SB20 Class Ready For Action-Packed 2015 National & Sprint Championships
The Stormforce Coaching SB20 UK National Championships takes place at the Royal Southern Yacht Club in Hamble this weekend.
Racing begins with the Sportsboat World/Spinlock Sprint Championship on Friday, 4th September, which will see 6 quick-fire races scheduled on one day, as an exciting warm-up for the 2015 National title contest.
"This event is all about spending the maximum time racing!" Alan Hillman of Sportsboat World explained, "With many people finding themselves time-scarce today we need to find formats for sailing events which give maximum bang for your buck, so we are trying this format at the inaugural Sportsboat World/Spinlock Sprint Championships.

J/70 UK National Championships - Winners Decided
J/70 UK National Championships - Winners Decided
Boats.com 2015 J/70 UK National Champions
The 30 strong fleet enjoying 10-12 knots of breeze from the north, gusting up to 15 knots putting the powerful J/70s just up on the plane. A complex tidal flow on Hill Head Plateau and Southampton Water, coupled with two big wind shifts, produced an aquatic conundrum for the fleet. On the final day, Steve Northmore's Waterjet Precision Cutting won Race 5, Patrick Liardet's Cosmic took the gun in Race 6, Russell Peters took Race 7 and Boats.com won the last race.

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 Boats.com, 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.

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.

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.

The Scots have been making their presence felt south of the border recently, and so it was with the Royal Southern Yacht Club's North Sails June Regatta where Eala of Rhu took top spot in a hotly contested IRC1.
Normally based on the Clyde, Jamie McGarry and Colin Moore's co-owned Swan 45 sailed consistently through the two days of the regatta to narrowly take the win ahead of Adam Gosling's Corby 36 Yes!, a significant Solent scalp for the visitors.

Royal Southern Match Cup Event Roundup
Royal Southern Match Cup Event Roundup
Ian Williams emerged as a worthy winner of the first ever World Match Racing Tour event to be held in the UK, the Royal Southern Match Cup 2015. But this ISAF Grade 2 event posed a real scare for Ian from the Club's own Academy member Mark Lees in the semi-finals.
Five-time World Match Racing Tour (WMRT) champion and the current world number one, Williams had kept a 100 per cent win record until he ran into Lees in the first of the knock-out series. Lees took the first race and an early lead in the best-of-five, before Williams hit back taking the next two. In a declining and shifty Solent breeze, and despite a coming together at the top mark, Lees kept the tie alive with a win to level the scores. Article is a round-up article of all 4 days
