Feva Winter Harbour Series
Thirty-four keen junior sailors launched on Tuesday morning from three clubs in Chichester Harbour to rendezvous on the water for the first racing event of the Feva Winter Harbour Series.
The Series is a collaborative effort, with Itchenor, Bosham and Hayling Island Sailing clubs alternating as hosts, and offers young Feva sailors from all Chichester Harbour sailing clubs the opportunity to compete in two-day, meet-on-the-water racing events during the winter months.
The wind was brisk, the racing was wet, competitive, safe and fun for both the cadet sailors and the parent helpers manning the safety patrol boats. The teamwork and skill demonstrated by both the sailors and the organising clubs was inspiring.
The two-day racing event was comprehensively won by Mark Jenkins-Jauma (helm) and Alex Sydenham (crew) from Hayling Island Sailing Club. Full results here.
The next races of the series are on the 18 & 19 December. Registration can be found here.
Thanks to Chris Hatton for providing the Photos.
