May Regatta  
Date:  Saturday 13th - Sunday 14th May  

This will be the first of the Royal Southern’s four annual, summer regattas, where we provide high quality, competitive racing for multiple classes.

The weekend is also the first event of the IRC Solent Region Championship  (

The Black Line handles boats with a current IRC certificate, racing a mix of windward-leeward and round-the-cans courses, while Cruiser Class uses a Club handicap system, predominantly racing simpler round-the cans courses.

Our White Line hosts the one designs including J/70s, J/80s, Laser SB20s, a mixed Sports boat Handicap class and the XOD class; racing predominantly windward-leeward courses.
