Warsash Spring Series - Final day

After five fantastic weeks of racing in the Helly Hansen Warsash Spring Series, the final day's races (Sunday 23 April) had to be abandoned due to a lack of wind.

It was not for lack of trying . . . Competitors headed out for their start lines in fog with very little wind and little visibility, less than 1/2 mile.

Everyone hung around for the elusive breeze but it was not to be, and eventually both committees abandoned racing and sent the fleets in at around 13:00 hrs.

This was a disappointment to those boats hoping to improve their final positions, and a frustrating finish to a good Spring Series, but of course the weather is beyond the control of even the highly-respected Series Race Officers!
