Sailing Networks Hamble BBS Report

J/109 sailing Big Boat Series in Hamble (Hamble, England)- The Hamble Big Boat Series, ran alongside the One Design Championships on the 2nd and 3rd weekends of the Garmin Hamble Winter Series, offered top-notch racing for some of the best-sailed big boats in the country. This year, popular social media site Sailing Networks sponsored the event, which proved popular with competitors.

After four days of racing and 12 races, sailed in mainly light winds, the biggest boats raced in the IRC 0 class saw the main series leader, Riklin’s J/111 JITTERBUG placing third overall.  Just two points behind them was Chris Daniel’s J/122 JUNO in fourth position.  The J/111 JOURNEYMAKER sailed by Louise Makin and Chris Jones placed 6th overall.

Thanks go to all competitors and to sponsor Sailing Networks, for their support, and we look forward to seeing you all on the start line next year. Sailing photo credits- Paul Wyeth/ and Hamo Thornycroft.  For more Garmin Hamble Winter Series sailing information
