With not a breath of wind in The Solent, racing was called off at midday on the final day. A virtual prize-giving was held at the Royal Southern YC Clubhouse on the banks of the River Hamble.

Commodore Graham Nixon welcomed the virtual audience using Facebook live. A charity raffle was also conducted with all the proceeds going to the chosen charities of the regatta; Solent Mind and Hamble Sea Scouts.

Royal Southern YC Commodore, Graham Nixon opened proceedings and thanked all of the supporting partners for the regatta and the volunteers and club members. There was a special thank you for the two race officers, Stuart Childerley and Tanya Robinson, who produced excellent racecourses for the regatta.

Commodore Graham Nixon commented: "The Royal Southern is delighted to see all of the competitors racing over the last three days, and it has been equally delightful for us to host the event. It has been a frustrating four months where we have had to cancel our open events. I am delighted to say that we intend to run Hamble Classics (22-23 August) and our September Regatta (19-20 September). We hope to see everybody there, and we have already booked the same weather with a little more wind!"

"We have had three days of good racing and it has been great to see everyone out there, taking the first tentative steps back to racing at this time," commented Stuart Childerley. "Congratulations to all the winners, in these difficult times it is really pleasing to see people enjoying their sailing in a safe manner."

"It's been fantastic to get everybody out sailing," commented Paul Ward, Chair of Sailing at the Royal Southern YC. "There is a long history of top class Solent racing at this club. This is what we do, and it is great to back out there again, especially with such a fantastic and varied entry. We have had a lot of help putting this event together, particularly from the RYA and a great race team led by Stuart Childerley. All of the team at the Royal Southern have worked really hard, afloat and ashore, to keep everything safe and run a good regatta."
