Gaffers, Dayboats and Spirit of Tradition yachts, with racing formatted to suit
All 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.
The Hamble Classics Event Director and Royal Southern Yacht Club member Jonty

year is towelcome even more visitors to this superb regatta and 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!"
