Garmin Hamble Winter Series

The Garmin Hamble Winter Series

Run by Hamble River Sailing Club, the Garmin Hamble Winter Series runs over eight weeks from October to early December. Most of the racing takes place on Sunday mornings although there are two weekends on which the Island Charters’ fleet of J/109s is invited to sail on boat Saturday and Sunday, the ‘One Design Championship’ weekends.

The Winter Series is always well attended and the racing is enormous fun and well managed and the series has a very relaxed feel to it. That’s not to say that the competition is anything less than top-notch: on the contrary, each race weekend during the series has a different sponsor and there are fabulous weekly prizes for the top three boats in each class so you can expect some hotly fought races!

The Garmin Hamble Winter Series presents the perfect opportunity to get a race crew practiced and working as a team. You will see your performance improve over the eight weeks of the series and of course you will sail in a variety of conditions from glorious autumn sunshine through to full-on blustery weather. It’s always enormous fun and one of the best training platforms available for helms and crews alike. It is the regatta series of choice for anyone in training mode or who has a racing ambition to fulfil in the following year: when spring arrives and the new season starts, those teams which have taken part in the Winter Series are always one step ahead of the competition.

Island Charters will ensure that your boat is perfectly prepped to perform each weekend throughout the Winter Series; all you and your crew have to do is to turn up on the boat each Sunday with a winning attitude and Island Charters will take care of everything else. Please just contact the Island Charters team and we will find you the perfect Winter Series boat.
