Hamble River Sailing Club is delighted to welcome the OK class to the 58th Hamble Warming Pan open meeting for their rescheduled Winter Championship.

All non-trapeze dinghies rated PY 970-1172, RS400 and Foxers are invited with those in the PY group mustering eight boats or more getting a separate start, and four or more to receive a class prize. The first start of three back-to-back races is scheduled at 1200 with food and drink available at the clubhouse before and after racing.

An Early-Bird entry rate (£10 single-hander, £15 double-hander) is available NOW online until 22nd March, standard entry rate until the 27th, and late entry rate available on the day. Full details and the Notice of Race can be found at the HRSC website www.hrsc.org.uk

First run in 1962, the Warming Pan was the season opener, with new designs in the highly competitive Merlin Rocket and National 12 classes being tested for the first time. Now HRSC is pleased to invite competitive sailors in other non-trapeze dinghy classes to experience the unique fun of the Hamble Warming Pan.
