Junior Warming Pan 2020
At the moment we would expect that the Junior Warming Pan to go ahead as the event is outside and considered relatively low risk. We do however understand if you decide not to come along just please let us know. Please refrain from using the clubhouse apart from accessing the toilets. All briefings will be held outside on the decking area outside the club. Prize Giving will be held outside.
One of the biggest junior racing events at the HRSC
Local sailing clubs will compete for the Junior Warming Pan Trophy (sponsored by River Hamble Combined Clubs)
Under 18s from local sailing clubs will race in this junior inter-club competition, taking part on Saturday 28 March.
This is the first and largest meeting for junior class racing on the Hamble River in 2020. The aim is to accommodate all children under 18 years old by providing races for Optimist, Pico, Feva, Tera and Mixed PY classes. The Junior Warming Pan is open to non-members.
The regatta is attracting interest and has been earmarked as a 'local derby', encouraging the three clubs on the river to extend its local rivalry across all age groups. Hamble River Sailing Club, Royal Southern Yacht Club and Warsash Sailing Club, along with other local clubs, will compete for the opportunity to walk away with the 2020 Warming Pan Trophy (sponsored by River Hamble Combined Clubs).
"There has always been a little rivalry between the clubs on the river. This event gives junior sailors the chance to follow in their parents' footsteps and compete for recognition," says Alice Ryan, Event Director at HRSC. "We look forward to putting on a fun, exciting and competitive event for our young sailors living around the river".
Up to four races are scheduled and the racing will be held in the Hamble River and Southampton Water. The intention is to start and finish racing at the HRSC clubhouse, allowing parents to watch from the shore.
To be part of this exciting event, competitors need to enter online by 16 March for the discounted rate, after which prices will increase by £5. We look forward to seeing as many of our junior sailors as possible and may the best club win!
