Entries open for the Royal Southern Yacht Club Summer Series RigIt June Regatta
The second edition of the Royal Southern Yacht Club Summer Series, the RigIt June Regatta, is open to entry for non-members and members alike. The overall winner of the four regatta series will win a fantastic all-inclusive entry to the 2020 edition of Antigua Sailing Week worth over £7000. The formula for deciding the overall winner of the Royal Southern Yacht Club Summer Series counts three quarters of the races, therefore teams that did not race in May still have a real chance of winning the series – but you have to be in it to win it!
The Royal Southern Yacht Club invites entries for a multitude of classes including: IRC, Club Class, Double Handed and Mixed Sportsboats as well as the J/88, HP30, J/70, Performance 40 and XOD classes. Up to three races a day are scheduled over a weekend of racing in the Solent on the 15-16 June. As with all regattas in the Royal Southern Yacht Club Summer Series, the RigIt June Regatta has plenty of activities ashore utilising the superb facilities at the modern clubhouse on the banks of the Hamble River.
