2019 Double Handed Series


The Series: The ever popular RSYC Double Handed Series continues in a new format of a Main Series comprising 8 races, sub-divided into two sub-series (Solent and Passage), of 4 races each. Entries are welcome for individual races and series.

The Racing: Action starts as usual with the Spring Solent Double on Saturday 27th April. Don’t miss the early entry deadline on Thursday 25th April.

We anticipate racing will be in 3 classes - two IRC and one Club with the occasional guest appearance of a Multihull class if there is sufficient demand. We would encourage Class Captains and Secretaries to take up our offer of providing separate class results and trophies for any one design entering a minimum of 6 boats.

The Prizes: Bottle prizes are awarded for each race for the first three boats in each class (2 bottles each boat) and additional prizes and trophies for class winners of each race and each of the two Sub Series and the Main Series.

Race Dates:

Saturday 27th April          Spring Solent Double (Solent Series 1)

Saturday 25th May          West Princessa Double (Solent Series 2)

Saturday 15th June        Poole Bar Double (Passage Series 1)

Saturday 13th July         Weymouth Double leg 1 (Passage 2)

Saturday 24th Augus     Island Double (Passage 4)

Saturday 21st Sept        Nab Tower Double (Solent Series 3)

Saturday 5th Oct           Autumn Solent Double (Solent Series 4)

We won't know for sure how we'll be able to split the classes until just before the first race - the Spring Solent Double on Saturday 27th April. So get the word out there, encourage your friends to enter - the more boats we have the smaller the classes can be!
