    Hamble Winter Series - Race Report Week 6

    Hamble Winter Series Race Week 6 The joys of being a Race Officer were highlighted this week, when the Smalley/Bateson team, on the CV Wetwheels, set out some great courses for a wind direction of 120 degrees.

    Hamble Winter Series Race Week 3

    Hamble Winter Series Race Week 3 "A challenging weekend for race management and competitors" said Barney Smith, Impala 28, Imptish. He was not wrong. Saturday's forecast looked a little tasty and it did not disappoint. Winds were forecast to be north of 20 knots, with "pulses," I think the modern description is, somewhat higher.
