The Hamble Winter Series has started on the Solent and Southampton Water, hosted by the Hamble Sailing Club. The prospects for the first day looked bleak, but then some breeze arrived from the East. For the J/70s, Marshall King in SOAK RACING was able to discard a third and count only one second place for six points to win the Class. Tim Collins’ EV EXPERTS was five points back in second. Thor Askeland & Rob Larke’s MJOLNIR came third with 20 points. Rounding out the top five was Jack Davies’ YETI in fourth and Simon Weeks’ MIMI’S in fifth place.
