Warsash Sailing Club has revealed the dates for the 2014 Brooks Macdonald Warsash Spring Series. Six Sundays are earmarked for the Series, with starts from 10am in the central Solent. These are 16th, 23rd, 30 March and sixth, 13th, 27th April 2014. There is a week’s break over Easter. Classes offered include four IRC divisions, J/109, Sigma 38, SB20, J/70 and J/80. For Black Group there will be one good race a day around the cans for four Sundays then two races on the last two dates. White Group sportsboats enjoy three races on laid courses each week.

The Brooks Macdonald Warsash Spring Championship offers racing within a more compressed time scale on Saturday and Sunday 12th/13th April and 26th/27th April 2014. All classes included in the Spring Series can enter, plus a separate class for Farr 45s and Quarter Tonners.

Warsash Sailing Club fields a 110-strong experienced race management team for the event which has been a regular annual fixture since 1984, the year when CHS, later IRC, was introduced. Then as now the aim is to provide first-class, well-run racing afloat and a friendly welcome ashore with good value for money for competitors. Entry fees have been kept unchanged for the fifth year running. Enquiries regarding the event can be made to admin@warsashspringseries.org.uk and the Notice of Race will be available in January 2014.
