Hamble River Sailing Club is pleased to announce as part of its Centenary celebrations a 3-Day Regatta on June 7th-9th 2019 reviving the tradition of its annual summer regatta with racing for all ages and all classes of boat. Pick your day and prepare to have some fun!

DAY 1 - Friday 7th June '50+Day' for the more mature sailor, anyone 50 years and over, to include (we hope) some who will remember HRSC in its heyday of Olympic sailing and dinghy championship successes. Racing for dinghies under PY and keelboats under HRSC Club Handicap, the perfect opportunity to dust off a treasured boat and challenge old rivals. After racing come ashore for a Rum Party on the HRSC patio, raise a glass and enjoy the best view the River Hamble. Centenary prizes for class winners, 60+, 70+ etc! and for boat/crew combos totalling 100 years or more. See the Notice of Race for full details at: www.hrsc.org.uk/sailing/june-regatta-50-plus-1

DAY 2 - Saturday 8th June - Open Junior Racing Day for under 18's sailing in club boats or your own class boat with PY handicap and One-Design classes - but non-trapeze dinghies only! Mums and dads welcome to participate too, in the parent and child category. After racing enjoy a BBQ party and prizegiving at the HRSC clubhouse, See the Notice of Race for full details at: www.hrsc.org.uk/sailing/june-regatta-juniors-1

DAY 3 - Sunday 9th June - One-Day Solent Racing Regatta for all IRC classes and Sportsboat Classes, J/70 etc., HRSC Club Handicap keelboats and XODs, plus Foxer racing in the river. Post-race party and prizegiving. See the Notice of Race for full details at: www.hrsc.org.uk/sailing/june-regatta-irc-racing-1

Hamble River Sailing Club (HRSC) was founded in 1919 by nine Hamble men to 'encourage the sport of small boat sailing and racing'. In recognition of the club's mission the Centenary year programme has been labelled 'Then. Now. For Future Generations'. From the humble beginnings of a wooden storage hut in the kitchen garden of the "Bugle Inn" the present clubhouse is now at the southern end of the Parish Dinghy Park and the overall aim of the Centenary year is to raise funds to fulfil an ambition to renovate the clubhouse facilities as well as raise awareness to extend its membership.

HRSC is one of the premier sailing clubs in the country with a growing list of sailing achievements. Most notable was when in 1972 six of the 13-man Great Britain Olympic sailing team were HRSC members and brought back a Gold and Silver medal. Today, HRSC's Hamble Winter Series is the premier late-season series in the UK yachting calendar.

"We are really looking forward to bringing everyone together to reflect on our achievements and inject new momentum into supporting sailing at all levels and for all ages on the River Hamble," comments Stephanie Merry, Commodore at Hamble River Sailing Club. "We have come along way since our ambitious and humble beginnings in 1919. It is a privilege to have this opportunity to support a growing and talented membership, whether sailing for competitive reasons or just for the fun, on the wonderful River Hamble".
