With two races planned for the 17th that will make a total of four races with no discard.

Last year's champion, ICY, Melges IC37, Ian Atkins, has already entered to defend her title. She will receive stiff competition from, amongst others, the Performance 40 Class. This year's J-Cup Class 1 winner Juno, J/122, Christopher Daniel has also entered the fray.

The Hamble Star Trophy was presented to HRSC in 1934 by the Household Brigade Yacht Club. It is presented in memory of Jane Windsor.
