Warming Pan

Despite a brisk northerly holding the temperature down, on Sunday morning it looked like spring had finally arrived, with a beautiful blue sky and sunshine.

Hamble River Sailing Club host the "Warming Pan" weekend for Merlin Rockets, National 12's, Fireflys and Foxers. The fleet assembled opposite the HRSC start in the Sunday sunshine, what a great sight.

The Merlin Rockets took off up river, spreading out among the moored boats.

Before heading down river to the outward mark, down by Hamble Point, you can see a couple of Fireflys mixing it up with the Merlins.

After the racing fleet had shot off up river, all was peaceful, the river rarely looking better.


  1. Isn't it exciting when sailing resumes after a long winter? The breeze looks great and it was a good turnout.

  2. That's great there is already sailing taking place. We are a good month away yet.
