To help deliver this the Royal Southern will have Stuart Childerley as PRO and have selected a small tide weekend to ease course setting.

David Aisher, owner of the beautiful 1888 gaff-cutter Thalia, commented: "Having sailed out of the Hamble for most of my life I was extremely pleased to hear that there was going to be a Hamble Classics Regatta. The river has built boats for hundreds of years and the banks have been the birthplace of many a fine yacht. Where better than the Hamble to sail Thalia?"
