    Warsash Spring Championships Weekend 2

    Another action packed weekend with 6 Sigma 38 crews out on the race course. The championships have seen some outstandingly close racing within the fleet but with no discards and black flagged starts there was disappointment for some seasoned competitors. Once again there were 4 different winners in the 6 races, Pavlova boldly won 3, With Alacrity solidly won 1, Light cunningly another and new comer, Machismo another. Light took a bullet in IRC and

    Warsash Spring Champs Weekend 1

    This weekend I've been through emotions ranging from euphoric to despair, my body is battered and bruised and I've been as close to 8 other people, both physically and emotionally, as it's possible to be. Every year at the start of the yacht racing season I reminded what an intense, enjoyable sport this is and how lucky the Sigma 38 Class is to have highly competitive teams, great one design competition, skilled and dedicated race

    Kindred Spirit Win First Race of Season

    The JOG season opener to Cherbourg saw three Sigma 38s competing in Class 5. Kindred Spirit was first, finishing just in time for dinner, with Paracelsus second and Inspiration third. KS was a very respectable third in class 5 and 4th in the competitive double handed series. Hats off to all three Sigma 38s on being the first to get outthere racing! JOG made the very sensible decision to abandon the return race due to

    The 2015 Rolex Fastnet

    13 Sigma 38 have provisional places for this classic offshore race for which the yacht was originally designed almost 30 years ago. The lucky ones are Galliver II, Gauntlet, Inspiration, Mouflon Noir, Pandanova, Persephone, Red Coat, Rho, Machismo, Sam, Vitesse, With Alacrity and Yoda with a number on the waiting list. However getting a place is only the first and probably the easiest step. The Rolex Fastnet is not a race for novices, crews and
