The Royal Southern YC hosted the Hamble Classic regatta at the weekend, with a finish line for some of the classes in the river, so we found an upstairs table at the Beach Hut Cafe to watch the action.
The XOD fleet were the next to finish, working their way up the crowded river.
Not the leaders but these two finishing neck and neck.
It seemed like the gaffers and bigger boats had the finish line out in Southampton Water, but we got to see them returning to he marine. This looks like and Ed Burnett design modern gaffer.
Definitely an original gentleman's yacht, Thalia with full crew.
Another local boat, which I think is a Harrison Butler.
And another very local boat SCOD, South Coast One Design.
Duet looks lovely if a little complex.
