J/70 UK National Championships - days 1 & 2
J/70 UK National Championships - days 1 & 2
Image: J/UK Tim Wright
With 30 boats on one start line, the first day of the J/70 UK National Championship featured the largest fleet of J/70s that have ever raced in the United Kingdom.
Ian Atkins racing, with Ruairidh Scott on the helm, leads after four races but it was never easy for the reigning UK National Champions.
A light gradient wind from the east south east, veered during the day, but also flicked back to the east, which kept the tacticians on their toes. The wind speed rarely exceeded ten knots, whilst the racing was not physically taxing, today's shifting breeze was a real test of tactical awareness. Starting well is always important but even more so in light airs, two general recalls and a highly competitive start line, were indicative of the competition within the fleet.

2015 Cruiser Race Report
2015 Cruiser Race Report
Luckily most of the Cruiser Race fleet got away to Cherbourg before the strong winds came in. Sadly Watermark and Bambella did not make it in time to get the benign wind. The rest of us assembled in Cherbourg by Saturday morning.  
The forecast for Sunday our departure day for Carteret was for force 5 to 6 South west winds gusting to force 7 so the decision during our supper at the Cherbourg Yacht Club was for a delayed start and in fact the forecast was for even stronger wind on Monday.

Newtown Creek Rally
Newtown Creek Rally
Tuesday's forecast was for a blustery day but, undaunted, 5 boats set off for Newtown Creek. There was the typical wind over tide situation leading to a short chop. The sail was made more interesting by the Classic Yachts racing in their regatta, some beautiful 8 and 6 metres, ...

The British Optimist Nationals
The British Optimist Nationals
The Royal Southern Yacht Club was represented in Mini Racers, Regatta Coaching, Transition and Senior Main Fleets' amongst 450 sailors, along with a coach and mark layers.
The Transition fleet sailed 18 races in full offshore conditions and was dominated by Finlay Craigen who won 8 races and the regatta, other notable results were a 15th from Tom Ewart-Smith and 21st from Lucy Davis.
The Senior Main Fleet consisted of 163 sailors split into Silver and Gold fleets. Charles Handley sailed out of his dry suit for the first two days to make the Gold fleet and finished as 23rd top placed Brit. Certainly some names to look out for the future, all of whom started their sailing at Splash.

The Prince Phillip Yacht Haven at the Royal Southern Yacht Club was the impressive venue for an important announcement by the Wetwheels Foundation, which provides disabled and disadvantaged people access to the sea through fully accessible powerboats.

Champagne Joseph Perrier July Regatta Report
Champagne Joseph Perrier July Regatta Report
Spectacular Conditions Image: Paul Wyeth
The Royal Southern Yacht Club's deserved reputation for top-flight race organisation has spread far from The Solent, so it is no surprise that the Champagne Joseph Perrier July Regatta attracted racers from beyond the club's Hamble River base.
Commented Prue Nash 'We were the lowest rated boat in the class and were really chuffed to do so well. It was champagne sailing, literally in this case. A fantastic regatta and really well organised'.
The Royal Southern is also showing its mettle, along with its unrivalled facilities, in running national events alongside its core programme, this weekend also hosting the Open British 6 Metre Championship.
