Here are the overall results for the Fast Cruise Series 2016-17 on the LSC Handicap and Progressive Handicap systems, including the results for the final Fast Cruise of the season to the Royal Southern Yacht Club, Hamble, on Saturday, 25 March 2017.

Once again all of the boats taking part in the rally sailed the same course which saw us sailing in the Central Solent and finishing in Southampton Water before heading to the Royal Southern Yacht Club, Hamble, for the grand finale Dinner and Prize-Giving.

Having suffered from lack of wind in the previous Fast Cruise, there was no shortage of wind this time and we had a steady 20-25 knots, with gusts of up to c.35 knots on occasion! We all had a cracking sail with some 'interesting' moments. With wind and tide against us on the upwind legs most boats had a fairly wet time with plenty of spray flying around and crews were kept very busy tacking to get out of the tide.

We were all tucked up in Port Hamble Marina in time for a pontoon party actually on the pontoon this time (much to our surprise) before the sun went down at the end of a very bright spring day.

We look forward to seeing you all for the 2017-18 Series, starting with a joint Fast Cruise and Frostbite rally to Cowes on Saturday, 14 October 2017.
