Warsash Sailing Club was packed on 16 May 2008 when the prizegiving for the Raymarine Warsash Spring Series and Spring Championship was held. 2008 marked the Silver Jubilee of the event which started on a much smaller scale but this year saw 277 entries - the second highest total ever.

Chairman Peter Bateson thanked the 125 volunteers who had made everything run smoothly. On some weeks, the race management team had included Fiona Pankhurst, International Marketing Communications Manager for title sponsors Raymarine. Fiona and her husband Terry had joined the busy Laser SB3 committee boat with Commodore Peter Knight running a separate line for this class in 2008.

Special thanks were given to Cliff and June Norbury who had provided their Starlight 39 Zest as a committee boat for the event over many years. Cliff was also retiring from the Spring Series Committee where his words of wisdom would be sadly missed.

It was then time to present over 60 prize winners before reaching the three special trophies for the year. The Commodore’s Cup is awarded to the outstanding winner of an IRC class. This year it went to Nick and Anne Haigh of Dark and Steamy. They scored four first places out of five ranking races in IRC1 as well as winning their class in the Big Boat Championship.

The Founder’s Trophy, presented in memory of Tom Cozens, one of the founders of Warsash Sailing Club 51 years ago, went to Geoff Carveth (Palava) in the Laser SB3 class who won the Spring Championship by a 35 point margin and the Spring Series by an even more remarkable 45 points.

The Raymarine Trophy is presented by the event sponsors to a boat or individual on merit. This year it went to the J/80 team of Ian Atkins on Boats.com who won both the Spring Series and Spring Championship but especially showed good sportsmanship and support for the event.
