Latest Information

Last year's winners the Birdham Bandits return to defend their title at the 2017 Wessex Winter Warmer.

Hot on their heals will be Society who lost out to the Bandits in last year's semi-final.

Some newer alumni teams will be making their inaugural appearances, with some more recognisable names returning for another bite at the title.
Fresh from the Western BUSA Qualifiers and looking to maintain their clean sheet from last weekend, Exeter Blue look like the uni team to be reckoned with this weekend. Exeter Black were top uni at the Warmer in 2016, but has there been a shake up at Exeter...or have they just changed their colours!?

All will be revealed when racing gets underway this weekend at Spinnaker Sailing Club!
