Hamble River Sailing Club's 2021 Hamble Warming Pan is scheduled for the Easter weekend with junior dinghy class racing on Saturday followed on Sunday by the 59th edition of the club's famous 'open' featuring all non-trapeze dinghies rated PY 970-1244, RS400s and Foxers.

Racing will be organised under RYA COVID guidelines and this year entry is limited to boats from the local area. Three back-to-back races are planned on both days with 1200 & 1300 first start times respectively. All junior classes are welcome, Oppies, Toppers, Fevas etc.

On Sunday, racing will be organised in fast and slow fleets under Portsmouth Yardstick handicapping, plus RS400 and Foxers. Other classes mustering four boats or more will receive a class prize and those with eight boats or more may have a separate start.

An Early-Bird entry rate will be available online with late entry available on the day. Full details and the Notice of Race can be found at the website - at www.hrsc.org.uk

First run in 1962, the Hamble Warming Pan was the season opener, with new designs in the highly competitive Merlin Rocket and National 12 classes launched and tested for the first time and these classes became the bedrock of this great event.

"The club has always enjoyed running the Warming Pan and now the inclusion of junior sailors reflects the resurgence of dinghy sailing at HRSC. The nine Hamble men who founded the club in 1919 'to encourage the sport of small boat sailing and racing' would surely approve!"

Steph Merry, Commodore Hamble River Sailing Club
