The Royal Southern Yacht Club will host the second Hamble Classics Regatta on 16-17th September 2017

The racing will take place in the Solent, one of the UK’s top sailing venues with bustling Southampton to the north and picturesque Isle of Wight to the south.

Building on the resounding success of last year’s inaugural regatta which attracted 65 entries, the 2017 Hamble Classics is set to welcome all types of classic yachts with racing tailored to suit each category.

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 Jonty Sherwill said;

“We had a fantastic response to last year’s Hamble Classics and our aim this year is to welcome 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!”

The Notice of Race will be published in early March on the Royal Southern’s website at
