Warsash Spring Champs Preview
After a relatively gentle start to the season (1st weekend aside) with the Raymarine Warsah Spring Series this weekend will see the number of entries jump for the first weekend of the SB3 Spring Championships run within the main Raymarine Warsah Spring Series. This will be the first outing for much of the fleet ahead of the rest of the 2008 season which continues with the second Spring Championship weekend on the 26/27th April and the first Grand Prix event being hosted by the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club, Cowes over the May Day bank holiday weekend.
The long term forecast looks like the conditions could be pretty exciting for the weekend so we can look forward some top quality racing. This year Warsash Sailing Club have given the SB3`s their own committee boat and race course which has worked extremely well, no more waiting around after the inevitable general recalls and so far a restrained use of the black flag by the PRO. Lets hope the fleet can repay this efficient race management with an adherence to the rules around the cans.
