Brewin Dolphin British Open Metre Regatta 2012: Age is no barrier to top class racing
Brewin Dolphin British Open Metre Regatta 2012: Age is no barrier to top class racing
Michael Austen Photography
The Brewin Dolphin British Open Metre Regatta, hosted by the Royal Southern Yacht Club in Hamble from 27th - 29th June, was an event of multiple winners and multiple weather conditions.
Racing was held over three days on windward leeward courses, set in the mid-Solent. On the first day, each of the three races was won by a different boat. On points, the Classic Six Metre Class was dominated very narrowly by Fenton Burgin’s Sioma, the oldest yacht in the fleet, designed in 1927. Meanwhile in the Modern Class, the first day was led by one point by Tom Richardson’s Georgia.

Rally to Gins May 22nd/23rd
After weeks of wind and rain there was a certain reluctance by members to commit to this rally. However, 24 intrepid sailors in 11 yachts braved the trip to Gins and were rewarded by glorious sunny weather on both days.
Lymington Mid-week Rally, Tues 19 - Wed 20 June
A special magic guides the Cruising Committee in setting the mid-week rally schedule. In this truly awful summer not just the May Beaulieu rally but also the Lymington rally were neatly slotted in on two decent days between the endless procession of lows piling across the Atlantic.

Brewin Dolphin British Open Metre Regatta 2012: It’s a wrap as Day Three is abandoned in heavy winds
Brewin Dolphin British Open Metre Regatta 2012: It’s a wrap as Day Three is abandoned in heavy winds
www.michaelausten.co.uk/
35 knots is not the favourite weather of Six Metre yachts, especially when some of them are 85 years old. This morning (Friday) Principal Race Office David Arnold made a decisive call to abandon racing for the day for the fleet at the Brewin Dolphin British Open Metre Regatta in Hamble, UK, effectively bringing the event to its conclusion.
Luckily five mid-Solent races had already been completed over the past two of days giving a more than satisfactory set of finishing results for the competitors. Andy Ash-Vie’s Wildcat squeaked to a win in the Modern class, on the low point scoring system, in a very close spar with Tom Richardson’s Georgia.

It was a day of changes and more changes at the Brewin Dolphin British Open Metre Regatta in the Solent today as the wind shifted suddenly from nearly due east to SSW then finally settling on west, during the first of the two windward leeward race courses for the Classic and Modern Six Metres in the Royal Southern Yacht Club event. “We had everything from 0 – 28 knots and from various directions,” commented Principal Race Officer David Arnold, “so we were kept on our toes!”

The opening day of the Brewin Dolphin British Open Metre Regatta belonged to everyone and no one. Each of the three windward leeward races in two separate classes over courses set by the Royal Southern Yacht Club were won by a different boat.
The classic Six Metre class was dominated very narrowly by Fenton Burgin’s Sioma, the oldest yacht in the fleet, designed in 1927. Meanwhile in the Modern class day one was led by one point by Tom Richardson’s Georgia.

The first winner of the Royal Southern Match Cup Final was the event itself because with the scheduled racing days surrounded by gales and the Pelican SB20s stuck in Cowes, would the event at the Royal Southern YC in Hamble take place at all?
In the end, as the boats couldn't get to the event, the event would go to the boats which is why after the briefing at the Southern, a flotilla of RIBs and Committee Boats set off through the Solent chop to rendezvous with the boats in Osborne Bay.

June Summer Series Regatta report  Royal Southern 175 Regatta, sponsored by Brewin Dolphin
Michael Austen Photography
What a difference a fortnight makes – from near Mediterranean conditions at the start of the 175 Regatta sponsored by Brewin Dolphin, to a more typical early summer in The Solent with grey skies at its culmination in the June Regatta held last weekend (June 9-10).
Luck, however, did not desert the regatta entirely, as the storm force conditions seen along the south coast earlier in the week abated sufficiently to allow racing to go ahead on the Saturday. All classes lost a race from the programme as the breeze built again in the afternoon, but the competitors were earlier able to test themselves in the heavy airs.

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.
