    Dear All, Please find below the final race report from the 2013 Garmin Hamble Winter Series and some great pics by Paul Wyeth/pwpictures.com. Ben A cold, crisp day ushered in the final race of the 2013 Garmin Hamble Winter Series.

    Garmin Hamble Winter Series Weekend 7 Race Report

    By Ben Meakins. Photos by Paul Wyeth The penultimate weekend of the Garmin Hamble Winter Series saw a chilly and gusty breeze that shifted regularly between 002 and 022 degrees, demanding frequent tacks and rewarding tacticians with their heads out of the boat. Despite only reaching 18 knots, the wind was gusty enough to keep trimmers on their toes.   In some classes, boats that have been dominant throughout the series consolidated their

    Garmin Hamble Winter Series Race Report Weekend 6

    Report by Ben Meakins. Photos by Paul Wyeth A light forecast presented a challenge to the race committee in the Garmin Hamble Winter Series this week. With the fickle and shifty wind in the north, the committee boats stalked the fleet with the 'shortened course' flags, but the wind held, and despite the building tide the fleets finished in time to repair to the clubhouse for beer and chips. The race officer set

    Garmin Hamble Winter Series report Weekend 5

    by Ben Meakins After weeks of gales, it was with some trepidation that the Garmin Hamble Winter Series fleet nosed out of the river on Sunday in time for their start. Fears of wintry weather were misplaced, however, and some hours later the fleet returned with grins on their faces. ‘Awesome day on the water’ and ‘Champagne sailing conditions’ were some of the phrases heard bandied around the clubhouse after racing by competitors sporting

    Garmin Hamble Winter Series Weekend 4 Report

    The storm that has caused travel chaos on roads and railways also kept competitors ashore in the Garmin Hamble Winter Series and Doyle Sails Hamble One Design Championships at the weekend. Saturday saw a steady 25 knots with gusts into the mid-thirties, which forced the race committee to hoist N over A on the club flagstaff and abandon racing for the day. Competitors were kept abreast of news on the event

    By Ben Meakins. Photos: GHWS Ross Elliston, HBBC Trevor Pountain.  ‘Windy, wet and lumpy’ was how one competitor described Sunday’s racing in the third weekend of the Garmin Hamble Winter Series. It was a breezy day indeed that saw a base wind of 23 knots and gusts of up to 30 that greeted the fleet as they made their way to the start on Sunday morning. A gusty breeze, combined with a steep

    Garmin Hamble Winter Series Weekend 2 and Doyle Sails Hamble One Design Championships Weekend 1

    By Ben Meakins. Photos : DSHODC Betrand Malas, GHWS Malcolm Donald The Garmin Hamble Winter Series lived up to its name on Sunday with torrential rain and a chilly 18 knots from the North West that left competitors glad to repair to the bar after racing. But despite the conditions the crews and the volunteer race teams alike braved the conditions to fit in two exciting races. The worst of the rain

  • Garmin Hamble Winter Series & MDL Hamble Big Boat Championships - Race Report Weekend 1

    by Ben Meakins.

So it was a relief to find that the forecast had improved during Friday night, predicting 8-10 knots by late afternoon on Saturday. With an oscillating breeze
