    Wednesday Spring Series 3 - 2nd May

The plug was out in the solent so the race box set a challenging course around the bay keeping competitors off the shallows. Carl Blenkinsop took the bullet in the cats ahead of Shaun Kellett and Tony Wyeth. In the fast handicap Tim Harris reportedly forgot that an RS500 doesn't have wings which may have

    Mike Martin Memorial Race - Sunday 29th April

    The 15 knot cold North Easterly breeze didn't seem that inviting for the annual Mike Martin Memorial trophy. The race, designed to get all classes racing together on a single course, makes for an exciting time on the water and congestion on mark rounding. The final results are worked out on an average lap time basis allowing slower classes a chance of winning against the faster boats. 27 boats started. The majority of boats managed

    Spring Series 1 - Sunday 15th April

The Shadow catamarans were sent around East Lepe and were headed home by Paul Bowen from the visiting James French. The fast handicap had an impressive 12 starters.

The Olympic Finn helmed by James Downer won the medium handicap
