Hamble Finale sees Juno take out the Overall P40 2019 Title.


After a tough weekend of racing that saw only a single light airs race sailed on the Saturday and a hectic action packed couple of races on the Sunday, it was Christopher Daniel and his Team aboard Juno that took out the final event of the season and managed to just sneak in front of Cobra for the Overall Season Championship..... by 1/2 a point. It was Nifty rounded out the podium in 3rd by way of a countback tiebreak over Sailplane, with both teams finishing on equal points. 

A massive Congratulations to Juno and her crew who in the end won 3 out of the 6 P40 events throughout the season to take the Title, with the battle between them and the ever consistent Cobra proving to be immense. These two teams have swapped the Overall lead throughout the season and have certainly been the benchmark for the chasing pack, however with 12 Different teams throughout the year managing race wins (First 40's Elke and Sailplane have won 4 out of the last 5 races) there are certainly many other boats within  this fleet that can be in the running for the 2020 season. 

Performance 40s have seen over 30 boats compete at the various regattas throughout 2019 and I personally would love to see over 15 boats consistently at every P40 event for 2020. The Performance 40 Blackdog was crowned the 2019 IRC National Champion (helped by the amazing turnout of P40's for this event) while next May the team on Cobra will be enjoying the sun in Antigua, due to winning the overall Royal Southern Summer Series. We have also had some international interest, welcoming the Dutch Teams Elke and Red Herring into the mix as well Swedish entry Vencom, while there has also been success on the social side of things with a 100% attendance for the Squadron Nationals Dinner and a great party at the Southern September Regatta..... we will be stepping this up for 2020. 

I will be releasing the 2020 dates very soon, while the idea is still mainly 2 day weekend events, action packed full of racing and a step up in the social program.
