The six-Sunday Spring Series is now in its 30th year and continues to attract boats in four IRC divisions as well as five one design classes and mixed sportsboats. The addition of the Spring Championship, taking place on the final two weekends of 20th/21st and 27th/28th April, brings the event to an exciting finale with multiple races, every one of which counts.
This year Warsash Sailing Club has extended the Spring Championship to all IRC classes as well as one designs, quarter tonners and 45-footers.
New for 2013 is the J/70 class, recently voted European Yacht of the Year. The first J/70 to enter, in both the Spring Series and Spring Championship, was Solent sailor Simon Cavey’s Pheebs and with 22 J/70s sold in the UK so far, this class should see some thrilling action.
The SB20 Class Association has included the final weekend as one of their five events to count towards the Solent Series. For SB20s and other slipway-launchable keelboats, Warsash Sailing Club is making some dry berthing space available at Shore House on a first come, first served basis.
