Hamble Classics  
Date:  Sat 16th - Sun 17th September 2017  

Building on the resounding success of last year's inaugural regatta that attracted 65 entries, the 2017 Hamble Classics is set to welcome all styles of classic yachts including Metre classes, Classic Racers and Cruisers, Old Gaffers, Dayboats and Spirit of Tradition yachts, with racing formatted to suit each type.

The Hamble Classics Event Director and Royal Southern Yacht Club member Jonty Sherwill is pleased that the Royal Southern is once again hosting the regatta, commenting: "We had a fantastic response to last year's Hamble Classics and our aim this year is to welcome even more visitors this year to enjoy what the Royal Southern and the River Hamble has to offer. Some will take the racing very seriously but the event is all about the love of classic yachts, a chance to see old friends, make new ones, and enjoy some fun parties!” 

The Elephant Boatyard rum party that proved so popular last time is set to return and entrants will enjoy the superb facilities at one of the UK's top yacht clubs, with first-class race management and a full social programme. As last year our aim will be to provide good racing to suit all the various types of yachts entered and if conditions are suitable will include a river finish on Saturday afternoon, once again with the guidance and support of the River Hamble Harbour Master.
