The Warsash Spring Championship was the venue for the J/70 UK Grand Slam Series with seven windward leeward races over two days of tight racing right through the 16-boat J/70 fleet.
There was close racing right through the J/70s with highly competitive starts, mark rounding and plenty of duels from front to back.
The J/70 UK Grand Slam Series continues outside The Solent with Round 2 as part of International Paint Poole Regatta, 30 April to 2 May.
