Hamble, 1 October 2014:  HRSC is delighted to welcome Doyle Sails back as the lead sponsor of the Hamble One Design Championships. 2014 will be the 12th edition of this popular event, attracting both white  and black fleet one design racing over two weekends – 4/5th October and 18/19th October.  
 
“Many classes competing in the Doyle Sails Hamble One Design Championships use Doyle Sails, which makes this such an ideal partnership”, said Trevor Pountain, Commodore Hamble River Sailing Club.
 
Key Yachting, exclusive distributor for J Boats in the UK for twenty years, will also support the 2014 event with day sponsorship on Sunday 19th October.
 
Paul Heys, MD, J Boats, said: "The Hamble One Design Championships have been a staple of our J Boats racing calendar for some years now, we are pleased to support a firm favourite event."
 
This year the weekend of 1/2nd November has been designated as a ‘spare’, so as to give the race management team the flexibility to run racing should one of the earlier weekends be completely lost to bad weather.
 
The Doyle Sails Hamble One Design Championships will offer 3 races on each Saturday and 2 races each Sunday. Racing, under the experienced eye of CROs Jamie Wilkinson and Stephen Parry, is offered on white group for SBR, J/70, J/80 and SB20 classes and on black group for J/109, J/92 and Impala classes.  Other One Design Classes that can muster a minimum of six entries may also apply for a class start. Please contact HRSC to discuss.
 
Doyle Sails is one of the world's largest sail makers, with over 80 locations around the world. The Southampton Loft, based at Shamrock Quay covers every aspect of sail making and service from Dinghies to Superyachts and aims to be the first choice loft for repairs, service and laundry.
 
The Doyle Sails Hamble One Design Championships is a key component of the Garmin Hamble Winter Series, organised and run by Hamble River Sailing Club.  Prizegiving is at 3.30pm each Sunday race day at HRSC Clubhouse, which offers a warm welcome, hot food and competitively priced beer!
