Entries for the 38th HYS Hamble Winter Series are now open. With memories of the 2019 longest day already receding, thoughts are turning to two months of fun and competition that is the HYS Hamble Winter Series.

The main series will run over eight Sundays from 6th October to 1st December with the usual gap weekend on the 2nd and 3rd November.

Once again the first weekend will include the IRC Autumn Championships over the two days of the 5th and 6th October. The Performance 40 Class will sail for double points in what is their final event of their series on this weekend.

The Hamble One Design Championships for J70 and SB20 fleets will take place over the weekends of the 5th and 6th October and the 19th and 20th October.

Finally the Hamble Big Boat Championship will be sailed on Sundays the 13th, 20th and 27th October.

Any yacht entering the complete Main Series gets entry to the IRC Autumn Championship and the Hamble Big Boat Championship free of charge.
