Warsash Spring Series is the Solent’s premier early season event for keelboats. The dates have been announced by Warsash Sailing Club for 2012.

Six Sundays are earmarked for the main Series, with starts in the central Solent. These are 18th and 25th March, first, 15th, 22nd and 29th April 2012. There is a week’s break over Easter. IRC handicap, Sigma 38 and J/109 classes are included in Black Group when one longer race is held each Sunday. The White Group (Laser SB3s, J/80s) aims to complete three short races a day.

The dates for the Warsash Spring Championship, with racing on Saturday and Sunday, are 21st/22nd April and 28th/29th April. Here selected Black Group boats (including the 'Big Boat' classes, J/109s and Farr 45s) will enjoy a total of 12 races. On the same dates White Group sportsboats have 14 races.

Spring Series Chairman Peter Bateson said: 'The Spring Series and Spring Championship will follow the popular format but we are introducing some innovations, which will be announced later. Our aim as always is to provide a first class, well run event afloat, a friendly welcome ashore and good value for money to competitors.'

A free ferry service is on hand to bring all competitors to Warsash Sailing Club’s premises near the entrance to the River Hamble after racing. Enquiries regarding the event can be made to admin(@)warsashspringseries.org.uk. Anyone interested can also sign up for email updates through the website. Warsash Spring Series website
