Please see below our 2021 'Class' Events. We have 4 well established IRC Events where we 'join in' and extract results (Warsash Spring, RORC IRC Nationals, Taittinger Regatta & Southern September), another existing IRC Event where we have our own Class start ( RORC VAC), our standalone Perforrmance 40 Nationals run by the Royal Yacht Squadron and a new and exciting event run by the Royal Thames Yacht Club that will see the Performance 40's have their own class start and be joined by the Quarter Tonners and Cape 31's, also enjoying their own class starts).
Please note that due to unforseen circumstances, the 2020 Nationals will be run on the weekend of April 10th & 11th by the RYS., where a 2020 National Champion will be decided and a curtain can be drawn on the 2020 Season.

ROYAL YACHT SQUADRON 2020 NATIONALS
10th-11th April 2021
Following a hugely successful 2019 National Championship, the 2020 edition was meant to run in early November 2020, however with covid forcing lockdowns and weather conditions not playing ball at the end of the season, the poplular decision was made to finish the 2020 season off in the Spring of 2021.
The 2021 Warsash Spring Series will consist of 2 Weekends of action packed racing. These will be called the Warsash Spring Championships and the Performance 40 Series will kick off with weekend two, while boats are also encouraged to join in the action the weekend before.
