'Hamble Classics at the Southern'
A new Regatta at the Royal Southern YC is announced for September 2016
The Royal Southern Yacht Club will host and run the inaugural 'Hamble Classics at the Southern' Regatta on 24-25th September 2016.

Designed as a late season extravaganza of classic yachting, the Hamble Classics Regatta is set to welcome all styles of classic yachts, with racing formats to suit each type.

Metre classes, Classic Racers and Cruisers, Spirit of Tradition yachts plus Old Gaffers and Dayboats will enjoy the superb facilities at one of the UK's top yacht clubs, with first class race management and a social programme to match.

Royal Southern Yacht Club member and classic dayboat owner Jonty Sherwill conceived the Hamble Classics idea, explaining:
"With so many beautiful classics residing in the river it's high time that Hamble hosted its own full-on classics regatta and I'm delighted that the Royal Southern has embraced the idea.
For classic events to deliver maximum enjoyment for visitors it's important to match the sailing to the variety of boats entered."

To help achieve this, the 'Hamble Classics at the Southern' Regatta will have Stuart Childerley as PRO and the organisers have selected a small tide weekend for easier course setting.

Our Commodore Karen Henderson-Williams was recently interviewed by Sasha Twining on BBC Radio Solent's H20 slot.
Karen was asked about her childhood and how she got into sailing with her parents, how she progressed from dinghies into keel boats and about her role in helping to develop youth sailing at the Club. She explained her current role as well as her stewardship of the Royal Southern as only the second lady Commodore in the Club's 179 year history. Karen also discussed her aims and objectives for the Club going forward. It's a great listen, and we hope you enjoy it.
