Hamble Yacht Services (HYS) and the Hamble River Sailing Club (HRSC) announce a three-year partnership for the HYS Hamble Winter Series. Well over 1,000 sailors will be taking part in the UK's most popular winter series, all of which will benefit from the long-term partnership.
The 2018 HYS Hamble Winter Series will be the 37th edition run by the HRSC, the event is organised by a very experienced team, led by PRO Kathy Smalley, and supported by around 40 dedicated volunteers every race day.
"Organising racing for the series requires resources, and whilst we have the tremendous support of enthusiastic volunteers, the partnership with HYS gives us the financial support to keep entry fees low. The Hamble River Sailing Club is delighted that HYS is sponsoring the series, and we would encourage all of the teams to support HYS, so that our partnership will continue for years to come." commented Steph Merry Commodore of HRSC.
HYS is a professional full-service open yard on the River Hamble with comprehensive facilities, and a reputation for excellence and expertise. Many of the teams racing in the HYS Hamble Winter Series are already customers of Hamble Yacht Services.
"Supporting the HYS Hamble Winter Series helps the organisers to provide good race management, which is for the benefit of everyone involved. We have a great community spirit at HYS, sponsoring the series is very much part of that ethos." commented HYS Director, Bertie Bicket.
The 2018 HYS Hamble Winter Series will run from the 6th October to 2ndDecember 2018. Teams will be racing in IRC Classes and One Designs.
