Usually Spring series has 4 races within it whereas the Summer series includes 4 or 5 races.

Spring Series, assuming 4 races sailed, usually has one discard whilst Summer Series, assuming 5 races sailed may have 2 discards. Overall series has 2 discards.

Spring Series race results go towards the Fasson Trophy. The Fasson Trophy was presented to the Club in 1978 by Fasson Ltd. who were closely associated with the Club through Mr. Donald Kember. This is a silver gilt cup and highly contested each year.

Summer Series results go towards the Jambo Cup. The Jambo Cup was presented to the Club in 1992 by keen racer Peter Cossins. Peter was a keen racing enthusiast having a series of boats called Jambo ending in the Mustang 30 Jambo V.

For the overall winner of the two series combined  there is the Vice Commodore’s Cup. The Vice Commodore’s Cup is a silver rose bowl presented to the Club by Mrs Toulmin in memory of her late husband Mr. J. Toulmin who, at the time of his death, was Secretary to the Club.
