With a week to go the Warsash Spring Series race management team ran their annual practice day on 8th March. This gives the team a chance to check that the systems and processes are robust, that safety procedures are understood by all and that there are no problems with the boats or equipment.
Racing takes place on Sundays 15, 22 &29 March and 5, 19 & 26 April and the Spring Championships are on 18/19 and 25/26 April. Entries for both can be made online at www.warsashspringseries.org.uk.
Racing kicks off at around 10.00am each Sunday with White Group (Sportsboats and IRC 4) starts in the vicinity of the Royal Southern buoy and Black Group (IRC Classes) starts in the area of Bramble Bank/Lee-on-Solent/Ryde Middle.
The IRC class splits will be decided on Wednesday evening and published on the Warsash Spring Series website www.warsashspringseries.org.uk.
Helly Hansen and Doyle Sails UK are again supporting the event with prizes. Doyle Sails are giving prizes each Sunday and Helly Hansen are giving jackets for the series winners.
Series Chairman, Derek Morland said “We are looking forward to welcoming everyone on Sunday; old hands and newcomers alike. Bottles, bags and caps, provided by Doyle Sails UK, will be awarded to the class winners at the post racing get together held at the Warsash Sailing Club – but you must be there to collect it! Don’t forget there are drinks at the bar and food after the racing and during the weekly prize giving. See you out on the water – or in the bar!”.
