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

Club Pursuit Race Report
Club Pursuit Race Report
Whilst the summer sun did kindly appear for the Club Pursuit Race the wind was forecast to be absent which certainly set a challenge for the Race Office Stuart Childerley.
With competitors from all sections of the Club sailing fraternity the boats ranged from a lovely Ed Burnett gaff cutter, through many of the cruising fraternity, and across to various racers in the Club.
It is a tribute to the handicapping that the first three boats of varying sizes crossed with about twenty five seconds between them but the Commodore just squeezed in Hot Rats between Xtract and Din Volante by seven seconds on Dino Volante with Xtract some twenty seconds behind in third.

J/80’s Return to the Royal Southern
J/80’s Return to the Royal Southern
Following the handover of the boat park by Raymond Brown, this weekend we were able to start moving our day boats back from Hamble Yacht Services’ and Key Yachting’s boat park.
The first 6 boats were brought back last Saturday and the remainder will be brought back over the coming days, as resources permit.
The boat park has been levelled and tarmacked, giving berth holders an easier surface for boat movements. The crane has also been re-furbished, re-tested and re-certified, so we are now completely open for business.
