Building on the resounding success of last year's inaugural regatta that attracted 65 entries, the 2017 Hamble Classics is set to welcome all styles of classic yachts including Metre classes, Classic Racers and Cruisers, Old Gaffers, Dayboats and Spirit of Tradition yachts, with racing formatted to suit each type.

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 Sherwill is pleased that the Royal Southern is once again hosting the regatta, commenting:

"We had a fantastic response to last year's Hamble Classics and our aim this 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!"

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.
