The Hamble Classics welcomes all types of classic style yachts and since 2016 has attracted serious contenders each year for its Concours d’Elegance Awards.  Uniquely to the event there are four separate categories to reward the diversity of entries, with prizes for historic wooden-built classics, Spirit of Tradition and the best GRP yacht.

Racing for all classes is to be organised in the central Solent on Saturday and Sunday with two course areas to suit the various types of boats, plus for the first time an extra day’s racing on Friday 20th for the IRC Zero class including the big Spirit Yachts, plus other larger classics. The PRO for this year’s Hamble Classics will be Peter Bateson, as in each of the previous regattas, with an experienced RAFYC team and additional support from Hamble River Sailing Club, this year celebrating its Centenary.

All yacht crews are welcome at the club from noon on the Friday for afternoon tea and cakes before the Welcome Reception.  Within this packed programme of racing there are plenty of opportunities for socialising at the onshore events including the Elephant Boatyard Rum Party on Saturday at the RAFYC and the Hamble Classics Dinner.

With continued support from Spinlock, Performance Rigging, Classic Marine, The Sandeman Yacht Company, Ratsey & Lapthorn Sailmakers, A-Plan Marine Insurance, Joseph Perrier, the Elephant Boatyard, plus OneSails and Blakes & Taylors, the stage is set for a superb Hamble Classics Regatta at the RAFYC.
