Winter Series Wrap Up…
The Inaugural Royal Southern Yacht Club Academy Winter Series got underway in late November having lost one day to winter storms. What followed was two days of exciting, close and breeze-on sportsboat racing in J70 and J80 classes.
After a short postponement race one got underway in a building breeze of 20 knots or so, with conservative starts from the majority of the fleet. A short, 3 lap course was set which was eventually shortened owing to the building breeze.

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
