Warsash Spring Series and Championship - Prizegiving

by Peter Bateson 26 Apr 2023 23:25 BST 22-23 April 2023

After some 93 races across the various classes, the 40th Warsash Spring Series and Championship came to an end last weekend. The subsequent prize-giving saw 31 prizes and trophies distributed to the 'podium people' by Warsash Sailing Club, along with sailing jackets and bags presented by event partners Helly Hansen.

At a busy clubhouse, Warsash SC Commodore Nigel Rennie thanked everyone concerned for all their efforts, including the 50-strong volunteer race teams led by PRO Peter Knight and Black Group CRO Peter Bateson, the committee boat owners, club support staff and most of all the competitors themselves for taking part.

Most of the prizes were the traditional Warsash glass yachts regularly presented for the event.

Two special awards were made to competitors who have been supporting the Warsash Spring Series for a long time - they each won their respective classes by good margins this year in both the Spring Series and the Spring Championship. The Commodore's Cup was awarded to Simon Perry and Jiraffe. The Founder's Trophy was awarded to Quokka, Peter Rutter and James Crew.

Next year's Series will start on Sunday 17 March 2024.
