The Solent’s premier early season racing series - Raymarine Warsash Spring Series 2008 - organised by Warsash Sailing Club gets underway on Sunday 16 March. The Notice of Race and entry form are available on www.warsashsc.org.uk. Online entries are welcome and there are great savings to be made before 22 February 2008.

The Raymarine Warsash Spring Series dates are 16 and 30 March; 6, 13, 20 and 27 April. There will also be the Spring Championships, with multiple races over two weekends. For White Group classes these will be on 19/20 ad 26/27 April. The quarter ton class will also be racing.

The “Big Boat” weekends on 5/6 April and 19th/20th April comprise three classes: 45 footers , boats with IRC rating over 1.090 and First 40.7s. The RYA will be using the Raymarine Warsash Spring Series as a trial event for selecting teams for this year’s Rolex Commodore’s Cup.

White Group will have two separate start lines and courses this year so that the SB3s will be separate from the Hunter 707s, J/80s and SBR sportsboats. Black Group comprises four IRC classes plus J/105s and J/109s racing as one designs.

After racing there'll be the usual warm welcome at Warsash Sailing Club, for fast, on-screen results. Our sponsors Raymarine will also be presenting the weekly class winners with Champagne Mumm.

2008 marks the Silver Jubilee of the event. In spring 1984 the Sailing Committee of Warsash Sailing Club, under the chairmanship of David Laskey, introduced a six race open series for the Warsash Salver, run on the six weekends prior to Easter. From the start it attracted a good entry and was renamed Warsash Spring Series in 1987. At that time the yacht designs of choice were Nicholson 303 and Sigma 33. One of the early Chief Race Officers was David Thomas, whose own Sigma 33 Circe was often a winner.

Online entries can be made via the website www.warsashsc.org.uk or contact:

Warsash Sailing Club, Shore Road, Warsash SO31 9FS, telephone 01489 583575, email admin@warsashsc.org.uk.
