Twenty knots plus on Saturday and light to moderate conditions on Sunday produced two excellent days racing in the Garmin Hamble Winter Series over the weekend 18/19 October.

The action included the final set of races for the Laser SB3 class in the Hamble Autumn Championships which this weekend incorporated racing for the Sigma 38, Sigma 33, J109, J105, J80, Beneteau 31.7, and Hunter 707 one-design classes. MDL was the day sponsor for the main Garmin Hamble Winter Series held on Sunday.

The finale of the Autumn Championships saw a down to the wire battle for first place in the 36 strong SB3 class.Three Sad Old Blokes (Jerry Hill) eventually took the title by a slim margin of two points from Selden Masts (Chris Jennings) after nine highly competitive races.

All other classes racing in the Autumn Championships completed four short windward-leeward races on Saturday and added these scores to their points tally from Sundays Garmin Hamble Winter series racing.

Top scoring boat of the weekend was Betty (Jon Powell) who dominated the Hunter 707 class with six straight wins. Also impressive were J Dream (David and Kirsty Athorp) in the J109 class, Whistler (Mark Lloyd) in the Beneteau 31.7 class and Whippa Snappa (Richard Puddifoot) in the Sigma 33s who all finished with five wins out of six.

In the main Garmin Hamble Winter Series on Sunday competitors enjoyed excellent racing after an initial postponement to allow a cold front to clear the race area.

For the third consecutive week two races were held for each of the seven classes within the Black fleet after a one-hour delay. This weeks stars were Batfish III (Bill Blain) in IRC0, Flexer in IRC 2 and Fay-J (Paul Griffiths) in the J105 class, all recording double wins.

The series long battle in IRC1 between Quokka (Peter Rutter) and Premier Flair (Jim McGregor) continues with both boats recording race wins and overall advantage swinging back in favour of Quokka by a single point.

Over on the White fleet course area each class completed two races after a well-judged two-hour postponement. Badger (Paul Lovejoy) moved into the overall lead in the SB3 class after recording a first and fifth. Betty (Jon Powell) continued to dominate the Hunter 707 class and 'Joystick' (Vic Gregory and Rob Larke) stayed in the lead of the J80s taking a win and a fourth place from the day's racing.

Next Sunday is the mid-point of the Garmin Hamble Winter Series when the traditional Charity Pursuit Race will take place. The race will be in aid of The John Merricks Trust, Hamble Inshore Lifeboat and Sail-for Cancer, and the main series racing will resume on Sunday 9 November.
