for the final race of the Early Bird series continued to be as awkward as most previous races – difficult to set a decent course. An hour before the start dark threatening clouds enveloped Hamble, and loud rumbling thunder was enough to give some our brave sailors a few jitters!. Out on the water, the NW wind was varying between 10 knots and flat calm – so ...more
  • Hamble River SC Early Bird Series race 4, 20/04/2016

    25 Apr 2016
    . Early Bird Series race 4 . The fourth race in what has been a bright, but chilly series, saw 15 – 20kts of wind from ENE, not something that happens too often on the Solent. Starting in the vicinity of Bald Head, as all the Wednesday night races do, there is zero chance of a windward start. However, the club’s Garmin Hamble Winter Series PRO, Mr Stuart Childerly, assures me that reaching starts are ...more
  • Hamble River SC Early Bird Series 3, 13/04/2016

    25 Apr 2016
    . Hamble River SC Early Bird Series 3. Race 3 in the Early Bird Series was sailed in nigh perfect conditions – a warm, sunny evening, a neap tide and the welcome arrival of a moderate SW breeze. The balmy conditions saw the already healthy EB fleet swell to 15 boats – old heads on the committee boat were heard to mutter that this was practically unknown for an April series. Newcomers included Craig Cossar’s ...more
  • ​Hamble River SC Early Bird Series Race 2, 6/4/2016

    12 Apr 2016
    . Early Bird Series Race 2. Race 2 in the Early Bird Series saw the wind from the same NW direction as the previous week. This was the only similarity however, as this time there was a constant 15 – 20 knots with the odd gust of 28kts. In addition, the tide was flooding hard after a big Spring run that had left plenty of sand and mud round the edges of the course area.. ...more
  • Hamble River SC Early Bird Sereis Race 1, 30/03/2016

    5 Apr 2016
    . HRSC Wednesday Racing Early Bird 1. Eight hardy crews turned out for the first race in the HRSC Wednesday night Early Bird Series. As the crews prepared in the River a rain shower more suited to the month of April tested their resolve. However, by the time they reached the start area off Bald Head, the rain had stopped and a steady West North Westerly was blowing under a dark cloud in Southampton Water. ...more

    12 Nov 2015
    . Race Report Week 5. Competitors 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 ...more
